Despite the crazy heat, we managed to lounge around quite a bit--the Fluffs are so pleased that it's warm enough to spend long hours on the back deck again. (Just in case you haven't caught on, most of this posting is about the Fluffs.)
Pearl loves my lounge chair almost as much as me. She doesn't love it as much when Penny shares it with her, but she actually managed to tolerate sharing for nearly half an hour. An impressive record in this house.

On Saturday, we finally managed to get all of our summer plants in their pots. We have two cherry tomatoes and one San Marzano tomato, and then the typical herbs you would find on any patio. I'm always shocked by how quickly this stuff takes off--I like to think it's because the back deck roasts during the day under the sun. Maybe it's that Mediterranean-type solar infusion that gets all those little plants going?

On Monday night, Ron made pizzas on the new pizza stone for the grill (early anniversary gift from moi--I guess there's no point in waiting until late July for something that could be used all summer). And you can see in that last photo that he made me a cranberry pink drink of some kind--very good. The Fluffs and I are headed out back for our morning deck session, but I will not be using my lounge chair today ... the Fluffs won't be using it either:

So now I'm off to Kmart to buy a new one! Isn't it great that it feels like Monday, but really it's TUESDAY??
