"they gave us granite?"

Fantastic news .. . .
I have myself a granite counter top. . .
This weekend we cracked open our Christmas gift from our kids.
Up until very recently. . .
we haven't bothered since we've not had more than one dry day in a row.

After my patio heater assembler completed the task. . .(instructions were in the box)
I moseyed on over and tapped on what I thought would be a hard plastic "drink holder shelf thing".
I said. . ."is that granite?"
he said. . ."Yes it is"
I ran into the house and brought out a soft cloth to buff it up a bit.
I'm feeling a wee bit proud. .
Don't be one bit surprised when you are over at my house for a BBQ and I immediately drag you over to see the granite. ..
Thanks Kids. . . we love it.

A heater. . . a BBQ and a Patio Set. . .
I'm looking out the window at this moment. . .
I see clouds. Clouds are Okay ..
Now if they could just keep their contents within.

Have a great day,
I'm off to buy BBQ "fixins".

  6. The granite IS lovely.
    Now could you just explain the "heater" part?

    Around here we have overhead ceiling fans installed outside to keep up cool. Maybe we could work out a needs compromise. Your patio is getting to be quite posh!

  12. Sounds like some exciting times ahead with your patio. We've spent three weeks sitting on outdoor patios.
    The weather was sunny. I was feeling guilty for all my friends out here.
    I'll catch up shortly again.
    It's good to connect again.

  13. I love those patio heaters! Some of the restaurants here in Florida have those in their outdoor dining areas and they have certainly been necessary a time or two (you know, for those two weeks of Winter each year)!

    Your patio is looking mighty appealing!

  15. I'm smiling, Lovella... What a neat thing to have! Hmmm...I'm thinking I might wrangle myself an invite sometime soon... I have never seen one of those granite top patio heaters. Sounds like a perfect idea for those cool summer days we are capable of in our part of the world.
