Wish You Were Here...:)

Today turned out to be a rather nice day, considering it's nearly the end of October.  A good portion of the day was overcast.  Then a sudden downpour would occur while the air itself remained warm and humid.  The rain then gave way to bright sunshine.  Before you knew it, the cycle would again repeat itself.  Gosh!  I never gave it much thought...maybe I should have been a weather announcer...:)LOL!!

I went out on the front porch to sit for a while.  It's sad to say, but I wish the front porch was used more frequently.  I love sitting out there!  Sometimes, I bring the dogs out there with me and make them down/stay while I sit and listen to the "sounds of my world" around me...birds chirping, the cry of a distant red-tail, a chipmunk rustling in the fallen leaves, a squirrel noisily making it's way along the slope of the mountain, the flowing water in the creek.  It's truly heavenly and can actually put you in a trance of sorts for those of you who haven't experienced it.





Today I snapped a few photos while it was raining.  As you can see, from where I was sitting, I could also picture you were there with me, sitting, perhaps, in one of the rocking chairs.





So, consider this your official invitation...:)

I absolutely LOVE it! In fact, I could sit there for HOURS and be completely at peace. What a wonderful sanctuary you are blessed with.

M-m-lets see my sister lives in Columbia South carolina..How far are you from there? I'll bring my sister and we can sit and laugh and drink hot tea or ice tea on your porch.. She is a lover of birds and wildlife like me. Looks like a good place to sit and talk about lots of things...

If I had a porch likes yours I'd sit on it all the time! Our house is a colonial with the little porch in the front. This time of year is perfect to be outside but you can't really sit on our porch from the lady bugs. They love the white siding and are swarming to it. So with all of that I'd love to sit on your porch!

Have a Great Day!

So peaceful! It's the same with me I have wonderful benches all over in the garden and all sorts of "special" spots...but for some reason I'm always too busy to sit down and enjoy...will definitely work on this next spring!
