Today is beautiful and it is August. Now I am not saying it was a beautiful day for August. I am saying that no matter what month it is, today was beautiful. What is more amazing is it took place in one of the hottest, highest humidity months Iowa has. In fact it’s during the notoriously bad Iowa State Fair time. I took advantage of the perfect temperate and sunny sky by eating lunch outside. Then I came home and made Jeff put pants on, so we could picnic in the park. I guess he wouldn't have to put pants on, but when eating hot food it is generally advisable.
