In the Good Ol' Summertime...



The first official day of summer is this coming Sunday! Although many of us have been experiencing summer activities... the caledar tells us it's official on Sunday.

As I have said in the past, I am a "seasons" kind of gal. Lemonade, swimming, lazy days on the patio, cookouts, lawn games, catching fireflies, listening to the birds sweetly sing their song, sitting in my rocking chair on the front porch perusing a favorite magazine while sipping on iced tea! Ah the luxuries of summer!

Up top is a picture of my beloved Jet. Yes... we purchased new patio furniture and guess who was the first to take a seat? Yes, Jet. I think he has claimed the loveseat as his own! As a matter of fact... he's out there now lounging in the sunshine. We were still putting the furniture together - now that's a story, and he promptly staked his claim! I do believe he is enjoying the warm temps too!

With summer approaching I thought I would throw out an invite! Let's have a garden party! I would love to see pictures of your yard, your gardens, your patios! A picture tour of our summer sanctuaries! I am going to start taking my pictures today! I can't wait for you to see all the new patio furniture! I just love the set! Very comfy! So, make some lemonade and let us sit back and enjoy our own cyber garden party! Hope you will stop back to check out my tour when I get the pics up! And I hope you invite us along to your lovely home!!!

Enjoy summer my friends!

Jet looks really comfy! My backyard/front porch is totally nothing to show off, but I may find a few pics worth taking. Looking forward to yours. Donna

A garden par-tay sounds like fun! I'll be back!

I have no great pictures to share of my garden sanctuary. I do, however, have some of my husband's applesauce cake to share!

Hope all is well with you, friend. How is the housing market these days? I just had a great visit with runner mom. We had a blast. Maybe we could all get together sometime down the road.

How fun that Jet got to pick the best spot! LOVE the new furniture. I'd love to join in for a post, but I'm too busy hoping someone will buy my deck! :) haha
