2019 Life Logs, Day 184: Great Beach Day and More Soccer
Date: Wednesday, July 3, 2019
Weather: Sunny and Hot; High 88, Low 63 degrees F
Location: At Home in the Cottage, East Falmouth, MA
The weather these days is like a yo-yo. The temperature just goes up and down with one day warm, the next cool, the next hot, then back to cool. Yesterday morning was downright chilly but this morning was hot making it a great beach day and a great day for swim lessons. But even with the great weather, Jonah usually tires of being at the beach by noon, so we headed home. The boys did some chores and then it was time to watch the second semi-final World Cup soccer game. Today’s match was between Sweden and the Netherlands. The regular game ended in a 0-0 tie, but in overtime, the Dutch team was able to score and they will play the US Women’s National Team in the final game on Sunday. As we watched the game, Ollie came up with the idea of sending a text message to momma to see if she would like to go to the beach with him when she got home from work. The morning at the beach was just not enough for him. Heather texted back that she was all in for a late afternoon at the beach and suggested that the whole family go and have a picnic dinner on the beach. Unfortunately, since the soccer game went into overtime, the departure time was a little delayed, but I do hope they got to the beach in time to still enjoy the lingering warmth of the day. I decided against going along on this trip and came home to just sit back and relax. Tomorrow is the Fourth of July and none of us has a specific plan. But I am certain that one will develop. I am hoping to head downtown first thing to go to the first day of the Falmouth Public Library annual book sale. It opens just as the downtown Fourth of July parade begins, so there will be plenty of people. But then there are always lots of people at any Cape Cod summer holiday weekend event. Later on in our day, I think there will be cook-out at the Goldstones, and then we will all head to the beach to watch the fireworks. At least, that’s our usual agenda for the Fourth of July.
