I would like to take this moment to apologize to any family and friends - and anyone else that may be lurking - who live in the Midwest. This morning I woke up and felt a little chilly. So much so that I turned the fan so it was only pointing at my feet, which were sticking out from beneath the sheet. My bare feet, sans blankets.
I've been running around all morning in a tank top, underwear, and flip flops, closing the blinds against the bright sun. To be fair, it has been cloudy for the past day and a half, so it's not quite as bright as normal, but it still creates a wicked glare on my monitor. In fact, my clothes didn't fully dry on the line yesterday because the sun wasn't as strong.
Last night my dad and I walked along the beach to meet Ibis at work, then we had dinner in an outdoor garden, surrounded by trees and flowers (and two stray kittens, weird). Our biggest complaint was the bits of plant matter that dotted the table and that it was a little more muggy than normal (which I didn't notice).
My beach plans have been postponed until tomorrow, but by then the clouds should pass and the sun will be back in its full glory.
So to all of you, my friends and family currently freezing your tooshes off in sub-zero temperatures: I'm sorry.
