DST and the perfect evening

This weekend's shift to Daylight Savings Time was perfectly timed to coincide with the loveliest weather we've had all season. Despite a few midday rain showers, Sunday evening turned out to be incredible. The three of us took a walk around the neighborhood and then decided to grill out in the backyard. Olivia ran around happily in the backyard, taking off more than once to the (vacant) backyard neighbor's carport, glancing around to see if we were chasing her. Exhausted and muddy, we fed her one of the first pork chops to come off of the grill, then gave her a warm bath and put her to bed. This left the two of us free to enjoy the last few minutes of daylight, eating our dinner together on the screened-in porch. The air was warm, the sunset was peaceful, the crickets were chirping. A perfect evening.

I can't wait for more of the same.

That sounds like a little slice of heaven, right there! I can't wait for warmer weather around these parts - we got more snow today. Ugh.
