This morning the sun came out for about five minutes.
Really, this summer has been so rainy, that nothing else matters. Trust me.
And then our day went like this...
Our daughter had a few friends over for an impromptu cookout/party. When they got here this morning, the sun popped out for those 5 minutes.
Then it went away, so the kids went downstairs to play Guitar Hero World Tour. I sat on the basement steps and watched while they did Michael Jackson's Beat It. It was hilarious because they butchered it, but it was also nostalgic and a bit sad for me, considering recent events.
And then there came the sun again. Blue sky! Sunshine! Warmth!
We all ran frantically outside to soak up any fleeting rays. But miracle of miracles, the clouds parted and there was a LOT of sun. For about three hours, we soaked, we grilled burgers, we jumped on the trampoline, we went for a walk, and we took full advantage of this rare sunny day.
The fog and clouds are rolling back in now as I type this. But it's ok. We've had a small reprieve. Dare I hope for a repeat performance tomorrow?
I don't dare.
