Everything smells so fresh and is that wonderful spring green. I don't use the picnic table much except to sit down a few minutes at. Since my husband died, I don't get much company for meals. Actually my dog Rocky thinks it's a great vantage point as he stands on top of the table. The ice cream set we got a long time ago when we had an antique shop. I don't remember if I got it at an auction or an estate sale but it's a winner! I gave it to my parents as a gift one Christmas for their screened in porch. I was just thinking back about having suppers out there at their house years ago on this table and chairs. When they passed away, I got the set back. I do use it quite a bit even if it's just me having a cup of coffee in the summer. My husband's best friend, Steve, built the low deck for us. I've got to buy some new cushions this year for a couple other outside chairs I have. They've really gone up in price this year. They are about $30. each even at Walmart!
I'm a retired RN, living in a century home on 1 sq. acre. My wish was to someday have a horse property so I wouldn't have to board my horses. However, I've found the most wonderful full care boarding barn at Winfield Farm and Forge in Grafton. Hoping never to move! I have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I have 1 rescued English Pointer and 4 rescued barn cats. And chickens!! (7 of them at the moment.) My daughter says I live in my own little bubble. Maybe that's true but I like it in here. I have a few good friends, my family, my animals and all you nice people in the blogosphere!
