Summery May Weekend - Day Two
With temperatures around 80 degrees we embrace our first summer-like weekend of the year.
Yesterday was Day Two in our Magical Mystery Tour of Joy. (Is that over-stating things? Do I remain so winter-crusted that I must gush? Yes. No shame here.)
After pushing open both large bedroom windows at dawn, Tom and I crawled back under the covers together - Saturday relaxed - while warmish summer-scented air entered our room and lungs, played with our hair and curtains, and like a tiny fairy shaking dust from her luminescent wand sparked imagination and enthusiasm.
Awakening to a new season.
Pancakes, sausage, and kiwi brunch in the company of two beach-cheeked daughters.
They did the dishes, we headed for the Saturday and Farmers' Markets.
Oh the delight! We bought a blueberry bush and an orange daisy-like plant.
And spring greens by the bagful.
And chuckled at dichotomy in a town known for its politically correct Earth-Respectors. At the hippie-infested Saturday Market, no less.
Strolling, perusing, jostling, and sunshine.
While Tom and I gallivanted, Cassie and Caroline busily carried out a surprise by setting out the summer outdoor furniture including the table and umbrella so we four could have meals on the sun porch while the weather holds. Huge smile from me on seeing that!
After a good night's sleep - windows wide open - today's dawn teases.
Brand spanking new day and I'm ready to open it!
