Summer Daze

On a nice sunny summer afternoon in NY, don't you just want to curl up with a good book? I bought a new magazine last night at Borders, called Southern New England Home. I love looking at "local" homes and decor. I can't wait to crack it open. The pages are nice and thick--it feels like a book, and will probably end up in my decor book collection.
Lost in thought, gazing at the river.

Random river shot.

Kathleen made this fruit pizza last week for a dinner party. Didn't she do a great job?
I just love these in the summer, with all the fresh fruit that's available to us. Yummmy!

A little proud? Hee!
I managed to putty up all the holes in the beadboard and molding in the kitchen today, and got a coat of paint on it all. I'm probably going to need two more coats. Ugh. I weeded my gardens, too, since the humidy has finally broken. It's been pretty nasty here of late. Today and yesterday were gorgeous days. Oh, and I bought a VERY cool stainless steel buffet cart thingie for next to my outdoor grill. I'll take a pic to show y'all later. I got it at a garage sale today! Cheap!

Your Kathleen looks just like you. Beautiful! That fruit pizza looks pretty good to. You tell Kathleen we need instructions so we can make one too.
Sounds to me like you had a very full day. Sit down and open that new magazine. You've earned it.

Summmer days are my favorite, especially the relaxing ones that seem to stretch out forever. (Too few of those!) I'm with Kat: we need the lovely Kathleen's recipe - or a bite!

Beautiful photos, as usual! Kathleen is a doll and makes a great fruit pizza too!

Kathleen is smart, gorgeous AND a great cook? Gee...wonder where she gets that? She's a chip off the old block!

Great photos and can't wait to see the cart with your uber-cool kitchen!

Fruit pizza, one of my fave's! And she did such pretty job arranging the fruit.
Yep, we need to see the cart, please.
