Sorry if you are confused.
If I were a more cynical person I might mistake that as sarcasm, but being the magnanimous individual that I am I'll assume that it was not your intention to be rude.
When you write something like this,
I am going to keep it outdoors but I can bring it outside every once and a while.
it should not come as a surprise that you are asked to clarify your remarks.
By the way, when someone goes out of their way to help you it is customary to offer thanks, a misunderstanding not withstanding.
