As this never ending winter trudges on with no end in sight, I become more and more hopeful of the warmer spring weather that is almost close enough to reach. With that, I often find myself daydreaming about what I’ll do when the snow melts and the green grass and leaves make their return.
My ideal summer day is spent relaxing and playing in the back yard with my family, tending to my vegetable garden, and barbecuing. Here’s an image from one of those sublime afternoons last summer, where I caught my older son perched atop one of the lounge chairs for a quick break in the shade. It reminds me of a cat calmly waiting to pounce on its next victim… which is often his little brother.
