Decks...Too Many Pillows...And Of Course, Books!

This is the time of year when I love to sit out on the deck and read! Kids are fishing on the pond...catching the same huge catfish over and over again but having so much fun. One of the neighbors has a small boat for the pond. It's nice to see so much activity from our deck. There are herons and ducks and sea birds! Snapping turtles and snakes, too! Yikes!

This is the side of the deck that we spend the most time on...my sweet little sectional is perfectly comfy and stays shady.




The chairs are comfy, too but they are in the sun for much of the afternoon.



Roxie loves sitting out here with me.


A sweet little princess resting on her pillow. She watches birds and ducks. Lucy hates the tent...hates it...so...we sometimes let her out...but she is slow enough to catch and she sits on one of the chairs...and naps...



This is the view to the other deck but it is freaky hot on that side...no shade at all! I have desert plants and herbs growing in big pots down there...


The problem is putting all the pillows away if it is going to rain...Den usually does it but I had to do it yesterday...one outdoor bin is not enough to hold all of the pillows so I have them stacked on the dryer. Trust me...they reach almost to the ceiling!

Loving this book about quirky lives...a quest...and a bookstore!


The girls are totally napping while I read! When they wake up...they will wander downstairs and sit by the island and wait for their lunch presentation. Then they will both wander to the back door and wait for me to prep the deck for them...pillows, kitty tent, etc...however...today looks iffy...we are supposed to get rain and storms...so...I will have to open the door at least three times while holding Roxie...and allow Lucy to step out into the rain...finally believe me...and come back in again.


Happy Wednesday!

  1. I wish we had a pond to look out on. Instead we have a pool that we haven't opened yet, in part because the tarp on top is holding rainwater and a bunch of tadpoles.

  2. Your deck looks lovely. I have a nice view from my patio but not a water view.

  3. I love the porch sectional and I want one! I have yet to put out my deck furniture because the porch needs to be washed and cleaned first. I hope to get to it in another week- so there will still be plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors. :) Your outdoor space is just lovely. Yeah!

  4. Wow, your deck and all the comfy furniture is impressive! I like how you described lunch for the kitties as a "presentation." I'll bet they get the royal treatment...LOL. Enjoy!
