The story around here is that SUMMER has arrived in Minnesota. School is over for a few months and graduation parties were all the rage around here over the weekend. My screens have been removed from the shelf in my garage, washed and put into wide open windows.
We're expecting HOT weather this week with highs in the 90's, which means that I'm having an argument in my head about open windows vs. air conditioning. I'm not a fan of air conditioning, partly because I love having my windows open so that I can enjoy the fresh air and partly because I spend my work days in a chilly office. By the time I leave work I'm ready for some heat, but I also really like sleeping and that's not always easy when it's hot in the house.
Over the weekend I tried on my swimsuits, never a fun thing to do. I decided that it was time to get a few new options and time for a few of my suits to go in the trash. I've completely switched out my closet, with sweaters and long sleeved shirts moving into the closet in the spare bedroom and lightweight summer clothes moving into my bedroom closet.
I'm on the hunt for some patio furniture including a table & chairs and some lounge chairs. There are lots of options and decision making doesn't come easy for me, so right now the patio is empty except for pots of flowers and a few containers tomatoes, basil and peppers. I'm bound and determined to have a few patio parties this summer, so I'm going to have to make furniture decisions soon.
HELLO SUMMER! Welcome back . . . oh how I've missed you.
