We have a new umbrella for our west facing deck. It tilts so we can use the table and chairs longer into the day. We like to eat breakfast and lunch outside, but don't like sitting in too much sunshine. So this tilting gadget is just what we needed. I have been reading out there until just a few minutes ago. It is now 2:48 PM. It was delightful. I was reading last years December edition of the magazine REAL SIMPLE. Maybe looking at pictures of Christmas Trees and Winter pictures helped me stay cool too.
