During the summertime, when I get home from a stressful day at work, I always look forward to sitting in my backyard with a beer of my choosing (this evening it's a Stella) whilst tending to the BBQ. Tonight we're having a thick and juicy T-bone.
We're finally getting our backyard to a point where it's actually relaxing and quite beautiful with the maturing trees and all the perenials my wife has planted over the years. We've also been collecting some gargoyle statues that are placed around our yard. Those combined with a couple of crosses gives our yard the feel of a cemetery. For some reason I've always felt very comfortable in a cemetery ... not sure why. Aside from slight neighbor noises (we've got to find a place in the country soon) all I can hear is the wind through the trees, some birds that have nested in our cedar tree, and the sounds of 2 squirrels chasing each other through the trees. Definitely my little piece of oasis here in my backyard.
