outdoors

bunting
It's hot! So extremely hot. And I love it... we're staying wet and spending every moment we can outside swimming or in the shade of  huge trees.
kabobs
We're eating cold food or cooking out.

The clothesline is only filled with towels, table cloths and bathing suits... who needs clothes when it's 100 degrees? We're making the most of the season upon us. You, too?

And because you might be wondering: the oilcloth bunting up top was found here. Pin It

  2. Sounds perfect. I really wish I was back in CT and near the ocean again. 100F heat is a killer (phew).

  3. I think it's kind of interesting that here in Florida, it isn't abnormally hot. Despite that, though, we spend most of our days inside to avoid the mammoth mosquitoes!

  5. I made a similar bunting for my daughters' room. I never thought about doing it in oilcloth for outside. I like it. We are also spending long hours outside. The house is just too hot.

  6. We are too! Frequent swimming dips at the nearby creek, outside, inside, and lots and lots of fresh salads.
    This kind of weather doesn't happy very often - we must enjoy it.
    Your yard looks wonderful.

  7. Looks great.
    I love your grill. We have restrictions and can't have an open fire - maybe that's why it looks so appealing to me ;)

  8. Thanks everyone! Ella, funny you mention the grill and restrictions. We are care taking this grill for our city friends who have restrictions on open fire, themselves. My mother made those gorgeous vegetable kabobs, I really should have given her credit somewhere... sorry mom!

  9. I'm loving this summer because so far it hasn't been hot - we've been having lovely overcast weather here in Californa. I even wore a thin jacket yesterday. I'm trying to savour it as the normal hot, hot, hot is supposed to return this weekend...

  14. I just love these photos - we holidayed in New England in August last year and looking at your yard reminds me of all the gorgeous greenery and flowers everywhere. You experience quite a different summer to mine in Australia. I love it!
