Summer weather seems to have finally normalized. Usually I consider August to be the too hot for my liking month, but after June and July it seems that either I have finally acclimated a bit, or that weather in the low 80s is just better than the high 90s.
Friday night Jeff and I sat on the porch and played cribbage with beverages. He traveled for work the last two weeks, and we were at a wedding in Wisconsin last weekend so it felt really good to have a weekend where nothing “had” to be done, and instead we got to move at our own pace.
I like people and entertaining and maintaining friendships so there are people I feel like I need to see and hang out with more often. But I also know that my stress level cannot handle always going going going. Even when it is fun events, I get worn out.
Saturday we slept in, played a little tennis, and then went to the Edina pool. I used to go there all the time as a kid, and we were certainly the only two adults there without a kid in attendance, but it still felt good to go and relax. Then we went home, cleaned up for church, and grilled brats outside.
I didn’t pull out my computer last night to type this up, so I’m getting to it now on Sunday morning with a cup of coffee, and some Pioneer Woman on tv. Next up is probably a bike ride, a trip to look at the house being built, maybe a little more tennis before grilling steaks for dinner.
How do you like to relax?
