Today was a great day. Admittedly, this is not my most exciting post. But the smiles kept coming all day.
We finally got a screen door installed. Just as I caved this summer with our land-scapping, I decided I could not survive another summer in this house without opening the front door and letting in some fresh air.
Our side door already had a screen and now we're getting some wonderful cross ventilation. The kick plate was supposed to be white, not brass, but I'm so happy with the fresh air, I don't even care about the mix-up. I'm sure it will get fixed. And in an odd way, I think the screen door makes our front entrance more welcoming. Am I the only one who thinks so? And now that I'm looking at the pictures, I think it's about time I make a new Summer front door wreath!
And...my Sketchers arrived today. Mr. Stranded and I went on a long walk after dinner. It was a beautifully warm night with a gentle breeze. A perfect summer night.
And...our peonies are beginning to bloom.
And...I Skyped with two of the most beautiful girls in the world - our twin nieces.
