al fresco

We had supper on a patio the other evening.

It's been an exceptionally warm week, and our sensibly-planned, healthy, indoor dinner was just not gonna cut it. We didn't want to make it. And we definitely didn't want to eat it. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and WHY ON EARTH would we eat at TV trays inside a dusty house that is halfway through an unplanned renovation ... AGAIN???!!!

So we put our jackets on, headed down to the water and relaxed at a patio table in the sunshine, where plates of delicious food magically appeared in front of us. When the sun went down we meandered back home, where I wandered around my gardens, anticipating the activity of the next few months.

Aaahhhhhhh.

Spring is here.
