It was 88 degrees here today! I couldn’t believe how hot it got but could not have been happier! I love that smell that summer has, I love the feeling of the sun beating down on me, I love the way the ocean shimmers, the way the sea breeze comes through my windows in the morning. Summer is my favorite time of year by far. When other people complain it’s hot I’m usually enjoying it and relishing in the heat. Of course some days when it’s 90% humidity I’m uncomfortable but for the most part I can’t get enough. I’m the kind of person who can lay out in the sun all day long while everyone around me is hiding in the shade or staying cool in the AC. I’m a whole different person in the summer then in the winter, I’m just genuinely happier. So I hope my posts continue to reflect my good mood. I know there were quite a few posts in the winter where I was such a complainer.
This morning I had a Luna bar before heading out for a walk.
What took me so long to try these? They are fantastic, I still prefer clif bars but these are a very close second.
Remember those flowers I was going to plant? Yeah Andrew did it while I farted around on the internet.
Parlsey and sweet basil, can’t wait to use these. I also have some spinach to plant.
And here are some flowers before they were planted.
Snap dragons, the spinach, and some other annuals, I forget what we got, they were a 1.88 at Lowes last night and that’s really the only reason we got them.
By the time we got out on the trail it was already hot, I think it was almost 10. Andrew kindly took some more pictures of the trail this morning for me.
Someone informed me these are called Sea Geese, they look like ducks to me, but I have absolutely no clue if he was correct or not. Okay, he didn’t inform me, he told his kid and I overheard.
I swear Andrew would make an awesome paparazzi he always takes pictures of me walking for no reason what-so-ever and I never even notice until I look at the camera.
By the time we were done walking it was almost 12 so we decided to count our bars for breakfast and get deli bagel sandwiches.
I got grilled chicken breast with fresh mozzarella and balsamic vinegar on a whole grain bagel.
I can’t describe how good this was, I expected deli sliced chicken not a big juicy grilled piece. It really was amazing and I ate 3/4’s of it. Afterwards we went shopping for a birthday present for Andrew’s grandma, (we’re very last minute), we grabbed a beautiful hanging flower arrangement and I also got an Iced D&D coffee.
Andrew is clearly a creep. And his arms aren’t that white anymore, they are bright red. He’s my lobster. (Friends anyone?)
We hung out with his family for a few hours and then were headed back to my parents to spray paint our table. It wasn’t dry when we left so I don’t have an after shot but I have plenty of pictures of it in process.
I’m a graffiti artist!
I’ll make sure to take some pictures when I go to get it tomorrow. Oh and do you see that pink thing on the garbage can in the background? That’s my cell phone, it now has brown spots on it because I’m an idiot.
So we once again ate dinner at my parents tonight (and spoiler alert I will be tomorrow too!) We had turkey burgers and kettle chips! Perfect summer food!
Mine was about 4 ounces (we got a one lb package and split it into 4 but didn’t have a scale at my parents house so I may be a little off.) With Monterey jack cheese, a pickle, and some onions.
Then I had another pickle:
And then a bite of an extra hot dog.
Well I’m off to try to catch up on my blog reading! Hope you all had a great weekend and I can’t wait to read what you have all been up to!
