Yesterday was a gorgeous day here. It got up to the upper 60s finally and the sun was shining brightly. I even braved the breeze and took my new swimsuit out for a test run and laid on the chaise lounge for an hour. Certainly not as warm as I would have liked, but way better than it has been. In fact, the furnace is still on…and needs to be.
But I was only able to be out for that brief hour. I just had to get things cleaned up from the redecorating. It was driving me batty. So, I really worked hard at getting everything put away. Then I got distracted with packing. I’m only paying for a carry-on bag for an entire week. Sure swimsuits don’t take up much room, but I also need clothes for going out nearly every day. It is hard to put that much stuff into a carry on. (I succeeded by the way)
So, here was this sunny day and I was stuck inside doing chores. I woke up in the night to rain and again this morning so it couldn’t be delayed gratification. Oh well, I still have a few odds and ends to do to get things back in order. And a dreary cool morning was a perfect excuse to start a new book and read.
Today, I’m thankful for yesterday’s sun and the time I did get to sit out in it. And I’m thankful for a dreary day to lay around and read and get everything finished up before vacation in three days.
