A Breath of Fresh Air

Yesterday was stifling; heavy air, 38 degrees Celsius/100 F. It was heaven to go down to the beach and wade up to my knees in the cool bay. See-through shrimp and tiny fish came to nibble at our feet. Who needs to go to Thailand or a spa and pay to have their feet immersed in a fish tank?

Last night, thunder rolled omniously; lightning purpled the looming clouds. Wind snatched leaves from trees and tossed them like confetti to greet the coming storm. The storm disappointed, spattering us with only a few drops before going somewhere else, where the party was perhaps better.

Disappointed, I closed my shutters, left open the better to watch the light show.

We woke up to a day that topped out in the low 70s, the sky still gray from last night's unkept promise of rain.

The Sprout and I had sourdough pancakes for breakfast and then headed to the seaside to pick a bouquet.

Yeah, it wouldn't have felt that "cool" if not for the previous day's temp.

Two sorts of plantain ♥

And doesn't S look completely at home where she is--what a marvelous upbringing you're giving her.

I love the thing for pjthompson--perfect. Did you strew those yellow flowers?

I did strew the flowers. I was going to make one of those flower mandalas, but my little helper didn't like my artistic vision. Then I saw the "Pam" and turned my attention to that while she rearranged everything else I had done. :P
