It’s summer…..school’s out! And normally where I live, that means unbearable heat (well, unbearable to me, I don’t tolerate heat well at all!)……God had REALLY blessed our area lately with some beautiful weather! The weekend after Mother’s Day we were in the 100s and I was worried that they were here to stay…..then later that very same week our daytime high temps were in the 70s. Since then we’ve been in the 70s and low 80s….THAT I can handle! To me, and my body, those are perfect summer time temps 🙂 I do know that these wonderful temps won’t last, but it is SO nice to not have to run the a/c for this first week of June 🙂 I can’t wait to see the savings on our electric bill compared to last year 🙂 Wooo hooo!
The other woo hooo about the cooler temps? And no more school? I’ve been able to spend time during the day outside working on trimming trees and bushes and getting the backyard ready for some summertime entertaining! D and I have been working this past couple of weeks to get our backyard beautiful again so that we will enjoy being out there and invite friends over this summer. A couple of weeks ago we bought a table and chairs for our patio area. We have added some solar walkway lighting for ambiance around our patio area (would LOVE to gradually add some solar tiki torch lights for the recessed patio area). We bought some really cute summertime dishes to use outside so that I’m not uptight about my regular dishes going outside for outdoor dining, and are working on establishing our “outdoor kitchen”. Once it is all completed, I will post pictures for you all. But in the meantime, I’m VERY MUCH enjoying working outside again while it’s cool enough to still be outside! We’ve also been eating dinner outside most nights, which is SOOOOOO nice! And the kids are playing croquet a lot…fun!!!
Wooo hoooo for cooler weather! 🙂
