Silas just discovered the sprinkler. In Colorado, we actually have to water the grass several times a week. The town water is very cold (we never use ice). But, yesterday was hot, and Silas was feeling adventurous. After he discovered how much fun running through the sprinkler could be, he was sure that Priya would want to as well. She was not as sure. So, he assisted her.
Last week, after my trip to Gunnison for groceries, when it was in the 80s and my Honda's A/C was broken, a friend and I stopped at the reservoir and jumped in the water with all our clothes on. There is something about swimming in jeans that feels wild and reckless. (I suppose not as wild as swimming without clothes.) It was the third time this summer I've jumped in the water with jeans on. The water was "warm" compared to where we normally swim in the river in Lake City.
Priya was sleeping in the car that was parked on the beach. I put a blanket over the top of the car to shade her and weighed it down with two small stones on top of the car. When we were getting back in the car, she woke up and tugged on the blanket through her window. And, POW, a rock slid down and busted the window, which was only half rolled down. Apparently we have a $0 deductible on our policy for all glass...no real harm done.
