Don't blink, it's summer!

It was warm enough to eat outside!
~~~
The outdoors tablemats
came out of the cupboard!
~~~
And a candle!
We lit a candle!
~~~
There were roses...
from the garden!
~~~
We drank chilled white wine
and ate fresh strawberries!
~~~
And somehow, magically,
it felt like Saturday
even though it was Tuesday.

  4. I ate my lunch out in the glorious sun and then thought 'stuff it' and sat and read my book in the sunshine for the afternoon. It seemed rude to waste it.

  7. Don't blink is just right. I have done washings galore, for two whole days, all line-dried But I recall my first fortnight here, last July, where I did the same, until the weather changed - seemingly for ever - and I had to give in and buy a tumble drier.

  10. It just makes one feel so much better to see the sun, doesn't it. i'd begun to give up hope for a break from the dreary grey skies.

  12. My son is visiting a friend in Cambridge this week. It's his first time in England. I've been watching the weather websites :) I'm so glad it's sunny for you all... while it's very gray and drippy wet here in Seattle.

  13. Can't say the same here. Rain, ominous clouds, ruogh sea, sad tourists ...
    UGH.

  14. I saw the sun too, but I wasn't rash enough to go out in it, I might spontaneously combust.
