In a surprise move by Seattle, the weather for 4th of July was gorgeous. Sunny with a breeze, temps in the mid to high 70's, no rain in sight...definitely atypical. And my parents made the most of it. When I called to check in late this morning, Dad was on the driving range and Mom was eating lunch with girlfriends outside in the courtyard.
Later in the afternoon, I called again and Mom had just finished a nap and was gearing up to head outside to once again dine al fresco. She's feeling so much better each day out from the surgery. Great appetite, less aches and pains and an easier time sleeping. And enjoying all of her visitors.
My weekend was also really nice. Gary and I spent all day Sunday and Monday outside with friends. I am covered in bug bites, full of BBQ and so content. As we were coming home tonight, the sky erupted into a magical sunset. This photo is taken from a train, so it's not the best quality, but you can still get a sense of what a beautiful weekend this was. For all of us.
