My dad, accompanied by my son, came bearing gifts yesterday. A sunlounger & a big table that he built. Can’t wait to put it up somewhere in the garden. It makes such a huge difference having a good sized table outside. Great place to gather. Not that I have many people over anymore, but still hoping that'll change someday.

That’s actually the second sunlounger I’ve gotten lately. (A sign that I should get my pale body some colour maybe? ...naaah.) My sweet, sweet neighbour gave me a retro one a few weeks ago. Which made me extremely happy, plus it took me back to when I was little... We used to have those with us to the beach, orange floral pattern & all. I know I say this a lot, but damn I miss the sea… It's like I can smell it & hear it whenever I close my eyes. 

Aaaanyway, getting these things just made me think about the exterior state of my house. It’s a work in progress, to say the least. Plus me being on snail pace doesn’t really help progress either. But, my brain still functions-ish...so my mind started drifting towards what I’d like to be done around here. Especially on the terrace above my garage. It’s a decent size & I’d really love to have an outdoor area up there with a pergola & a proper lounging area underneath to chill, come rain or shine I’d probably be there. 

I'd like something like this, but maybe not as busy though.  Source.

I’d also like new wall cladding, a french door leading out there, the list goes on & on… One day I might have it the way I want. Whether or not it’s in this place, time will tell. For now though I’ll sneak upstairs to lay on one of those loungers & maybe I’ll get to see a shooting star…or at the very least, catch a glimpse of a satellite gliding across the sky. ;)

I drifted into a summer-nap under the hot shade of July, serenaded by a cicadae lullaby, to drowsy-warm dreams of distant thunder. ~Terri Guillemets.
