The patio is in need of some assistance

Happy Memorial Day to you! I'm having a hard time believing that it is already the end of May, but then I got my a/c bill and realize yes indeed it is May! The summer heat is upon us. So, I hope you get a chance to kick back and relax today.

On my Memorial Day agenda is to:
1. Fix my blog layout. I think I've finally figured out how to add a 3rd column in blogger. (UPDATE-I may hold off I'm reading comments with mixed reviews on doing this) So let's hope for the best in my fancy technology skills. Oh, and most importantly update my blog roll. Sorry it has taken me awhile to do that.
2. Laundry and Ironing- ugghhh!!!
3. Grocery store- We just got back into town and with no energy remaining we dined on a frozen pizza for dinner.
4. Read. I've started a couple books and would really like to finish at least one.

Okay, now I'm calling on y'all for your patio opinions. I have a little area outside that I want to spend some birthday money on and furnish it with a few chairs and maybe an end table. I don't want anything too fancy because this is where pug can be found working on his tan when he goes outside. So mainly a place to sip Dr. Peppers and read. Y'all pick an option and let me know because they are about the same in price and I'm to the point where I like them all too much.

Option 1: Bringing a little Tuscany to Suburbia

Option 2: Pass the lemonade

Option 3: Adorable seat cushions, but where do my arms rest?

Option 4: Not your grandma's rocker (black rocker with damask cushions)

You can vote above in the handy poll box. Spiffy!

Hope that you have a great day! Enjoy reading and the grocery store :) I really like the roker ... it looks comfy enough to spend lots of time in outside. I err on the side of comfy!

We made homemade ice cream. Yummilicious!

I voted for the rocker, but that's my style. You mentioned wanting to sit out and read, so I'm assuming entertaining isn't the key reason to get a set. If so, then go for the lemonade set. Simple and elegant.

S'mores tonight, if it doesn't rain. It ain't lookin' good . . .

Definitely the rocker. Especially if you're going to be reading!

I'm with you about the a/c bill! It's warm here too. Everytime I hear the a/c turn on, I see dollar signs. UGH!

I understand about the air running I vote but I was torn between the rocker and pass the lemonade
