February - October

I've just checked in my gratitude journal - we had our first outdoor Sunday lunch of 2011 on February 6th. We had another one today, with the table out in full sun on the lawn - in summer we hide in the shade, but of course it's back to sunshine now!

We don't think we've ever had a year where more than eight of the months were fit for eating full meals outdoors. It's really something to be grateful for...

How wonderful. I remember having lunch outside in March in Brittany when we bought our house there, it was thrilling.

We sat outside and watched our daughter's dogs run in the green grass, but when we looked up, we saw blazing yellow maples. They remind us that fall is upon us. Eating outside is such a good idea.

The fun of sharing a family meal outdoors is indeed a joy!

This is just the sort of pleasure that we often do not value enough.

The two comments before this one of mine seem to agree.
