A day in the sun

Remember last week I had the day off because of the whole jury duty thing that I didn't have to go to? What I didn't tell you was what a beautiful day it was. The sun was shining, it was warm and the perfect day.
Duke suggested that we spend it outside.
What a great idea that was. I pulled the umbrella out and we parked on the deck

I had the three essential C's with me (camera, crocheting, coke) and the perfect companion to enjoy the day.
I didn't even care that the deck is a hideous sight. I was just happy to be out there

I love the effect you did to the first picture. Awesome.

Looks like you had the best day ever - with all the necessary ingredients!

Now that is my kinda day. Although I cannot crochet but a coke and Duke would be perfect. I love the effect on that first shot, very cool.

Kelly Rachel said...

Love the three Cs! And can't wait to see what you hooked up out there on your deck.

Sandee said...

I can't crochet either, but a diet Pepsi and Duke would have worked out fine. How fun.

Have a terrific day. My very best to Duke. :)

Think I told you, Ann, that I power washed our deck and deck furniture last week. AND--guess what??? It's rained and been COLD here every since. Haven't been able to sit out there YET... ha ha
Hugs,

Looks like a great way to spend the day! Love how Duke has his very own chair! :)

What a perfect day xx

That is quite an effect to that first shot. I don't really like it, but it is still quite an effect.

Duni said...

You should see our terrace...we still haven't gotten round to making it look presentable. Oh well.

Jen said...

Looks like a great place to hang out to me! I definitely wouldn't worry about it looking all perfect (we're not that picky ;o)

Miawa said...

love what you did to the first pic, and yes, yes, yes - come on Mr Sun...

Russ said...

It is so good to be able to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. We had a bad winter. Now if it ever stops raining over here, I will join you outside.

Catherine said...

What a perfect way to spend the day Ann! I am on holidays next week. I hope to do exactly the same thing at least on one of those days.

Except I will be on a patio instead of a deck, and I will have a cat instead of a dog, and I will have a Pepsi rather than a Coke, but I will have my camera!! ;)

When I worked for the schools you had to give them your jury check since they paid you also.

Buzzing J said...

err ... that's FOUR essential C's.

Anne said...

You and Duke look like you had a fabulous day!

Bossy Betty said...

We the people of the Blog Jury find you innocent of any crime and sentence you to more days just like this!

Audrey said...

I'm trying to convince hubby we need a screen tent on our deck. Would love to be able to sit outside all day and enjoy the warm sun (in the shade - lol).
We just have so many mosquitoes and bugs.
Glad you had a warm sunny day off :)

Erika said...

Duke makes me want a companion. But that might not be a good idea with two toddlers already keeping me busy!

Donna said...

Cool effect on the first shot!
You sound like me...camera & coke...Hahaaa...
Glad you enjoyed the day!

This beautiful Spring days are something to be thankful for, aren't they? And a fluffy white friend is the icing on the cake :)

Uggghh...that was bad. In so many ways. Sorry....

Marg said...

That sounds like the dream time to me to be sitting there with that cute Duke. Course we would like to sit outside with our hundreds of cats and our two doggies, Jasmine and Ande. What could be better. Take care.

Lin said...

How lucky you were to get that day off to do nothing but chill! I am sooo envious. Isn't it nice to just sit for a bit with Duke?

Ha! I like your essential 3. That would work for me lots of days... but maybe a need a book too.
