Why is it still cold?

Listen up, Mother Nature -- we're nearly into June here and it's still cold in my part of the world.

We've got Memorial Day coming up, and while I know it's traditional for it to be rainy and cold and miserable, couldn't we for ONCE see the sun?

One of my best friends lives on the lake and it would be so nice to go out on their boat with a picnic. Instead, we'll probably sit in her dining room and eat our fried chicken and potato salad.

Oh well, I'll be with my two best girlfriends and their significant others and we'll have fun anyway . . . but it would be so much nicer to have that fun while wearing a sundress than bundled up in sweats.

Hopefully there'll be other sunny weekends where we can haul out the cooler, the grill, and the six of us for a leisurely boat ride and picnic. But right now, the 4th of July seems a million miles away.
