It’s not much but that’s my little patio. The weather is finally starting to get nicer–at least on a more consistent basis. I love having that little (teeny tiny) bit of space outside, but really didn’t think I’d use it; that is, until David suggested getting some chairs to put out there. Target had an excellent array of patio furniture and this ‘lil set was on sale–$80 for the lot of it! Chairs here and side table here.
Three days later and I’m obsessed with it. Some days, if I’m working from home, I don’t actually get outside until I leave for lunchtime yoga, so having a cup of ginger tea (I am not a coffee drinker) and reading the news (or, ya know, lifestyle blogs) for 10-15 minutes is soooo nice. Then, before dinner, swap the tea for for wine and the news for some David Sedaris essays, and it’s the same scene.
I never thought much about outdoor space, but now I’m really jealous of anyone (particularly anyone who lives in a city) with a yard or, better yet, a roof deck of their very own!
Also, after weeks of putting birdseed on the patio–a bird finally landed on it yesterday! He enjoyed a little snack….until Burrito noticed and pounced thus causing the bird to flee. She went nuts and has an even keener interest in watching the patio like, well, a hawk.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll eat my lunch on the patio today. Happy Friday!
