Yesterday after work, I decided to go out on the deck to chill out. So, I unplugged the laptop and away I went!
It rained earlier that day, washing away the hot muggy humidity that was lingering in the air making it hard to breathe! These last few days have been more like a sauna, keeping me indoors instead of outside enjoying in the sun!
Now, since the humidity is gone, I decided to go out and soak up the perfect environment. The song birds are going crazy this evening, creating their frantic songs! The clouds are slowly floating by, looking more like some grey ghost floats from a Macy’s parade than the soft billowy white clouds I’d rather see…
My dog, while initially sniffing at the air, had settled down in her typical laying down position, looking like she doesn’t have a care in the world. Occasionally, she’ll perk up at the sound of kids playing off in the distant. Perhaps she thinks they are her kids (since my son and daughter are sleeping over at the grandparents).
I decide to go into the fridge and grab the relaxing cool beverage in the usual brown bottle 😉 It’s a rare time alone, so I decide to blog about the experience, just to give a sense of what my life is like when I’m at my most relaxed time, batteries recharging so to speak. And to read about some day, just so I remember how great it is here, right now, when everything is quiet and peaceful.
I think how lucky I am to live in a clean, green world… and that minus the occasional distant kids playing, is very quiet and relaxing.
As I turn slightly to my right, I see two rabbits jumping lazily in the neighbor’s yard. I live in a 10 year old allotment, so many of the houses are newer and closer than where I grew up. Seeing the rabbits aren’t that common, although one lived beside our chimney in the flowers a few years ago…
In many ways, with the houses equally spaced, it kind of reminds me of a row of plants in a garden, although the trees have grown large enough now to break that feeling up a bit.
In this type of setting, I do my best thinking and creating!
I don’t get many days like this, but it’s part of living a frugal life, stopping to listen to the song birds and smell the freshness in the air after the down pour of a humidity freeing rain from earlier in the day…
Life is good, and the evening is beautiful! Soon the clouds will turn that reddish pink color as the sun starts to set.
If you made it this far, thanks for listen to me ramble! Some days like today are worth writing about alone!
Have you stopped and enjoy any days recently, especially when it’s perfect outside? I think it’s good medicine for a stressful life!
