Respite from the Storm

Yesterday provided a much needed preview of summer weather to come. We had our first day of greater that 80 degrees, sunshine, and no rain until late.

We had friends over and sat around the pool enjoying the weather, the wine, the food and the conversation.

It was comfortable, the mosquitos have not yet masses to drain blood from unprotected and unsuspecting bodies so even the evening was pleasant.

It was a great ending to the week--the exclamation point to cruise into the weekend. We talked into the evening and watched the stars and the bats grace the gathering evening sky.

It was the unofficial beginning to the summer outdoor living season. Unfortunately, as soon as the party broke up, thunderstorms arrived to wash away any memory of the start of the outdoor living season.

But this morning, amid the drenched dampness the birds are singing, the doors are open and yes, my three week allergy affliction has finally broken and I'm feeling normal! The trees are in near full leaf and late-Spring has finally arrived.

I'm more than ready.
