Dinner in the back yard on a summer eve. It sounds so simple, but with my back yard exposed to the neighbors, the almost too-friendly neighbors, the fact that there is no fence, no screening, means every time we use the back yard when they are around, we are definitely on display. Tonight they weren’t around and so we took advantage of the space and cooler air, never mind that it was leftovers, it was a great summer meal. Next year, one way or another, there will be a private back yard to enjoy, even if there’s still no pool.
