One Last Hurrah

I'm sitting at my desk writing this with bare feet, the breeze flowing in through the open windows and I'm actually feeling a bit overheated in my long sleeve t-shirt. It can mean only one thing. It's a November heat wave in Minnesota.

I wonder if we are the only region where the first snowfall can precede the last 70-degree reading? But at least when that happens there's no one to blame. This morning I was driving to Target (where else?) with the moonroof open and sun warming my skin when I thought, "You know what this gorgeous day needs? A great song on the radio!"

So I start flipping through the buttons and my finger landed on an oldies station which is playing none other than "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear." I kid you not. My brain was instantly conflicted and I quickly had to pop in a high-energy rock CD. I guess now I know what it's like to celebrate Christmas in Florida.

But all complaining aside I'm feeling energized by this last shot of warm weather. We had quite the garage project this weekend (before & after pictures coming soon) and today we pushed naptime a whole hour so that William could jump in leaf piles in the backyard with our neighbors. I figured I had to get it in this afternoon now that we turned the clocks back and the sun may very well be on it's way down when he wakes up.

Now I'm off to read my book in the warm sunshine and hoping to soak up some vitamin D we Midwesterns lack so much of this time of year. Here's hoping there's some warm sun shining down on you wherever you are.
