Today was one of those perfect weather days. The sun was shining, it was warm but not hot, and the humidity was delightfully low. A friend in our church fellowship observed, "If it was like this all the time, we couldn't afford to live here."
So we took dessert and coffee out to the patio and soaked it in. The perfect weather, that is, not the dessert and coffee. Although, come to think of it, I suppose we soaked that in too. Blueberry Cheese Pie (recipe ~here~) and Klondike Bars. Which would you choose?
A black swallowtail joined our dessert party as she sipped sweet nectar from the white verbena.

We're also sighing because...
The kitchen project is complete!
I thought that we'd all be jumping up and down. Instead, we are sighing with happy contentment, glad to have some breathing space. Right in the middle of our kitchen remodel, Ron's workplace went through some major changes, requiring him to work some very long and stressful hours. But he plugged away at it for the past six weeks, checking something off his list almost every evening and every Saturday. He is a gem.
Yesterday morning was the final paint touch up...and it. is. done. Happy sigh...
Tomorrow: AFTER photos!
