We Wanna Win Us a Ceiling Fan!

The awesome gang at One Project Closer is having another giveaway. This time, it's for a ceiling fan from Home Depot. I've watched enough HGTV to know that ceiling fans aren't for everyone, but I really like 'em. Some are nicer than others and of course, the nicer ones are on the pricier end. That's why winning one is so handy.

If I won the gift card, I would put a fan on my back patio. See, it gets really hot back there during our 9 months of summer. There's an overhang and it traps heat and for some reason, flies like to buzz around that area too. If I had a nice outdoor fan it would circulate air around the patio, keeping us a little bit cooler and it might drive away some of those nasty flies. It would really be a benefit to the public health.
This is what is lighting our back patio now . . .

. . . it's a orange paper lantern. Sad, huh? Happier than a white paper lantern, but still pathetic.

And here's the real reason I want a fan for the back patio - it's for when we break out the tiki bar. When we bought the house, K couldn't wait to get a tiki bar. Since then, we've hardly used it, being so busy with the remodel. But soon we'll be in a position to relax a little and actually enjoy our house. So don't you think that this man, who has worked so hard to turn a crummy little fixer-upper into a comfortable home, . . .

. . . deserves to enjoy his tiki bar in breezy, fly-free comfort?

Let us drink mai-tais until our livers are laden with rum and our pancreases shut down from the sugar. Let us pass out under a cooling, artificial breeze. Let the flies not alight on our pineapple garnish. That's all we ask.

Let us have a ceiling fan.

Sounds like a plan to me. We have one in our carport and I can't tell you how nice it has been to collapse on the park bench while working on any of the innumerable projects in the summer heat.
