Finally, finally, FINALLY, this weekend was absolutely gorgeous, weather-wise. The snow is (nearly) gone – only one teeny patch remains. Jeff spent a day cleaning up the sticks and leaves left over from late fall. Owen played outside pretty much all day yesterday. I spent three hours running in ONE layer of clothing. (Shocking!)
And even got to open up windows and air out the house yesterday afternoon.
This weather has me looking ahead to summer and craving an outdoor room of some kind, where we can sit and have a drink and really relax at night when the weather’s good.
Problem is, we don’t really HAVE outdoor space created. Yet, anyway.
We have a side deck which really isn’t great for what we want to do with it – it’s narrow and uncovered and on the sunny side of the house.
We have space to create a patio in the back, but it will cost us time and money.
But I think it’s really important to carve out relaxation space, something that will allow us to take advantage of the nice weather. (You know, when we have it.) I really want something to help incent us to stay home, relax, host, and be outside.
So I think we’re going to move forward and build a patio.
What are the ways you create space for relaxing at home?
