my lair in the warmer weather times past and future

It has been a mildish winter up here on the southern shore of Georgian Bay.  Good for me, nervewracking for ice-fishing aficionadoes, and a few more snowmobilers have gone through the ice.  Thankfully the last two to get dunked that I heard about on the news got out safely.  The photo shows the road facing side of the cottage and the deck.  I plan to spend a lot of time on the deck once the warmer weather arrives.  I did this last year and I will repeat that this year.  We tried something a little different this past year and it worked out well.  I dragged the large glass top lawn table around from the water side of the cottage to this side and up the stairs.  I added a couple of our grey metal lawn chairs and their cushions.  Instant comfort in a easily assembled outdoor living room. Add a cold drink and a radio. Then with the “dog-gate” sheet of plywood in place blocking off the steps, and Grace, the dog, in place on the deck, and with the shade of the surrounding trees, I spent a lot of time on the deck reading and computing.  We had quite a few meals on the deck as well.  Somehow the glass table made a large difference and so we will resume deck life soon.
