Over the past few weeks I've pressure washed our decks and painted railings; put together a table and planted flowerpots and strung lights. Some of you would be surprised to know this is all for a couple of good months of summer weather, if we're lucky. We spend a little more of the year outside than just those good months, but most of you wouldn't, necessarily.
We are ready and waiting for this holiday weekend and our local, unofficial start to summer. Happy July 1!
