We had a quiet holiday weekend. The weather wasn’t as warm as expected, and Sunday brought some interesting lightning and thunderstorms, but we were able to hit the pool
And made up some grilled salmon following a recipe in the recent Sunset magazine
Sitting on some fresh summer corn (yea sweet corn!) and tomatoes from our garden (yea fresh garden tomatoes!) served with margaritas, made one afternoon enjoyable.
Last week it finally started getting hot. I walked out to my car after work, started it up and looked down at the dashboard thermometer saying 113 (45c) and yes, felt pretty hot in there. It took a while for the air conditioner to cool the car down, but it was cold in there by the time I got home. Usually I just drive with the windows down, a throwback to my convertible days, but it’s a little too noisy on the freeways to do that at high speed. Mornings are really nice – it’s around 78 (26c) when the sun is coming out, we sit on the back patio watching the hummingbirds fight over the feeder and listening to all of the birds chirping in the bushes, drink our coffee and just enjoy the atmosphere.
