365 Inspirations—181: Eating Outside

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald 

The past three days in Seattle have been HOT, HOT, HOT!

It's hard to do much when it's hot.

Granted, hot in these parts is not  really considered hot compared to other areas of the country.

Local weather right now at 10:00pm is 80 degrees. Tomorrow is supposed to be up in the 90s!

It's hot in the house because we don't have air conditioning in the Pacific Northwest. It's never usually hot enough to really have it.

I set up the table in the front garden and we've been eating outside for dinner for the past three nights. It's been so lovely.  This evening, I put a white table cloth over the table and got fancy napkins and tableware and set it all up for fine dining.

We have a fence that keeps our front garden area very private.

Tonight we had tacos with all the fixings and watermelon. It was delicious.

Do you like to eat outside in the summer where you live? 


  1. The French LOVE to eat outside! In fact the biggest complaint I heard from people about our wet, rainy spring was that they hadn't been able to eat outside once all spring.

    1. I need to go to France, I love everything about the place!

  2. Wish we could eat outside. Can't do that in summers here in Phoenix. We hit 120 on Friday and Saturday. I'M MELTING!!!!! ha ha The pool is our best friend.
