Remember to be thankful for what you have and not what you don't.

It's beautiful here, currently 74. Perfect for porch sittin', bird watching and coffee drinking.

What are you all doing today?

Freedom ... in so many ways, public and personal.

Have picked the last of the rhubarb for jam, very important as it's one of my mom's favorites.

And beatin' the heat!!

Thanks you guys for the well wishes.

Porch Sitting, Coffee Drinking, Bird Watching

Latanalane, you sound like my kind of friend! I love the simple pleasures in life and the beauty of nature that God gives us all for free to see. :-)

It's one of my favorite

It's one of my favorite things to do..porch sit and bird watch especially in the morning sipping coffee. Not too many people these take the time to just enjoy and relax. Growing up I spent a lot of time with my Grandma and it was always her routine to clean up after dinner and retire to the porch. Sometimes we snapped beans, quilted or played cards. Fun memories. Now when my college kids come to visit I make it a routine to sit out with them. No TV or distractions, just talking, laughing and solving the worlds problems..lol

What? Turn the squawk box off?? Say it ain't so!!

Good to hear. I used to jump up, dash off to work ... only to feel all day like I can't catch up. Just a half hour to view the weather, play with the cats and water the houseplants makes a big difference.

And Lantana, as far as LOL on solving the world's problems, don't laugh! How many inventions started in the basement or garage?

And that includes rock'n'roll's Garage Bands too (what would Neil Young say if I didn't include that?) :shock:
