In Kentucky we have a saying that if you don’t like the weather….
It’s so true.
Around here the weather can change on a dime.
One minute you are sitting on your back porch in the most amazing set of indoor/outdoor chairs listening to the crickets and drinking sweet tea and discussing if hamburgers taste better on a charcoal grill and if pink lemonade goes better with french fries than orange popsicles.
And then you blink.
And this happens.
The temperature drops 14 degrees and the wind begins to bluster and the dark clouds roll in and your hair starts to blow and your bobby pin clatters to the porch floor.
And you grab your tea and your conversation and head for the hills.
That’s the weather in Kentucky.
I wish it always the view from the back porch always looked like this.
Or even this.
I wish the sun was always shining.
I wish the sky was always blue and the dining set was always ready for supper and the apples were freshly washed and the laundry was on the line and the crickets were chirping and the cows were making hay.
Cows don’t really make hay.
But as much as I love sweet tea and a back porch and conversation and a sunny summer day….
…..there are days when I’m happy for the rain.
And the wind billowing through the trees.
And the thunder and the lightning.
And for all the storms and tempests and cloudy days….
….that help me appreciate every single ray of that wonderful, glorious sunshine. 🙂
PS Just in case you thought I was kidding about the weather….
….yesterday this showed up when I blinked. 🙂
I want to give a giant shout out to Home Decorator’s Collection for sponsoring this post.
And Martha Stewart for these great entertaining tips.
And I adore this furniture.
The quality and durability is amazing, every single detail is amazing and it’s held up to every single blink of the weather.
I’m also all about the new line of black craft furniture they just released.
