Cool Mornings and Coffee on the Deck

The weather on Saturday morning was amazing! We finally got a morning where the humidity wasn’t so thick you felt like you were chewing the air.

While I was gone to the American Evaluation Association’s Summer Institute conference earlier this week, the Hubs built a platform over part of the box garden I’d abandoned last year (which had turned to a box of weeds at the end of our deck this year…). Since I’d gotten home he’d been insisting on sitting outside to take in the view from his newly built addition. I was so relieved that Saturday morning wasn’t as humid as past days so we could finally utilize our “new” outdoor space!

Here’s the Hubs sitting on the platform with Charlotte dog behind us on the deck enjoying our break from the heat on Saturday!

The Hubs told me had built a surprise while I was away. I was a little weary, but when I got home I started looking around wondering what it might be. When I went outside I immediately noticed he’d moved our deck chairs which led me to see the platform! Then I noticed that our plastic side table had been repainted pink which made me laugh. I asked Jeremy why he’d painted it and he said “I saw the color and knew you’d like it!” 🙂 I do like that shade (and I do prefer everything be pink…!).


The pups really appreciated that we were all outside together 🙂

I hope you all had a great weekend!
