Well, real summer weather has arrived very suddenly in southern Ontario. So far, we have had some lovely, sunny weather interspersed with rain, but yesterday was the real thing. And I--dummy that I am--got caught with the proverbial sunscreen down. We had a garage sale and so we were sitting out in front of the house pretty much from 8:30 to 3 p.m. Guess who got a burn? I know, I know, chances of skin cancer, blah, blah, blah. What's done is done. My arms feel slightly tender, but aside from the redness, it's not too bad.
This morning, my red-headed son went on a school trip to an amusement park. I had him slather on the sunscreen. Older son, who's close to blond in the summer, has just been warned to do the same before he goes out this afternoon.
I suppose if I hadn't been burned, I would have forgotten about getting the boys to slather up today. Ah, mothers.
Now, on to a more bloggy topic: I've got a book by Mark Bittman and one by Michael Pollan to read. Both deal with eating real food. I guess I have my cyber-friends to thank for forcing myself to read these books...and then reviewing them here for your reading pleasure!
