That’s where I’ve been all these weeks.
While it’s a clichÃ© to talk about the weather, it matters here. We’ve had cool evenings with low humidity, and we know that there can only be a few seconds, last gasps if you will, of this Spring-like weather left before Summer rolls in. For the rest of the country, Summer IS outside time, but down here? Unless you’re in a pool or creek to cool off…notsomuch.
The sticky, humid, broiling, bug infested Summers of the South force everyone indoors, since sitting motionless in the shade, or after sundown may still cause profuse sweating. Ah, 95% humidity…I know you’re coming, and I’m not wasting time. Not. One. Single. Moment.
We installed some outdoor string lights, and it has made an enormous difference in our evenings.Â We can see to eat without lighting 20 candles and I don’t have to wear a headlamp to take the dog to the bathroom.Â It’s the little things….so here’s just a few snaps of where we’ve been spending all our free time.
Cool nights make for good treehouse sleeping……
I’d say we have eaten 70% of our meals outside this past month….and cooking them out there too.
