It is pretty much summer around here.  It is green everywhere and although the water is pretty cold at the lake, the sun is warm and I even get hot making sure nobody drowns.  It’s really nice when friends join us there.  It is just beautiful and lovely and green and warm and amazing outside.  I love this weather, it may even be worth the long and dreary winter!  The first pic is of the village green in the morning– it gets light at like 5:45 am, so it looks like it’s early afternoon, but it was only 7:30 a.m.  The second pic is a few of my boys trying to catch fish with a net.

These pictures were taken in  Cambridge, Massachusetts this past week.  It is a lovely town.  I love Boston, I love New England!!  These pillars are at MIT.  We ate at an amazing vegan diner called Veggie Galaxy just a couple blocks from here.  Wow!!

Warm Weather!!

We actually got a little hot today.  It feels so incredibly good to walk around barefoot outside and to not need a coat or a jacket!!  I sat out on our front steps to take a break this afternoon.  I just soaked in the sunshine and sat there enjoying the warmth and the sweet smells and the dandelions and the grass and the sounds of the bugs and birds.  After this winter especially, it feels so incredibly awesome!!! I go to the same places I have been going all winter and my body sort of remembers the cold and I start to automatically brace myself for a big gust of cold, and then there is nothing, but warm pleasantness.  I am loving it!!  Spring is just barely starting here, there are still a lot of bare trees, these pics are from my brother’s farm in VA.  I must say it is tempting to move south, it was so beautiful!!  But it is beautiful here too– just in a different way.
