Well, so far there has been no sitting outside reading, reading, reading, as was my intent, but, I did read while taking a lavender bubble bath today, which makes up for some of it. And Steve and I made a fire last night in our outdoor stove and had S'mores - so very good. It's been a bit cool and windy, but I did get out to take some pictures in front. I also wanted to let you know that my friend Sophie (the one who sent me a wonderful care package from England) did start a blog a couple of days ago - yay Sophie! She can be found here at Sophie Honeysuckle.
Steve and I sit here quite a lot, rocking, reading, having a hot or cold beverage (depending on the weather). I really do enjoy it, and we wave and say hi to the passersby.
The jutting out thing is the umbrella of the table - couldn't be helped as Steve has strategically placed the table so that twinkle lights can go inside the umbrella, and power cord fits down in between patio stone slates and are hidden beneath dirt so that it appears to be a total mystery as to how the twinkle lights are powered. Sneaky. Anyway, that is why the umbrellas is where it is. The little stone path you see leads up a hill into the bid of woods we have. I like that it looks like it is going somewhere, but you're not quite sure where.
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
