Summer Break

My, oh my. I am officially on vacation. It took me some time to get rid of my waking-up-at-5 AM body clock. Ugh. I'm happy to say that I am now sleeping in until 7:30 AM.

G & I started off my summer break in a big way by seeing Iron Man on its opening day. What a fantastic way to welcome the blockbuster season. Last summer, almost every big summer film was a big disappointment. Iron Man was pure fun. Robert Downey Jr. is perfect as flawed gazillionaire Tony Stark. And if you see the film, stay through closing credits!

G & I hosted his sister and bro-in-law for a weekend in Ann Arbor. We had a blast and mostly just caught up while we ate and drank. Oh, and we broke out the board games. Yes, we are party animals.

The leaves are finally back on the trees and my garden is in full bloom. But spring just can't seem to fully win yet. Last night we had a frost warning and had to protect our herbs. Jeez, enough already.
