I went out to the deck, after a long stressful week, with a new magazine to wait for Lee to come home from work. All of the sudden I realize it's the first evening that it's warm enough to actually sit out and relax! I jumped up and checked the fridge to see what we had for an appetizer. Just a little bit of cheese, some dried cherries and crackers. Yes! The bottle of wine we chilled a few months ago is still waiting for us.
No planning, no elaborate prep, but 15 minutes later I decided to cut a few hosta leaves and add a centerpiece to the table because it looked so nice. As I was cutting the leaves Lee pulled up. Perfect timing!
We even got our daily exercise in on our walk to Giuseppi's to pick up a dinner to share. Lit a fire, invited the neighbors over and stayed outside till 11pm eating chocolates, drinking wine, and catching up with friends.
