Its a Beautiful Day in Pennsylvania

This has been a beautiful, sunny and warm day.  I was outside drinking my coffee on the back deck this morning, looking out over the lake.  That's one of my favorite things to do when the weather is warm.  It's very quiet here early in the day, so you can hear the birds sing, a few lawn mowers running, a dog bark now and then, and every once in a while a boat will go by.   Since my little Fergie has to be wherever I am, he also enjoys laying in front of me in his little bed.
Then after lunch I told Bob we needed to clean up the fire pit sitting area down by the lake.  Austin and family are coming up tonight for dinner and we promised Logan and Landen we would make a fire and do smores.
Bob moved the furniture out of the way and cut the grass.  I finished raking up the leaves and sticks left over from the winter.  Then I sat in my blue glider for a little rest.  I love days like this.  Now it's 5:00 and I'm going to go back out on the deck with a glass of wine before I start the salad for dinner.  I'm going to grill a few steaks for Bob and I and the kids are bringing a pizza. 
Now here's the possible spoiler of the whole day.  It's starting to look like it may rain! So there you have it; a typical late spring/summer day in Western Pennsylvania.  We may be having smores heated up in the microwave!

Sounds like a delightful day! It was gorgeous here in S. Jersey too. I headed "Down the Shore" with my girlfriends for the day.

S'mores make the best memories. I can imagine how good they are down by the lake!

Seems so often our campfire plans get rained out too. We've had more than our usual share lately. Still, we've managed a few already this season.

Hope your enjoying your trip.
