Lately the nights start out fairly warm. But by morning, there is a chill in the air.
The sun is shining now after many days of rain. Right now I see a squirrel cavorting around the patio and hear the sound of bird wings flapping.
The birds fly around the patio, lighting here or there. The Bewick wren is notorious for this. This wren flies about as if uncertain where to land.
I sit here and watch the birds out the patio doors. It is my window into the world of nature.
Create a world for them, and they will come to the feeders and bird baths. It may take them awhile, but eventually they will venture to in to checks things out.
Where I Work:
Then this is where I do the main work on this blog. The sofa chaise here is the place where I elevate my ankle.
Right now I’m at the desktop in the other room where I download photos.
As the weather cools off during the day, I spend time out here on the patio. Gazing at all that I have planted in my six months here. And enjoying the breeze and the birds.
And now it is time for breakfast and coffee. Which I will sip slowly, savoring the warmth and the taste. I like to mix half caffeinated and half decaffeinated.
I’ve learned that simple living is the best kind of living. That it makes you cherish each day and live it to the fullest. Even if it’s just staying home and enjoying the solitude.
