Perfect Days

Thursday, July 7, 2011
In Minnesota, we don't spend too much time praising the weather. It's either too hot or too cold. Too dark or too buggy; just always, too something. I think we all feel our grumbling keeps us grounded. Heaven forbid we become one of those sad saps who smile at everything!

But sometimes even the most cynical of cynics have to admit that what's going on outside their window is pretty nice.

This "weekend," the Tipsy Crafters arrived for a Northwoods crafting retreat and were greeted by blue skies and temps in the mid-70s. Very little crafting has been done. And why would you devote any time to crafting when there's a big ol' lake to splash around in, air mattresses to convert into floating rafts, islands to swim out to, and ducklings to exclaim over.Crafting can wait until the evening hours, when the sun starts to slowly dip into the far horizon and the warm glow of sunburn is creeping into all of our faces.  

Like we like to say around these parts, "You couldn't have ordered better weather than this."

  1. Northern Minnesota has the best summer weather. Not too hot, and not too cold.

  3. I just finished Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, and part of it is set in MN. At one point one of the characters tells her son that the major advantage of having grown up in MN is that no matter where else he lives the weather will always be fabulous in comparison : )
