Sunset Services

Our house sits on a dead end. We have a neighbor to the east side of our house, a pasture out back, and an empty lot out front and to the west of us. This picture is from the front yard. The chair, table, and bench are for "sunset services." That means the Mr. lights the tiki torches or smokes a cigar to drive away the mosquitoes. A drink in hand, we catch up on the day and figure out what yard work needs to be done next. I've been missing those this week. I've been working every night, so I've got some catching up to do next week.

Here's to more sunset services before I head back to school!

PS. The Mr. will tell you that I have been known to take my book or even my laptop outside, which kind of ruins the whole ambiance of the service. It is a good thing he is pretty tolerant.

It looks the perfect spot for your sunset service. It is so easy to get wrapped up with blogging. I think he gets jealous that I spend so much time with my new blogging friends :)

(I love the term sunset services. I am totally stealing it!)

That looks like a beautiful spot for reading and laptopping! I think those things should definitely be allowed at your sunset services!
