In case you have not been following my blog too closely here is an update:
I have been sick the past month with an acute sinus infection. I am still not 100 %. The doctor told me to rest. I am trying to do that but it is very hard for me to sit any length of time. I see things that have to be done and I have to do them! I can't help it! Well, I think I have conquered that in the past three days.
It has been so hot and humid here in good old Texas, that I have spent the afternoons sitting by the pool. We didn't get this wonderful weather in Buffalo, NY. So, I decided to make the most of it and have a snack outside.
Just a very simple snack with a Memorial Day flair! Since moving to Texas, I love sweetened tea. I paired it with fresh strawberries and cantaloupe in an old fashioned sundae dish. The candle has three fragrances: macintosh apple, aromate de vanilla and blueberries & cream. It smells heavenly!
I couldn't decide where I wanted my tray so I put it on the table and then on the footrest. I think I like it in on the footrest. What about you?
The tablecloth was made by my mother-in-law and given to me years ago. The plate was bought at HomeGoods. I bought four of them so I can use them when my daughter comes for the Fourth of July!
I thought I'd show you what I am looking at while I am eating my snack.
We have lived here since December 23, 2010, so we haven't done anything to the outside other than clean it up. We have lots of huge trees and they are always dropping something. This garden has roses in it. A few other things are growing but I haven't got a clue what they are called.
I love the lantern in a pot. I planted coleus around it! The lanterns are solar and some were not lighting at night so I decided to see how a pot with a lantern it it would look. What do you think?
I think next time, I would plant a showy flower for a more dramatic effect.
This is one of the roses....
A last look at my tablescape....
