Yup. That’s all I’ve got going on today. I’m not one of those people who can lay out in the sun for hours. In fact, I’m quite the opposite. I hate hate hate being too hot. Another reason I love fall and winter is the layers. If you’re too hot, you can just take off some more clothes. But in summer? Once you’re down to your bikini and the heat is still rolling in, you’ve got few options. Plus, in most cases and places, (like in a public parking lot) you can’t just strip down to your skivvies ‘cause the sun’s blazing.
I can deal with a little tanning if there is a water source nearby. I’ll get cooled off in a pool or an outdoor shower and then be able to manage lying out for the fifteen minutes or so it takes for me to dry off and get hot again. This used to drive my friends crazy.
But there is something to be said for lying out on a hot day with a cool drink, the radio turned up and the perfume-sample smell of a brand new women’s magazine mixed with spf 50 lotion. It’s in the high 70’s today in Ile de France so I’m going to soak up the last couple days of my spring break before school goes back into session Tuesday.
I hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend!!
