Sunny Day

Yesterday was quite a stormy 4th of July in the Denver metro area. We didn't even bother driving anywhere to watch fireworks, because our weather consisted of: clouds, wind, pouring rain, lightning, and hail. Yes... I said hail. Never in my life have I seen so much hail and crazy weather since moving to Colorado four years ago! I spotted my first "twister" in Colorado, and I have a feeling it's only the beginning. Every time there are dark clouds near, I assume there must be a tornado forming. (It's silly, I know!) Nate thinks it's entertaining how worried I get when stormy clouds loom in the distance. But seriously... I never experienced so much "odd" weather growing up in Michigan!

(Those are hail stones... some of them were up to about 0.5" diameter)

Today, however, is lovely outside! So Nate and I just might take advantage of it with a little golfing. I am not sure you can call what I do golfing though. Golf is not a good sport for anyone who is extremely tough on themselves. Nate typically brushes things off much easier than I do, so it doesn't bother him much (as bad as it bothers me) when he shanks a shot or puts a giant divot into the tee box area! (Not that he does that very often... it's usually me doing the above mentioned things) My first time "golfing", with my own clubs and everything, was last summer, so I shouldn't be too hard on myself.... but that's what I do. My main focus today should probably be keeping my cool, instead of driving a 200 yard shot. For the "love of golf!", I really hope that at the end of the day my disposition is as sunny as the weather outside.

** Doesn't this picture sort of make you want to love golfing? **

If anyone has tips on how to be a better golfer, then feel free to share them! :)
