New addition

Don't worry, it's not a cat or another sewing machine.

It's just a little something to make life more pleasant. We sit out front nearly every evening, when the sun is at the back of the house, but there are plenty of mornings when I would like to take my coffee in a book out there after Mario leaves for work, or even have breakfast with him there on the weekends. And if it's hot and sunny, I can't get him to like that much of the Great Outdoors.

Enter my new umbrella and stand, courtesy of Amazon's evil empire. I had an umbrella at the old house, but it was much heavier and harder to get up and down. This one has a crank and I can bring it down easily so that it doesn't tip over when we're not out there enjoying the shade.

It even matches the trim on the house. Sometimes little things make such a big difference.

How nice to have a garden where you don't have to worry about what the deer will eat! It's really pretty. I love the Huechera varieties available these days. Unfortunately the deer love them too. It's so nice to eat outside for breakfast on the weekend and dinner when it isn't raining!
