100 Words; First Grilling

It was a truly delicious day; that kind of turquoise blue sky and little breeze. The sun was wonderful, bordering upon warm, on my face. Perfect. Well, as perfect as it can get without getting boring.

We trekked to some ruins in the seductive sunlight. My vest has been my top layer for the last three days. It began to feel almost hot out.

No, it's not shorts and sandals weather...yet. However, we uncovered the grill and had steak and roasted peppers. Beer and wine chilled in the snowbank but a few feet away.

This is how we roll...

    1. I guess I don't think of it as relaxing as much as just living ;).

    1. I love and hate this time of year; warmer and still snow, but the mud makes everything so sloppy.

  4. In Alaska they call this time of year 'breakup' instead of Spring. Here in MT yesterday was warm, nearly got to 50. This morning it's snowing again. I should have grilled yesterday too.

    1. It was lovely. Getting on the time of year to make sure the propane cylinder is full. Although, will all the snow, come runoff, I think I'll be making gumbo, for we shall be down on the bayou.
