Between the cool, rainy days and the humid, 85 degree (and higher) days, falls DC’s one perfect week of spring. 70s, sunny, just a light breeze (if any). That week was this week, and I tried to make the most of it:
Monday: Okay, I didn’t really get to enjoy being outside on Monday, but I did go to a Body Pump class at the gym, in an effort to get into shape for the upcoming summer months of bare legs and tank tops.
Tuesday: Adam and I met our friend Nick (hi, Nick!) at a local park with our boxing gloves for some sparring. Fresh air and exercise.
Wednesday: We met friends for dinner al fresco, then Adam and I enjoyed the calm, cool night walking the 2+ miles home, stopping for some frozen yogurt.
Thursday: Although we didn’t have any outdoor activities planned, we decided to make the most of the perfect week and after dinner walked about a mile to the grocery store to pick up some sweet-smelling strawberries for dessert.
Today, it was back to grey and drizzly, and the forecast for the next 8 or so days shows more of the same. I’m sure after that passes, we’ll jump right into DC’s oppressive summer. But it was nice while it lasted.
