Now, I don’t want to jinx anything but it has been *whispers* sunny and warm in Michigan for the last week.
January through March is the worst time of the year but it’s been between 40-60 degrees lately and the sun has been making an appearance, at least for a portion, of most days lately.
If you don’t live in the midwest, you won’t know how it feels waking up day after day to a dull, gray sky, low temps and bitter winds. To say it’s utterly miserable and depressing is a vast understatement.
Not recently though! This weekend it was in the 60s and the sun was constantly out – which worked perfectly for me. I took a much needed personal day and spent as much time outside, wearing sunnies and being unburdened by a heavy coat as I could!
Three days of waking up without an alarm clock to this face with nothing to do but roll out of bed and make breakfast and slowly enjoy a big mug of coffee.
Saturday, we played in the yard and the Wolf got a much needed bath.
Is there anything better than a soft, clean pup?
Completely exhausted, Lu dried off in the sun while I worked on some work (taking more study breaks than I’ll admit to go cuddle).
Now, you know how much I love my Sunday mornings. Cuddles first and then coffee in bed while reading a good book. I live for mornings like these.
Being able to crack the window and let in some fresh air and hear the birds chirping was just icing on the cake.
When we finally rolled out of bed, we harnessed up for a walk in the sun along the lake. Shedding jackets as we went and stopping here and there to point out our dream houses.
The face of pure happiness.
Completely exhausted, we came home. Lu to nap and me to get ready for this week’s midterms.
Studying isn’t half as bad when you can do it next to a window with the sun streaming in across your face.
As much as I love sweater weather, this weekend gave me a taste for the summer and it cannot come soon enough!
