Make Lemonade

13 x 18 cm
According to an article in the newspaper, we didn't have summer this year.  Officially, a summer day is 25° C.  We only reached 24°C.  So far. 
One gray and rainy day we were walking through the city and someone near us said, "There is no bad weather, only bad moods."  (Translated).  It fits with the saying, "If life hands you a lemon, make lemonade."  Remember to add sugar. :-)
