sporadic sunshine

Oh, good grief, the difference sunshine makes. Like coming up for air! Yes, it went down to -5°C last night; yes, there was snow the day before. But today is already +12°C and THE SUN IS SHINING!!!!

And I’m just gonna sit here in it…

Bliss…

We did have sun last Saturday, and that was a jewel of a day. Did nothing. Organized. Puttered. Cut quilt squares. Sat outside on the deck and almost complained how hot it was. So nice.

The next day, Mother’s Day, we invited over friends and family for steak. Instead of dictating the menu, I told everyone to bring their favourite salad. We ended up with a garlicky chickpea, a red pepper quinoa, an Asian noodle, an asparagus, and a potato salad. The buffet table was just beautiful, and absolutely no work on my part! All I had to do was find the bottle opener and the corkscrew (and there was a lot of that)!

Today, we are on day two of sunshine, and I won’t even check the weather forecast. Just keep the weekend and the sunshine coming!
