Here comes the sun

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

After a wild day of thunderstorms and tornado sirens yesterday, we had a lovely, restful day at home. It felt like the first official day of summer. . . blue skies, bright sun and plenty of water! The girls have hardly been able to contain themselves since Toph put up the pool this past weekend. So after a couple of days of filtering, adjusting PH levels, and allowing the freezing hose water to warm in the sun, today was finally GO TIME. And go they did! Starling picked up right where she left off last summer, exhibiting her aquatic feats of daring and skill (and remarkable lung capacity). Chickadee, who can now touch the bottom with ease, performed water ballet, and received several unsolicited swimming pointers.

After our fun in the sun, we came inside to prepare dinner. Chickadee helped me to wash and cut the radishes that we received in this week’s CSA share, which were the most beautiful specimens I think I’ve ever seen.

Here comes the sun, and I say it’s all right.
