Rainy Days and Reading

Rainy days and reading go perfectly well together.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011


Some things we did today:

I think I took three walks with my parents today. check on some sweet "Snowbirds," a couple that comes to Grayton every year for the Winter. We had not seen Peter out walking his sweet jack russell terrier in a few days and wanted to check on them. (They were fine and enjoying their glasses of wine at 10:30!) Mid-day...just because it was a beautiful day and wanted to be outside. Sunset...We were in the middle of dinner and jumped up and left the table because the sun was about to set.

We hung a second hammock in the back yard and got so tickled when Mom and I got in one together. Just being silly...

We rescued honey bees from the pool. No clue why they would be there, but we would pick up leaves and let them crawl on the leaf and free them. Just because...

Dad made a huge peach cobbler. These were frozen peaches left over from one of their four trips to a southern peach orchard in Georgia. Their thumbs were tender last summer from all the peaches they cut  and put up last. Still reaping their deliciousness...

We laughed a the pups antics, running and chasing each other on the beach.

Just a glimpse of a perfect day...

Glory Observed

When I walked down to the beach yesterday to watch the sunset, I had no idea it was going to be extra spectacular! I stayed on the beach until the sun melted into the ocean and started walking back to the cottage. Almost there, I looked to my left and saw the real thing. Glorious!! The sky was on fire and I was so grateful to witness its beauty. Just 30 minutes, that's all it took out of my day to walk into such glory! The best part of my day and it was a gift, totally free!
