Good Thing #5: These Perfect Days
We have a saying in Maine: If you don't like the weather, wait a minute. It's true. I grew up with it so I don't notice it as much, but when I was living in LA I realized we can get more of a range of weather conditions in a single day than LA gets in half a year. Usually we like it that way! If the weather was more consistently pleasant, more people would move here, and then we'd have all the problems of a place like LA. But every once in a while, we get these days that are absolutely perfect. Today is one of those days. It's sunny, but it's still cool enough not to mind it, but warm enough to be able to leave the house without putting on anything extra. There's a breeze keeping the air fresh and blowing the mosquitos and black flies away. We don't get many days like this around here, and it's always a special treat when we do.
