What a relief! The cooler temperatures have restored my ability to think clearly. It could also be that I’m not sleeping on a mat in the basement or trying to work in my kid’s playroom surrounded by a minefield of lego bricks.

It feels good to get back to more normal temperatures for a couple of days. Temperatures start to rise as we head into the later part of the week. Nothing like the heat wave we just made it through but still quite warm and sunny. Don’t put those pools away yet, we still have lots of summer sunshine to enjoy.
