Summertime Tables

The saving grace of life in an apartment is that we have a lovely balcony. For those precious sunny, warm months, Uwe and I spend most of our hours sitting outdoors.

That balcony may well have saved my sanity during the corona virus lockdowns…. When we were finally vaccinated, we invited friends over for dinner. I actually set a ‘real’ table, with table cloth, deco, and flowers.

As winter settles in to stay, here is a photo to remind you all that better weather will be back eventually. In the meantime, may all your meals be delicious and your table always filled with friends and flowers.

Happy New Year!

  1. I live in southern Arizona, in the high desert. I can be out on my patio about nine months of the year. It absolutely saved my sanity! I was able to have friends over many times. Christmas last year was too cold, so I had a “drive-by” Christmas. I set all the food out on tables and others came and added more. Everyone went through the line separately and took the plates home.

    1. Most of the time it’s just me and Uwe so it was a lovely chance to actually set a table and break bread together again! Happy New Year to you and yours!
