Summers are short here on the west coast of Canada and we make the most of them. Today (Friday) Tim took a day off. He has a few yard projects he's working on, but this morning we power washed the deck and driveway. He didn't think I'd be able to hold the washer nozzle for long and he was right. But I had a few short stints at it and enjoyed watching the powerful stream of water blast the grime from the cement. Power washing sends up a lot of fine debris and I washed table chairs, plant pots, deck railing and more.
Then we put down the outdoor rugs - so nice on our feet compared to the cement - I love going barefoot. We barbecued hamburgers and ate outside, soaking in the early evening sun. If you look closely, you'll see that dinner was nothing fancy - I even put the condiments on the table in their "straight-from-the-fridge" bottles.
Summer temperatures here are pleasant, rarely too hot, with no humidity and no mosquitoes. A light jacket is usually welcome in the evening. We took a few minutes during the afternoon to have a cold drink and a snack, seated here. Ah summer - so beautiful - and lots of work. Tomorrow, I think, we'll be mowing the lawn.
