Warm Weather, Finally

Maddy here.

Wow! It was warm outside today. I slathered on my 70+ sunscreen with Helioplex, donned my Serengeti shades, then went outside to read a new book. Bliss!!

I love to feel the warmth of the sun radiating across the surface of my skin and down to my very core. If I close my eyes, I can almost hear the soothing sounds of Caribbean steel drums not far off, and the cool waves lapping at the hot sandy beach. I can feel the . . . what? . . . rain?

Of course, the islanders had pirates to deal with, right? Now, I don't actually have murderous and thieving pirates skulking about, but I've got my little brother, Mica, running amok with a water hose!

Below is a link to someone else who likes to read outside:
The Joys of Reading Outside: "Today’s post is, quite simply, an ode to the loveliness of being ..."

That's all for now,


  1. Reading outside is one of the joys of my summer. So far, it's only been warm enough here in western Nebraska for one afternoon of outside reading. It needs to start warming up soon!

  2. I'm sure it will warm up soon. I used to live in Atkinson (north central Nebraska). I recall it can get pretty warm up there in the summer. I sure did enjoy living in NE.

    Thanks for the post!
