a patio for all seasons?

It seemed the perfect morning to try out our new patio heater...our Christmas gift from all the kids. What a great gift!

They know we like having breakfast out on the patio...so now we can extend the season. Today was pushing it a little though! When the 'Western Producer' looked like paper mache, we knew it was time to come in.

The snow is falling once again...we're not used to having snow this often. Patio weather seems like a very long time ago!

Enjoy the day...


  1. Judy,
    I feel like you snuck into our garage and saw our christmas gift from our kids and here you are posting one of my next posts. How funny is that? Terry took ours to the shop and I think it may stay there for a bit. We love ours too.
    The picture really bought a smile to my face.
    Tell Elmer he's a real sport.

  2. Looks a little chilly to me!! I'd be willing to try it though even in our deep freeze weather even if only for a few minutes. We've been basking in "spring like" weather for a week!

  3. What a thoughtful gift which you will appreciate each and every time you use it!
    Down here in the Mid-West we are having an unusual week of mild weather. I actually went out yesterday without a coat or jacket and I have the windows up today.
    Sometimes you just have to make the most of every ounce of nice-ness that happens during the winter.
    Wishing you many more patio days ahead!

  4. That's so cute. You guys are so funny. Its funny how we all wait with our "posts on draft," and use it to become a cute filler.

    Hope you didn't freeze too much. I had thought about a walk, but chickened out. I'll go to the gym instead.
    I love waking up to the fresh snow in the mornings.

  5. I love the picture....but it still looks cold to me! Brrrrrr!!!!
    I loooove the snow...but only on a limited basis! *lol*
    What a thoughtful gift! When I lived in the Midwest there were many times I would have loved that....and still would here in AZ! Enjoy!
