Rebecca just walked. A few minutes ago, she walked from the love seat to the TV — a distance of about 4.5 feet. She was confident enough to stop halfway there, turn and grin at me, and then keep going.

Since Monday, we’ve been seeing unseasonably cool temperatures, even setting record lows at night. Though it’s been 90°F or higher in the afternoons, it still feels cool and breezy after the searing summer heat wave.
