even when the days are really hot here it still tends to cool off towards evening. there's a window of time between the worst of the heat and the worst of the mosquitoes and no-see-ums when it's quite pleasant out. we occasionally take advantage of that time to enjoy our dinner outside. a couple days ago staal grilled some steaks and we sat outside and watched the ducks while we ate. they may have gotten more of my potatoes than i did.
