Don’t you just love a lazy summer day–a day where you haven’t anywhere to be, at any particular time? Me, too. That’s precisely why Saturday stands as a favorite. I sipped coffee all morning, went for a walk, then headed for fields of lavender . . .
Can’t you just smell it?
We perused goods, nibbled lavender cookies, and sampled lavender lemonade. From the looks of things, good times were had by all–except maybe for poor mama bird; she was much too busy having a nervous breakdown due all the shenanigans going on directly below her babies . . .
We took in a late lunch, before I headed home to hose off all the dirt and grime of the day. Then, I napped.
A hard day, indeed.
To cap it all off, my mum and I braved thunderstorm warnings to watch old cars cruise Main . . .
There were all kinds, you know . . .
Including an old ambulance . . .
One funky tow truck (whose horn, sounding something akin to a large mosquito, made us all chuckle) . . .
Even a handsome pups or two . . .
The threatening skies gave us a full hour and a half to ooh and ahh, laugh and applaud, make new friends, and, of course, take loads of photos . . .
Finally, the occasional crack of thunder and whip of lightening gave way to a downpour. Just like that, cars stopped and owners jumped out to put up rooftops; spectators squeeled and ran for cover. Even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirits; after all, there’s something miraculous about fresh, cool rain after days of dry heat . . .
So it was, Saturday ended with a perfect double rainbow–the most beautiful I’ve seen in a long time.
Needless to say, I hope you’re emerging from an equally delightful weekend. May it be just what you need to hit the week running!
