When the house is tidy and the school work is done I am usually one of three places.
If I am not in the kitchen working or in the gardens planting...you can probably find me on a blanket in the green, green grass.
I'll miss my patio when it is raining and I want to be outside (there is nothing better than eating dinner outside in a rain storm, you know) but for now I have made a few happy spots around the yard that distract me from my patio-pining.
When it is sunny and hot,, I plant myself under the first big tree of the "tree fence" that gives the perfect amount of shade and where the children are playing in the hammocks in the background. But more likely, on these beautiful spring days, I plop myself down in the front yard near the lilacs (that never bloomed) and the old, falling down barn where I can soak up the sun that I had so desperately yearned for all winter long.
It feels good to breathe deep.
