Might as well be summer in Nashville

 It’s barely spring and we’re already acting like it’s summer at the Los Rodriguez mansion. Ever since Javier bought his grill the weather has been consistently in the 80s and I think today it got all the way to 91. Does anyone remember back in February when I mentioned I might be a little bummed if it winds up 100 degrees in March? I was kind of joking about it getting that warm so early, and yet here we are! Still, the weather has been a welcome change (not that it’s really a big change from what it was in “winter”) because now we are spending about 70% of our waking hours at home on the porch. Morning coffee on the porch, afternoon reading and STATA sessions on the porch, dinner on the porch, evening work time on the porch, etc. It’s pretty perfect and we’re taking full advantage of our little bug-free outdoor space! Es apenas primavera y ya estamos haciendo como si fuera verano en la mansion Rodriguez. Desde que Javier compro su parrilla, el tiempo ha estado constantemente mas o menos en los 25 grados y hoy creo que subio hasta los 30. Alguien se acuerda cuando en Febrero dije que me iba a poner triste si habian 35 grados en Marzo? Yo lo dije como broma, pero parece que va a suceder! Aun asi el tiempo ha sido un cambio bienvenido (aunque el invierno casi no existio) porque ahora pasamos casi el 70% del tiempo en nuestro porch. El café de la mana en el porch, leer y estudiar estadistica en el porch, cena en el porch, tareas en el porch, etc.. Es perfecto y hemos aprovechado al maximo nuestro espacio libre de bichos afuera!

On Sunday night my parents came over for dinner and we had a classic McClure-Rodríguez summer meal: ceviche from La Hacienda! Of course we can’t miss a beat in the college basketball world (and this goes especially for my gma and dad – they REALLY don’t want to miss anything!) so we ate it on the porch with the window open so we could see / hear the games from outside. Javier did this all the time in the fall when the Titans were on – we’d sit on the porch and he’d turn on the Titans and watch from outside. It was a beautiful evening so of course I had to get some photos – I love our little porch and the lights! So much for “Christmas” lights – I’m glad we decided to be “that house” on the street and keep them up. El domingo en la noche mis papas vinieron a tuvimos una cena de verano clasica de los McClure-Rodriguez: ceviche de La Hacienda! Obvio que no podiamos perdernos los partidos del torneo de la NCAA (especialmente mi papa y abuela – en verdad no se quieren perder nada!) asi que comimos en el porch con las ventana abierta para poder ver los juegos en la tele adentro. Javier hizo eso todos el otono cuando los Titanes tenian partidos – nos sentabamos en el porch y el prendia la tele para ver desde el porch. Fue una linda cena y obvio que saque algunas fotos – me encanta nuestro porch y las luces! Las luces de Navida….vienieron para quedarse, menos mal que decidimos ser “esa” casa que déjà las luces todo el ano instaladas.
