Winter time seems to set a chill in my bones that lasts until the first decent heat wave and it finally arrived yesterday, in the form of 96 degrees. Yep, I had a nine-hour work day but every chance I got, I ran outside and lounged at the picnic table. Carefully maneuvering my tush around the bird poop, I placed my back against the wall and let the sun's rays penetrate my skin. Today is much better and, since I didn't have to be at work until 4, I grabbed my swim suit and ran racing outside like a kid turned loose in a candy shop. I am thawed out. Officially. And I'm looking forward to tomorrow because it's going to be hotter and I have the day off! :)
I am also planning on having a piece of Key Lime Pie tomorrow. It is my planned sinful treat for the week. I've been pretty good for the most part except for the little slip-up at the beginning of the week. But I walk. ALOT. My little pedometer tells me that I do no less than 8 miles a day at work so it helps when these things occur. Not factoring in going up and down the ladder continuously and test-riding my bikes after assembly. :) Ohhh, how I love summer. I feel like I'm in another world now. It is days like this that I do not mind being in Ohio so much. But come October, I'm headed back to Fort Walton, Florida. I'm already thinking deviously...my plan is to bury myself in the sand the last day there so no one can find me and maybe my sisters will leave without me.
I really don't care to beach bum it. Really.
Bre has been home for the weekend and stays until Tuesday morning. She is returning home (!!!!!!!! :) !!!!!!) for the summer on June 6. We've already made plans for numerous things and I have officially laid down the law at work about cutting my hours so I can spend as much time with her as I can. It's hard to believe she is going to be a junior at college in August. This child has made the Dean's List each time it rolls around and gosh-darn I'm so very proud. Not to mention that she is absolutely the most beautiful woman I've ever encountered. She is my heart.
Well, I just wanted to check in while I had a few moments. I wish you all the very best and enjoyable Memorial Day!! Let's not forget to take a few moments to remember what this day is really all about then set out to spend time with your family and friends. Stay safe out there and hug often...
God bless. :)
