Bring on the heat!

Today after Shabbat service I went down to the beach to do a little reading.  It is sunny outside, but still a bit chilly (only 18° C…64° F) I wore pants, a t-shirt and a sweatshirt with flip-flops.  As I was sitting there reading, I looked around me and saw all sorts of CRAZY people in bikini’s and swimsuits.  There were even some in the water!!!

There I was all bundled up in my blanket, not even very warm to tell the truth, and people were wearing practically nothing!  I remembered back to when I was younger, growing up in Michigan, when I actually was one of those CRAZY people.  It would hit the 60’s and we’d be laying out, trying to get some sun.  Man, how times have changed.  I guess living in tropical and desert areas for the past 8 years has thinned my blood beyond recognition.  I barely see that Michigan girl at all…she is practically non-existent.  If I’m gonna get in the water, or be laying out now it needs to AT LEAST  be in the 80’s, 90’s preferably.  I’m ready for the warmer weather….bring on the heat!

    i don’t want to cause you concern…. but it’s (wanting warm weather/being immune to ‘cold’) gonna get a lot worse as you continue growing ‘older’.

    Take it from one who’s way ‘ahead’ of you in that regard! 😉

    You may have the possibility to reverse it and become one of those ‘CRAZY’S’ again – if you practice it somewhat on a regular basis…

    Should you feel the ‘need’ that is 😉

    Crazy thing here in the mountains of Oregon is that if it his 50°, everyone is in shorts and flips and the motorcycles are out in full force!

    Yeah – I’ve been in MN for 8 years now … you’d think I’d be used to the cold, but … only somewhat. Laying out in 60 degree weather?!?!?!?! I’m not there. I’m with you. 80s or 90s.
