Summer is off to a sweltering start! Thankfully when it gets hot outside, our gloomy, dark apartment stays cool. Since I've started working from home, our cool apartment has saved my sanity. I do miss working in an office with huge windows overlooking Lake Washington and air conditioning to keep the place cool, but I'll certainly take a cool workspace with no views over a stuffy one with lots of windows. Who knows, maybe soon I'll even manage to start taking walks in the chilly hours before my work day begins. I keep talking about it, but the coziness of my bed is almost impossible to escape - especially when there's a cat around to snuggle my face!
For the weekend, Andy and I headed to Whidbey Island to celebrate an early 4th of July. This year was extra special, since Andy's sister and her family were up for a visit, and we were able to spend the weekend at the cabin with them for the first time since they moved to California. We had a marvelous weekend, soaking up the sunshine, eating lots of good food, and several trips out in the boat to catch crab. I'm not sure if there's anything better than a dinner of fresh crab and cold white wine, especially when paired with such a beautiful view of Puget Sound!
