how was your week-end??
We actually had 2 days with
wait for it....
Yeah ~ I was surprised too considering they were predicting it
for Sunday ~ but nada ~ and for that my friends
I am thankful!
Friday night after work I went to the market
then I went and bought a patio set
it is a set!
I think I am a grown up now as we have graduated
from all the mismatched and hand me down lawn furniture
that has adorned our various decks throughout the past 12 years
we have been together
I did not buy one with a big honking table
because realistically ~ it is just the 2 of us
most of the time
and a ginormous table would take up the entire deck
plus Miss Molly's rope would get wrapped up in it
I think she looks purty and I bought the umbrella too as we
get the afternoon sun and in the summertime there are
days where you really cannot sit out there.
So after we got it all set up
I said ~ we need something where the other 2 chairs
I ran in and pulled out my project binder and found something I
had seen and saved last year
it was a little side table made from terra cotta pots
so Saturday I was off to the garden center and
after securing it with a nut, 2 washers and a bolt
I think it's cute and looks perfect
between my 2 chairs.
So after weeding and weeding
and planting some more perrenials
we threw a chicken on the bbq
have you ever had beer can chicken??
it is to die for ~ a fav in our house for sure
the little holder costs about $5.00 at Wal-Mart
and I try to cook it this way about twice a month
when the weather is nice.
So after nursing a sore back Sat. night
we kicked back and watched a movie
then Sunday was a day to do little things
and I actually took some time with my book
on the deck.
I am reading Water for Elephants right now
and I am really enjoying it
I bought this one today
the cover intrigued me and I cannot wait to start it
I also made this on Sunday
image the recipe found here
thank you Carrie ~ you are evil
but I love you!!
So I will leave you with one last look at my
perfect little side table
using 2 ~ 12 inch pots
1 ~ 12" saucer
1 nut ~ 2 washers and 1 bolt
you can also paint them and do fancy smansy things in
the saucer ~ but I like it au naturel!
