This is not a drill

Summer has come to Vancouver.

Got my summer clothes out. Yes, I am pale. Thanks for noticing.

The mountains are nice, but you can walk to the beach in ten minutes.

Of course as I lounge about, basking in the sun, I know the truth. It will be raining again next week and I will invariably be scowling at my umbrella like a unwanted child. In the meantime, I have some very pretty new dresses and a rather fetching hat. I like hats.
