A Perfect June Day





















The weather is absolutely perfect today, at least in my opinion it is. The baby blue sky is pleasingly plump with an abundance of oversized cotton ball clouds.

When I arose at 7:00, the temperature was in the mid-sixties and the sky was an uninterrupted blue. I tended to my dental office responsibilities from 8:00 until noon when we closed for the day. I toted my bike to NorthPointe and cycled the country roads comfortably as the temperatures topped off at a glorious 75 degrees.

After a quick shower, I hopped in my truck and headed home, making a quick stop for a few grocery items on the way. Presently, I'm on the screen porch writing these sentences describing my extraordinarily pleasing day.

When Lon arrives home after his work day, we'll cook pork chops on the grill. He'll leave for an hour or so to watch our son, Jared, play softball while I bask in the silence and solitude with my latest book. Before bedtime, we'll cut thick slabs of watermelon and savor its summer sweetness, adding glitter to an already excellent day.

How do you spend a perfect day like this when it arrives unexpectedly and you're able to fill at least a few hours of it as you like?

(The photos above are from previous photo shoots. I'm too lazy and comfy today to get up and take new ones. I'm quite sure you won't mind. I like to think that as friends we find it easy to cut each other some slack).

LENORE: I hope you slept well so you can enjoy your last days in Singapore. More shopping? Shoes to match your purse?

Sounds like an absolutely wonderful day! I'm more relaxed just from reading about it. The pictures are gorgeous. That's the nice thing about capturing a moment in pictures -- you can share them any time you like.

JANA: I feel like I'm in heaven because today was again a perfect day. I hope your summer bestows you with some of this perfection as well.

Thank you for stopping in, Jana.
