Over the past few weeks we’ve had a series of AMAZING storms. Its been so much fun to sit on our back patio, listening to the thunder roll in, feel the wind as the rain starts and watch the lightening light up the sky as if it was a firework show. Our back patio has become a Spring time haven and I almost can’t stand to be inside!
We’ve made some progress in terms of our plans for the space. We got a quote from an electrician to install three ceiling fans and a couple of extra outlets for our upcoming outdoor kitchen and I’ve been continuously searching for inspiration:
Gorgeous alfresco dining
I’m loving that dry stacked stone wall.
So rustic and elegant
I love the gravel.
Evening fire and a glass of wine, anyone?
These stone pavers TOTALLY have my attention
And THESE have given me an idea…
along with these succulents…something even I can’t kill.
Its no secret that I’m a die hard Jamie Oliver fan. It’s also no secret that I’m appalled by the food that my son’s school dishes out to unsuspecting children, calling it healthy, which is why my son is not ALLOWED to buy lunch at school…EVER.
Sadly, there are millions of children who eat both breakfast AND lunch at school because their parents work early and may not have time to feed them before they leave.
Even MORE tragic is that for millions of others, that ONE lunch and possibly breakfast at school may be the only meals they eat for the day due to economic hardships.
Shouldn’t the food be healthy???
Did anyone else watch this last night?
In ONE year, this is the amount of sugar that the L.A. Unified School District feeds it’s children JUST in the form of flavored milk…enough to overflow a school bus.
