As the temperatures drop, I have been wanting one of those groovy-looking patio heaters. You know the ones? Tall. Sleek. Attractive.
Because . . . I want to stay out on the patio, enjoying drinks and snacks and looking at the garden . . . in my flip flops . . . for as long as possible.
So I sent Tom to Lowes.
And he came back with a perfectly serviceable, function-over-form propane tank-top heater.
Not even a little bit attractive.
But you know what? It WORKS.
As the sun went down and the temperature dipped into the low 50s, Tom and I enjoyed our drinks and snacks and conversation on the patio. Without coats. Without blankets.
Thanks, Mr. Heater!
