It was a perfect summer’s day here yesterday. The temperature was in the 70s and there was a gentle breeze blowing throughout the day. We finally took time to relax after a couple of really busy weeks. We both have a long list of things we need to do, but we decided to let them slide.
We spent most of the morning at our camp catching up with a string of friends and neighbours. Most of the chatter was about birthday celebrations and recent travels. In the afternoon Dan took a long nap on the sofa. I pottered around in the basement — putting things in order after work visits from plumbers and HVAC guys.
In the evening we made a plan to walk through the addition and identify electrical outlet and lighting needs. We didn’t do much of that. We got waylaid. Realizing what a nice evening it was, we decided to have a drink outside.
As previously mentioned, our contractor keeps some straw on hand to spread around the construction site. It keeps the mud under control. I know from experience a bale makes a good seat… so, I grabbed one and positioned it to sit on.
I pulled up the bale of straw to the edge of the potting shed doorway and sat down with my gin and tonic.
