Summertime is here! I rarely want to be indoors during summer months. I prefer to dine outdoors, play games outdoors, sit and talk with friends outdoors. I prefer to do most everything outdoors right now.
This week on Dirt Road Adventures – Summertime Entertaining, I’m taking a look back at all our outdoor adventures here at The Ponds and I found some great inspiration from some of my favorite bloggers as well.
We did make a little more progress on the guest cottage. The shower tile is finished but trim work needs to be done. Several rooms are now bright and cheerful with a fresh coat of paint. I can’t wait for the full reveal and I will fill you in on all the details soon.
Adventures at the end of the dirt road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
The week began with a Corn Hole Game DIY Scoreboard that I made from a thrift store TV Tray Stand. I love finding a use for a cheap thrifted find.
Next, our monthly supper club took place outside in our outdoor kitchen and it was so fun setting a Patriotic Table for the 4th of July..
Then yesterday, I shared possibly the easiest Appetizer Recipe ever. Joan’s Onion Dip is only 3 ingredients.
