In keeping with last week's theme of outdoor seating areas around the property, 2nd Man and were surfing and found this. While the smooth gravel area is probably not practical (at least until we are there full time to take care of it) there is no reason we couldn't put two benches facing each other like this with a 'coffee table' in between somewhere on the property. We like the idea of sitting and facing each other or guests and relaxing for a bit. No cushions to worry about with this set up, ha. We haven't purchased any outdoor furniture yet, that we had been waiting on until the time is right and we feel this year, the time is right to start on that part of things.
Sorry for my absence the last few days, I had the post up and ready to go Monday morning but then we lost our Uverse again. I could have gone downstairs but on top of everything else, I started feeling the beginnings of a cold. I was actually off work yesterday and feeling a bit better today. This weekend might have to be a rest weekend. Feeling better can quickly be undone by doing too much...if that makes sense. I'll go back and catch up on comments as well, even if we can't reply right away, they are read (and enjoyed) every day. Keep 'em coming.
