Getting There…

Well, between rainy days, and days I’m available, I’ve been working on my patio! What a mess it is every spring…the joy of living near trees!

But I love my big, beautiful shade trees even if they leave a mess for me to clean up! Ive been getting the leaves cleared up…next is power washing! I hung my Pawleys Island hammock chair in the stand and am taking a rest!

Its that time of year when I get so excited to get my back yard cleaned up and ready for spring and summer! I especially love the part where I get my hammocks out!

My favorite hammock is the cacoon tent! It hangs under my trees in the shade and I feel like I could spend all day in there! I do believe I am going to need to add another, however, because everyone else in the family feels the same way!

Make Mother Happy

Mother’s Day is upon us in about three weeks! This gives us time to find our mothers a gift as special as they are, and, no, it is NOT another kitchen appliance!

For Heaven’s sake, don’t you think Mom needs to relax a little? How about one of her very own hammock swing chairs for her back yard or patio? There’s even a big chance you can find one in her favorite color! You will give her happiness for years to come!

My Patio Needs Love

My C hammock stand stands lonely on my patio, amidst the leaves left from the fall. They are packed in tight around it.

It is accompanied by left-over pots of long-dead annuals and an overturned wheelbarrow. A typical sight here in early spring, but I need to begin showing my patio some love today!

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is celebrated every year on the 22nd of April. In 1970, a Wisconsin senator, Gaylord Nelson, first conceived of the day. He was worried about the rate of industrialization, accompanied with the careless attitude people tend to have towards our environment. On the first Earth Day in 1970, 22 million Americans celebrated clean air, land, and water. In December 1970, 7 months after the first Earth Day celebration, the U.S. Congress created the Environmental Protection Agency to monitor and protect the environment.

Today, we are still striving to do so. One way is planting trees because they help the environment by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen. So, today, I am hanging out in my Pawleys Island hammock between two trees and feeling blessed to live on this beautiful planet!

LaLa Land

I went to see LaLa Land four times in the theater, the last time being a sing a long! Fun! I loved the movie and I love the soundtrack!

I am now hanging out in my Pawleys Island Hammock chair, listening to it on my phone. I’m not sure when I will get tired of it, but it hasn’t happened yet!

Bare Trees

The trees in my backyard are still bare…no leaves yet! I love the beauty of bare trees, so I’m not complaining.

I know it won’t be long until we have leaves. Then, no more bare trees until November or December. So, I try to just enjoy what I have at the moment. In fact,  I am getting more sun in my quilted hammock this late in the day, without the leaves blocking the sun!

Suntan in Spring

I am actually spending time out in the sun this afternoon, in shorts and a tank top! I am laying in my Bliss Hammocks quilted hammock in the back yard.

Hey, it’s never too early to get a base tan for the season! I mean, the white of my legs is blaring in the sun! I’d love to get a little color and prevent a sunburn later. I will remind the sun haters that a suntan is healthier than a sunburn!

Godfather

Lately my son and I have been interested in older movies that we’ve never seen. Luckily our old local theater has been showing a variety of them. This past weekend we saw Godfather.

As violent as it was, the movie score was just as beautiful! I have since downloaded the music in my iPod and I have been lazy this afternoon, laying around in my portable hammock in the den, listening to the music! It is so relaxing!

 

Slushy Hiking

Well, the snow is almost gone, but now we are left with mud, mud, and more mud! I had to get out for a hike, but it was a mess out there! It’s okay, though,  because it made me feel like a real hiker! Haha!

I put on my hiking boots, but they are so cute, I hate to get them so muddy! I know, I know, that’s ridiculous! That’s why I have them, right? I know! So out I went, boots and all. It was great to get some fresh air after a few days of hibernation. It was almost nice enough to string up a travel hammock…but I didn’t bring one! I guess I was too worried about getting my boots muddy!
