Summer is coming…I can prove it!
Yesterday I received a Wal-Mart flyer in the mail. Usually, this goes straight into recycling, after I make sure no bills are stuck inside…..
Something on the cover stopped me in my tracks!
An outdoor patio set with matching umbrella, was set with coordinating plastic tableware.
I did not like the table, the umbrella, and certainly not the plastic dishes, but together they screamed,
I have a summer birthday, which makes me a summer girl. I celebrate for the entire 3rd quarter of each year!
I also entertain in the summer more than any other time of the year. Mainly, because we have a small lake cottage, and hot sun and cool water are a great mix, it always draws a crowd.
How did Wal-Mart know I would really NEED something from every page?
We have outdoor chair cushions that are limp and faded, they need replaced. We have an umbrella with a broken pole…..my husband wrapped it in duct tape, fortunately that does not hold up to the wind. Good try though!
What really caught my eye was on the very last page. I am going to order TWO Cedar Raised Garden Beds WITH SHELVES (insert clapping hands emoji).!!
Yes, I can spend all summer learning how to make my own, but this girl is ready to GO!
I’m putting a Cedar Garden bench on each side of my lakeside door on my Cedar deck,…. doesn’t that sound Perfect?
How about you? Do you enjoy Summer gardening?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not plowing acreage, but simply packing those beds with herbs, vegetables, florals and grasses…..maybe a little decorative light? Kids love that!
We can eat fresh all summer, and the cottage will be beautiful because of those beds,
This is a WIN- WIN!
Thank you Wal-Mart for remembering me, and helping me to prepare for the
BEST SUMMER EVER!
