Life Is Good...

Sitting on the deck Sunday evening, 
I realize some elements of the best part of the day are right in front of me.
The grill which cooked the food that nourished my hungry soul.
The beach towel I used to dry off after an awesome first swim in the pool.
My five knockout rose bushes that I had enough energy to trim, they are looking so pretty.

I am in my happy place!

The pool was so refreshing, today was our first swim!

This corn was really good, we are not at awesome yet,
when it is Jersey corn it will be awesome!



Before the sun set, the skies looked like this, they were so blue and so amazing!

Now it's dark, it's late and I am feeling sleepy...
I don't really want to go in the house as I don't want this day to end.

But, a raccoon just scooted across the deck in front of me, signaling it must be time to go inside!

Did you have a good weekend? Filled with fun and special things!

  7. That darn raccoon. LOL It is good to be able to sit back at the end of the day and count our blessings. You have a beautiful place to do that too. I loved the skies here this weekend. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  8. What a beautiful outdoor space! And I'm so glad you got to enjoy your pool. It gives you that 'good tired' at the end of the day to spend time outside and get some exercise. We had a rainy weekend but the sun is out now, so I won't complain! Take care and enjoy your day!

  12. Gorgeous pictures. Sometimes, the best part of a good day, is sitting outside and reflecting on just how good it has been. My weekend was great as well.

  14. Looks like the perfect day, cooking out, swimming and blue skies, with a few floating clouds!! Yep when the wild animals come out it is time to go in :)
    I didn't have a good weekend, I had my vertigo come back again, if I stayed in a certain position I was ok, so I couldn't do much, thankfully I am much better today!!

  16. Oh my sweet friend, you do have a happy place. I loved all the photos and your thoughts. Your pool looks fantastic and I'm sure that first swim was wonderful. I can see why you wouldn't want to go in. I loved all the photos on this one.
    Our Sabbath days are always extra special for us even though we don't go to church right now.
    Blessings and hugs!
