Yesterday, I promised to share my back porch area with you and enjoy it myself while I was preparing this post. As I sit on my glider I am listening to the raindrops fall out of the trees. It is not raining now although we did have a good gentle rain during the night. As the breeze gently moves the branches of the trees, the leaves let go of the rain drops they have been holding on to. Nice. It is also nice to listen to the birds singing back and forth and the crickets chirping. Georgie is out and about exploring all the scents left behind throughout the night. I just saw her go by with her favorite toy in her mouth, a tennis ball. Everything is so green and lush. I need to take time to enjoy this view more often. Occasionally, I can see a horse in a neighbor's field go by through a clearing in the trees. This is a cool and fresh morning even the air smells clean and refreshing.
Let me share some photos of the patio. I need to do some more work on it but it is becoming one of my favorite spots.
I like this little seating arrangement under the stained glass window.
This other corner with the lounger and dogwood tree looks inviting.
This is another corner that I find myself wanting to sit in and enjoy.
Lastly, the food prep area. We have our grill here and I recycled this old dresser into an outdoor buffet.
So that is it for today. I hope you have a wonderful day and remember to take time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. We often times get so caught up in our to do lists that we forget to sit down and enjoy what we already have.
Thanks for viewing a small piece of my world and please leave me your thoughts and comments. I love reading them.
