I knew just what to get my husband for his birthday this year. We don’t have a deck so our lawn furniture consist of cheep plastic chairs that can be hosed of it. They’re not exactly comfortable, especially for how often I catch him sitting out there taking in the summer. So for his birthday I got him a comfortable hammock to hang between the trees.
I really did get it for him. I never planned on stealing it. Its just so comfortable. The perfect place to kick back with an adult beverage and a good book or some Netflix streaming on the iPad.
Ever since I first watched the Netflix original Orange is The New Black I have been wanting to read the book from which the series is based – Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison. After binge watching all of Season 1 and then Season 2 I finally laid back in the hammock to start the book. It was fantastic but…now that I’m waiting for Season 3 and need something else to pass my time in the hammock.
