Isn’t a touch of sunshine lovely. It’s been such a bad winter it seemed like we would never see it again.
Normally I’m a rainy type of girl myself. I love the shorter days and being warm and snug inside while the rain and wind batters the windows. But today the sunshine has even brought out the best in me.
Due to my injury last July I missed most of the summer, it was spent fretting over leg related issues. It passed in the blink of an eye and before I knew it Winter was upon us. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t miss a whole summer of not having to mow the lawn, nope, no complaints there.
But sunshine definitely makes you feel more energised. It gives you a boost, not unlike a good kick up the hole to be honest. People break out their shorts and t shirts, eager to make the most of them on what could potentially be the only day of sunshine, you can just never tell.
I love the smell of fresh cut grass, laundered sheets blowing in the wind and bar be Que’s. I’m not sure I appreciated them before my lost summer.
That said give me a couple of weeks. Sunshine also brings the dreaded heat rash and the mild hay fever I didn’t have until my middle 30’s. Yay for getting older.
It’s to rain again tomorrow so all I can say is, lets make the most of today.

I love summer. My wife melts in summer. I told her the other day “Okay it is finally spring to me. I see buds on the oaks and trees around us”. I love sit in the screened in balcony of our old home and listen to the sound of the wind rustling the leaves in the 6 100+ year old oaks that surround our 90 year old home. The oaks are truly magnificent if my wife and I joined hands we could not embrace them. Now.. mind you I hate fall.. lots of leaves =D
Plus forgot to mention I am always putting charcoal on the grill and grilling at least 4 days a week =D
Grrrrr!!! No such luck with the weather here ever! Lol
