Gerry spends the better part of the day cutting down tall cedars next to our patio and deck, and tending to the aftermath. It’s a big job done on a hot day and the mosquitoes are merciless.
The view from our deck is more expansive this morning, but there’s the issue of looking into our neighbours windows (and vise versa) without the trees for privacy. Something will have to be done. I’m not sure what just yet.
I’ve ordered new window coverings—top down bottom-up blinds like the ones we recently installed above my kitchen sink and in our den—and we’re waiting on cedar paneling to build a barrier on the lower patio. I’ve got to figure out something for the upper deck, the place I like to spend summer afternoons with a good book and a glass of cold tea. I’m open to suggestions.
Meanwhile, there’s this. I’ll just enjoy it for now.
