The weather around these parts has been beautiful. Gorgeous. So perfectly Californian.
Today was no different. It was about 75 degrees and really, just perfect.
So I decided to spend much of the day sheltered inside, grading essays.
By the time Luke returned home at 2p.m. and I stepped outside, the sun actually hurt my eyes. I needed to get out.
Off we went to meet my sister for a short walk through a nice, woody area she discovered close to her house:
It is so refreshing to get outside after being stuck inside for most of the day.
Then Jon, my brother-in-law, BBQ’d for all of us and I just got to sit in the sun and grade some more. But at least I was outside and didn’t have to cook anything for dinner.
I’m thankful I got a break today and got to enjoy the sun and beautiful weather we’ve been having. I’m thankful my brother-in-law BBQ’d. And I’m thankful my sister let my kids tear apart her backyard and house (cause I finally got around to cleaning my house last night.).
