Summer Weekend

As those local to this blog know, summer in Minnesota has been a bit...un-summerlike this year. As in, not really very warm. This has made Patrick happy, but left me feeling cheated.

So I was happy to get this summer weekend off on the right foot with warm weather, and by mailing my summer mix cd to my cd group. Because I am old, it's heavy on the 80s, but I think it says "summer" exactly right:

Too Darn Hot Erasure
Things Can Only Get Better Howard Jones
I Love You Goodbye Thomas Dolby
Tainted Love Soft Cell
Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) Eurythmics
I Would Die 4 U Prince
Only You Yaz
Life During Wartime Talking Heads
Doors Of Your Heart English Beat
China Girl David Bowie
Body Talk The Wallets
A Change Would Do You Good Sheryl Crow
La La Love You Pixies
Seasons Of The Hurricane Juliet Turner
Summer Dress Shawn Colvin
Ice Cream Sarah McLachlan
Summer's Cauldron XTC
Vaquinha Mansa Cesaria Evora
Hole In The Bucket Spearhead

Yesterday, we got to go to a delicious clambake that our friends Kate and Ryan (and daughter Sasha) threw. Great food, and fun to meet a lot of new people as well as see friends.

Today we threw a small pool party, which was incredibly enjoyable. My amazingly hostess-skilled friend Rebecca made great margaritas, and everyone enjoyed hanging out in the pool and being together.

So, uh, yeah, only the second half of August and finally feels summery. Where are the cicadas and my shortie pink-striked pjs with the kitty on them?
