I nearly had an orgasm (slight exaggeration, but I was VERY happy) when I saw the sun at 8am. After months of gloom summer has finally decided to make an appearance. Energy supplements can officially be stored away for winter. Daily espresso shots? Who needs them! Shorts have been donned and swimsuits are making an enthusiastic, albeit slightly timid appearance.
Today I dusted off the inflatable kiddie pool and turned the hose on high. Yes, I know we are in a drought but I am living the dream. Well, the dream of a 7 year old with no pool of her own...and of course, ahem, it was all for Fabrizio. I know he'd rather be no where near a body of water larger than the bath tub (which in this case it barely is) and he finds the sun a little strong for his eyes. I am just too excited to finally feel the heat of summer and am more than happy to cover him from head to toe in what could possibly pass as a mini burka while we spend the afternoon splashing in 3 inches of water.
Good times. Good times.
