Hello Patio

We are so lucky that in Arizona so much of our time is spent outdoors!  There are really only a couple of months out of the year when you want to stay inside all of the time — and even still, I am writing to you outside with cool morning air this AM!  It’s pretty awesome…

There is a big backyard at this house, of course, with a lot of fun seating areas.  But there was sort of this forgotten-about patio on the side of the house that got spruced up this weekend.  I’ve been sitting out here for the last two mornings just as the sun is rising — pretty magical.  The desert is so quiet but so loud at the same time!

This patio is right off the dining room…

See?  I asked my mom-in-law where the patio furniture was from and she said just one of those patio furniture stores, lol.  They definitely took the buy-once-and-buy-well approach with their furniture but I am pretty sure they’ve had everything for many many years.  We’re getting new cushions…these are a bit dry-rotted.

 I really admire the good care that my father-in-law takes of all of his plants.  Maybe someday I will write a post showing you all of the pretty greenery outdoors.  When we have our own space, we’ll definitely need him to help us!  Everything thrives that he plants.

 Of course the best part of this patio is the view.  Houses in this neighborhood are far away from each other, and there is plenty of dense desert in between.  It’s a very special place!
