Peaceful Easy Feeling

Between visitors and vacations, we haven't had a free weekend to ourselves in over a month, so once Saturday's round of school shopping, birthday parties, and having Erik's friend over was finished, it felt wonderful to fall back into my old lazy habits where I basically putter around doing nothing in particular.

Coffee on the stone steps while the sun rises over the old apple orchard. A picnic lunch under Ash's leafy canopy. Pull a few carrots from the ground for Sunday dinner. Make a couple of peach pies. And of course, always, wine at sunset on the veranda, keeping an eye out for the Great Blue Heron that makes his summer home down by the river somewhere.

Denise, I really enjoy reading your blog and this entry is beautiful. With all the busyness - back to school shopping, renovations, activities, etc...its nice to be reminded to slow down...
