heat wave

When we first got to Cambridge I thought the weather was pretty great. Cooler at night and pretty mild during the day.

That all changed yesterday when the heat hit, and I'm not going to admit how few items of clothing I've been wearing in our house. Our need for a blender had become dire. I've been pinning summertime recipes all morning. All I want to do right now is drink smoothies and eat popsicles all day long. And stare at beautiful images like this one by Ekaterina Koroleva. Look for the one called "Pool" on her site.
