Here in my neck of the woods, we are experiencing very strange weather. Blistering hot for a few days then torrential downpours and hurricane force winds.
Trees down, power failures and computer problems. Last week I woke up and found our patio umbrella upside down, suspended from a pine tree 10 feet in the air.
Even though the weather has not been cooperating and our umbrella has seen better days, we try to take advantage of our precious summer months whenever possible. They will be gone before we know it.
Have you hosted any summer parties recently or do you have any plans to? If so, visit our yard parties webpage and get some ideas for fun yard games, easy buffet food and a couple summer party punch recipes including a tasty rum punch perfect for a crowd.
Even if it is just a few people enjoying cocktails and appetizers on your deck, we hope you have a chance to get outside with friends and family and enjoy the sunshine.
