Bring on the Heat

The pool is ready, the lawn is mowed. The floatie is inflated and ready to go. I test drove it in the pool yesterday.

Today and Thursday the temperatures are supposed to be in the high 90's. If only I didn't have to work. I see myself baking in the sun in my pool.

But alas--the reality of life is that I do not get to enjoy the first sultry days of summer. I must wait for the magical convergence of weather and the weekend.

But it is coming. I can feel it.

And so too, is the weekend.

Two weeks from tomorrow, I leave for vacation.

The beach is calling to me already.

And the heat brings relaxation, waves, sun, and time away for reflection and renewal.

How can that be bad?
