Alley likes to sit right there between the dining and living rooms so she can keep an eye on everything.
The weather's been so nice lately. It makes me want to start summer right now. Piles of books, lazy mornings in the backyard and breezy evenings cooking out. Of course, by the time summer really gets here, there will be humidity and stickiness and all that ridiculous heat. I won't want to hang out in the backyard. I'll never want to go out at all. The books, however, are welcome anytime.
