After weeks (or, at least, what felt like weeks) of lousy, rainy, cloudy, grim weather, we had a full week of almost entirely perfect weather. Warm (even gloriously hot) air, cloudless skies, and beaming sunshine have graced us here in Maine. I spent my afternoons while Lizzie napped lounging in the new house's hammock, inhaling the perfect scent of liliacs (I need to find a perfume that's scented with liliacs), reading a book and eventually falling asleep. I've realized that this is the way I'll likely be able to spend many of my afternoons this summer and I can't say I've much to complain about.
This latest bout of sunshiney weather has infused a new skip in my step. I'm feeling invigerated for the months to come and am looking forward to spending lots of time outdoors. I snapped a few pictures of our outdoor adventures this past week, so I'm goin to share them now.
|Cold water! Lizzie playing in the little turtle pool her great-grandparents brought her.|
|Ah... The good life :-) It'll be nice we get real furniture instead of bright orange folding chairs.|
|Just one of the many beautiful flowers that have cropped up in our garden.|
|The pathway down to the saaaaaauna (trust me, not as fancy as it seems) and our firepit.|
