simple is beautiful

The View

Wednesday, June 2, 2010


     Maybe this will help to explain why I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things this week.  When we go to the mountains, we sit on the porch.  Period.  No, we do a few other things, but sitting on the front porch is a big chunk of it.  From the front porch we see....

    ...and then there is Mom's window box that might possibly be my new favorite color combination of lavender, orange, and white.

    I'm blaming my lack of motivation on the view and the fact that I would love to be sitting on the porch gazing at the pasture, the mountains, and the river while enjoying the cool mountain air.  What about you?  Would you rather be somewhere else?

    2. What a wonderful vacation! I love just sitting around with nothing more exciting in my agenda than drinking a cup of coffee. We all need to relax and I like how you do it!

    4. Rene,
      I am working hard at enjoying right where I am without having to feel the urge to get away. My husband and I had lunch just yesterday on the patio as he had a day off, and he said, I could get used to this!
      I love living in the moment-
      sweet photo-(s)

    5. I just said to my husband this morning, when he left for work, how wonderful it would be to spent all summer in the country in a small cottage, doing nothing but enjoying summer!
      Love your blog, btw. Greetings from Norway...

    6. I went to college in the mountains and miss something about it every season. During the summer, it's the hint of coolness in the breeze even on the warmest days...and the wildflowers. Think I'm gonna need to make a trip soon. :)

    7. I wouldn't mind being where you are...how lovely! My first choice is always the beach! The beach at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club to be exact on a blue and white striped towel layed over a chair gazing into the Pacific Ocean...aaahhh wish I was there right now!

      Your picture is darling!

      Enjoy!

    8. I don't blame you, with views like that and your hubby by your side I wouldn't want to work either!

      I'd rather be sipping tea in a tiny tea room in the north of England right now! It's just too darn hot here at the moment!
