They only had one size left, so it might be a teenie bit imperfect. And of course none of us can actually feel perfect while wearing a swim suit anyway. But as far as swim suits go, I think I love it. Saw it on my sister in law Brooke and thought, have to have that. Then saw it on Lindsay's blog... on Lindsay. It helps that Lindsay's legs are as long as I am... but let's hope it works on me. I love the print, love the colors, love the bandeau style top, wish it weren't QUITE so crazy long... but since Summer's been here for... well MONTHS out here in the desert, it's about time I had my new suit. Happy Summer!
Speaking of summer... We have just entered the season of possible rain storms. As in, the 4 we might get in the year will most likely happen within the next couple of months. Monsoon season or something, flash flood warnings and everything (since our roads and grounds aren't built to handle water.) And the first hit last night!!!!!!!! It was AMAZING. The morning boasted a few scattered clouds.... sounds typical to most of you. It was incredible. I actually opened my N/E facing blinds all the way (like not only tilted up so the sun hits the ceiling in my usual fashion) before 11 am. The day was humid, a phenomenon out here. Still well over a hundred, it was incredibly sweaty and muggy, but occasionally you'd get a humid breeze and I could almost imagine being in Hawaii. Nice change... in spite of the matted hair.
But it never occurred to me that it might actually rain. It's like I've forgotten that's a weather possibility. Until we were minding our own business, replaying a performance on So You Think You Can Dance at like 10 pm, and heard thunder. Pause the DVR, yup, that's thunder. We both frantically scurry around the house trying to figure out how to get a good look at the magic moisture. Go to open sliding door, WAIT the new security system, go punch in the code or we'll have to chat with the monitoring service again, they'll think we're idiots! I'll turn off the lights so we can get a better look... how 'bout the front door.... I think we might have some sort of cover out there, like an entry-way, not sure, never needed it....
And then we opened the front door to the steamy, breezy warm air outside, shut it behind us (it feels good, but you don't just let your 78 degree air escape your house out here) and stood on the porch for 15 minutes or so, like a couple of kids who've never seen the rain. It was amazing. Thunder, lightning, downpours. We saw some neighbors with their jaws dropped in their garage. So we're not crazy.
The good news, it wasn't all a dream. My kitchen blinds are fully drawn this morning and the sky is still a hazy grey. It's going to be a good day.
