The optimism of a nice weekend in May.

It is the first nice wek­end in May and like all Seat­tlites I am doing all sorts of get­ting ready for sum­mer things outside.

We have an entire week of Sun­ny days for­cast so it’s time to start hav­ing tea on the porch in the morn­ing. I’m still pleased with the new cush­ions I made last summer.

tes here tomorrow.

We’ve had the BBQ out for almost a month. Clear­ly out­door din­ing sea­son is upon us. The table and charirs are set up and a cou­ple of lit­tle sqawks about the conopy are fixed.

Final­ly and best of all: first loads of laun­dry on the line. Mmmm, smells go good.

Fresh breezes and sunlight

This is all, of course, much silli­ness because sum­mer is still 2 months away for us. But after 30 years of liv­ing out here in the west I still can’t avoid get­ting the ear­ly sum­mer start.
