I cannot stop grilling this month! Taking advantage of our back deck and grill is probably one of the things I look most forward to during the summer. We’ve really been working on turning the deck into an extension of the rest of our house so that it’s a comfortable place to hang out during the warmer months. Since buying the townhouse 3 years ago we’ve slowly been making improvements to the “room” by adding cushioned furniture, an outdoor rug, citronella lanterns and, of course, the grill. We’ve even been teaching the cat to get comfortable with a harness and leash so she can sit outside with us. It’s truly becoming a family affair.
