Pleasing to Me

It doesn't take much for me to be happy. A day like this with a soft breeze blowing my laundry dry, a robin pecking grubs on the lawn and a relaxing view are so satisfying. Listen to the quiet! Come over and sit on the front porch with me on the old glider and listen to the birds and the hand crafted chimes and whirlygigs as they swing in the winds moving lightly through the air... close your eyes and smell the freshly cut grass and the very faint odors of the surrounding farmland and forests.

Why would I ask for more?


  1. Hey there sweet lady! Miss you, too! Love your descriptions there....wish I was sitting outside by the lake with's so stifling hot here. Not as hot as in the past, but stifling, none the less. So glad you came and helped celebrate my mom's birthday with us. We had fun....and I was OFF on a Saturday! That was wonderful.

    You sound like you are very blessed by your post.....and we are all jealous! Hugs!!!

  2. Sounds wonderful! Sp peaceful and relaxing.

  3. Great post and I can so relate. If the weather is nice, I can sit outside and completely unwind from some of the stresses in my life. My husband doesn't understand why I like to sit out on the deck so much. Maybe I should have him read your post because you've expressed exactly how I feel when I'm surrounded by nature... and you've done it so eloquently.

  4. I have to say that is quite an inviting setting. I'll be over for lunch.
