I know most people living in our neck of the woods probably cringed at the 90+ degree weather we experienced today, but it actually made me smile. After waking to an almost freezing 34 degrees the other morning, I savored the return of summer, even if only for a day or two. The cool, crisp days of autumn are a welcomed reprieve after the hot, humid summer, but I know too well what is lurking afterwards...the all-too-long, blustery, cold winter that New England is so well known for. I will, therefore, accept any warm days that the season has to offer. It's pretty crazy, though...fearing frost and wearing a wool sweater one day and seeing temperatures soar into the 90's the next, but that's New England! The thermometer on my car read 102 degrees today, and I parked in the shade. Even so, the heat from the day made me smile, and I thought I would share a few other smile invoking moments of the week.
...using the new "teacher" pens that Hubby left as a surprise on my desk one morning (with a sweet note)
...finding the perfect material and tutorial for a quilt I want to make as a gift
...sipping iced coffee while waiting for the kids' soccer practice to end
...witnessing my daughter, who struggled with school the past two years, complete Algebra, Chemistry, Apologetics, World Geography, an English composition, and two Latin classes before 1:00 pm with enthusiasm
...reading this blog
...watching this new Masterpiece program with Hubby on Sunday night after the Littles are tucked into bed
