time out

time out to relax!
Steven and I just had a patio laid down in our backyard. : ))

This photo was taken tonight . . . our friends Garth and Nora were supposed to be visiting from New York, but their trip had to be postponed. So we had this fire in their honor, as Garth really loves campfires and Garth is how Steven and I met in the first place, back in 1972!!! We have been friends a  l-o-n-g  time. Steven & I know we will see our friends another time soon . . . . Garth and Nora promised to come at another time this winter!

Our new patio is just the coolest thing (we love it!) and I'm sure it will help us to enjoy our backyard even more than we already do. Steven & I are very lucky to have 3 huge live oak trees that are so outstanding, especially for Florida. I fell in love with the backyard the first time I saw it. The new patio was built in only 2 days, Wednesday & Friday. To see all the photos of the build, here's a link to a slideshow in my new home set on flickr. I hope you enjoy. 

Asia & Chloe checking it out!

love this pattern!!

we are quite pleased!


  1. The patio looks wonderful, Lenna. I am sure you will enjoy it. Love the fire!

  2. Wow, fab patio job! Shame your friends couldn't visit, let's hope they can rearrange soon. I'm very jealous of your sunshine, and only wearing a little cardigan in the evening; it's f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g here, with snow forecast. Brrrrrr!


  3. Your patio looks great, so inviting!! And the fire really appeals to me's pretty cold here!! Will write later sweet friend.
    Still trying to shake this cold!

  4. What a gorgeous patio, and a great place to have a glass of wine and contemplate the day!
