… the living is easy. We live in a lake community and as I rounded the bend to our street after work today, I saw the first rowboats on the lake … Spring is definitely here.
Weather is warm enough to open the windows in the car and blast the radio. You know, like you did when you were 17 and your biggest decisions were which movie to see on the weekend? Blasting today was I Don’t Want to Be by Gavin DeGraw. I LOVE that song, and am really liking his new song, Chariot.
Anyways, on with the food-talk … had our first outdoor meal tonight and fired up the grill. Just a simple meal of grilled chicken with roasted asparagus, but quite enjoyable. It’s the perfect temperature of cool, but not being so cool you need a sweater and warm, but not warm enough that you are sweating. You know … perfect.
