A perfect day

It is absolutely beautiful here today. Clear blue skies and bright sunshine. Gorgeous. Days like today make me ready for summer.

I miss being on the lake with friends - music blaring from the speakers of the boat. The way the cold lake water feels on your skin after sitting for hours under the warm summer sun. Boiled peanuts and cold beer. Flip-flops and tan lines.

In a town as small as this one, the only things worth doing are outside. We have two lakes and we're just 75 miles from the beach. But in the winter, those attractions don't mean much.

I'm pretty sure that's why I've been feeling so blah lately. I hate being couped up inside. I think I get my energy from the sun. I need to be able to get out and soak it up.

And you know what? I'm wasting the pretty day! I'm in here blogging about it, instead of going out and enjoying it!

Sorry people... Toby and I are going out to play.

Wish you were here--we're going out to play, too!

Flip flops and tan lines = great name for a band. Or a book.
