Return to Sunlight

For those of us who live in the Pacific Northwest, with it’s extended dark and soggy winters, there’s a reason for it all. When the sunlight returns, and the days warm up, we are surrounded by the most beautiful colors and sights one could imagine. It’s our reward, our raison d’etre, our celebration of light.

    I’m loving this weather until we try and go to bed and the house is still 76 degrees downstairs and in the 80s upstairs. 🙂

    But I have been getting so much outdoor reading (and yard work) done and the kid has been shedding his extra winter weight so we are a very happy family!

    Oh, I am loving it too! I kind of want to walk out of work, grab my kids out of school and head to the lake though. That would get me in some trouble. 🙂

    I’ve seen those gorgeous blossoms in Seattle at this time of year. They seemed bigger and brighter to me. Some really breathtaking.

    Gavin, it’s so nice to have the sunshine, but it got way too hot this week. I’m glad for the cooler marine air that has finally arrived.

    Nancy, I can understand why you prefer winter after the last few days of scorching heat here. Add humidity to that, and I’d have to move even further north!

    Kristen, I’m sure that heat this week was as awful at your house as at ours. I’m so grateful it didn’t last long. My classroom was in the high 80s, and no one can learn in that kind of heat.

    Les, puttering in your garden sounds delightful. I puttered a bit on my deck, and it’s the sunshine that makes me miss our yard (pre-condo years).

    Kailana, I hope your nice weather continues, without too much heat. It’s so nice to sit outside and read.

    Kim, what a lovely thought! I hope you’ll be able to make that happen at least once or twice. Work does get in the way of our real lives, doesn’t it!?

    Mom, that was such a lovely visit when you came up at this time of year and first saw all the azaleas and rhodies in bloom.
