Dear N,
If only you had been here only yesterday you wouldn't believe what a relief this 27 degrees is today and it's not even officially summer yet! I was even able to take a hot shower today instead of a cold one, which was a nice change.
The balcony garden is coming along. It's nice to walk out of the kitchen and be able to pick fresh basil and mint for a salad. We had tuna, garbanzo beans and a mess of fresh herbs with some toasted pita bread for dinner, yum!
Do the chairs look familiar?

And here are the boots that I blogged about a few weeks ago. They are now sitting in the linen bag that they came with, awaiting the cooler weather of fall. I can't wait to wear them but I am definitely enjoying the weather that we're having now. The boots and the fall can wait for now.
