The New Shelter Out Back

shelter
I keep talking about the new shelter they built out back recently. Well, here it is. The new shelter, located not much more than 10 yards outside my back door.

That's a wheelbarrow thingy sitting there in the shelter, for scale.

The shelter came very much in handy for the annual Chicken BBQ, and I imagine it'll be handy too for the Wiener Roast in July. As for the rest of the time, well, if you suddenly had a shelter like this appear out in back of your place, wouldn't you be tempted?

I've been trying it out already. Sitting out there of an evening, with brats and beer and boombox, and maybe a magazine to read. Quietly sitting there in a lawn chair. Well, quietly except for the rock music. Like they say, "quiet" is a frame of mind, not a decibel level.

That looks really good. Really really good. You know, the pavillion at our old church had a border of gravel around it. Good for drainage, low maintainence, no mud. Cause I'm thinking that drip-line on the roof is always going to leave a mud-line around the edge of the concrete floor.

On the other hand, I've been talking to my mother and that makes me a touch ... hyper-critical :(

Lets think HAPPY thoughts! That is SO cool that they love you enough to put a pavillion in your backyard! Sure, its not "your" pavillion, but if they didn't love you that pavillion wouldn't be where it is. Sitting out there must be like getting a hug from someone you like :)

that looks like a nice place to sit and read, or meditate, or whatever.

I love it when people go all out, or at least enough to put up something nice.

Enjoy!
