Since you got to hear me rant about our freezing cold, snowbound wicked winter, it's only right that I tell you this.
The last week of spring has been amazing. Spring has been a bit wishy-washy, not wanting to give up winter, more gray days than I'd like, and a fair bit of rain, so the fact that is has showed it's true colors this past week has been quite welcome. I am enjoying it with a grateful heart.
Last night we sat out and watched the sunset. It was a beautiful end, to a beautiful day with that pretty, spring light streaming across the lawn and sunset meadows.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Now that the World Cup is in full force, I thought an ode to Brazil would be appropriate. You'll probably all remember this version that launched the career of Astrud Gilberto. Well, at least if you're as old as I am. Her vocals are amazing. Click here if you're reading via email.
Then of course, there is Ms. Warwick. Click here if you're reading via email.
This version I found by chance and I'm glad I did. These kids knock it out of the park. Click here if you're reading via email.
This weekend will be full. Tonight, if the breeze dies down, more than likely a campfire outback to enjoy more of this beautiful weather. Tomorrow is my niece Cait's baby shower. She's got a month to go and we'll be welcoming Miss Olivia. Sunday I hope to work in the garden and the yard. It would be nice if the pool was ready to go by then, but we will see. Don't miss the USA v Portugal on in Sunday night World Cup action at 6pm est. It's a big one! Of course, they all are. It's the World Cup.
Got anything planned for the weekend?
Whatever you do, make it a good one.
Ciao for now,
