The rain finally stopped. But it was so windy and gloomy, and I ate too much for lunch, that, truthfully all I really felt like doing was stringing up one our camping hammocks and taking a nap!
Just driving to the post office has become a treat, and I try to take different routes to see different sites! In my own backyard, the lawn is a beautiful bright green. I have a new Algoma Hammocks hammock that I have been enjoying the beauty from!
I was lucky enough to make it to the Washington, DC cherry blossom festival this year..two times! First, a few days early, and then, a few days late for peak bloom. This peak bloom is a tricky thing, affected all by the weather, of course, and the peak is actually only a day or so.
Well, I was just happy to see beautiful blooms, regardless, and enjoy their beauty. There were so many blossoms on the ground, it looked like a pink carpet. I just wanted to lay down on it. Or better yet, I would just love to take one of my travel hammocks and string it up between two trees along the tidal basin!
But the power washer makes it beautiful again! Next, I will want to find a new piece of furniture this year. I am thinking about placing a hammock chair stand in one of the corners? That would be a unique addition to my “outdoor room.”
I believe this may have been the nicest day of the year so far? I am loving this beautiful day! I had to just soak up the sun in my rope hammock for a couple hours this afternoon!
I even got a bit of a sunburn and I’m actually happy about it! I know the sun isn’t good for my skin…but it sure is good for my soul!
This was a happy Easter day for me! It started with sunrise service at 6am. It was a beautiful morning, even if it was a bit cold. Then a wonderful, long-overdue run on the rail trail to birds singing and sunshine!
Then a nice afternoon meal with my loving family and mother. I bought my Mom a beautiful small Byer of Maine Brazilian hammock this year, hoping she will rest in between working like a crazy woman in her garden this spring and summer!
I am remembering years past to when my boys would love to find hidden Easter eggs that we painted. I would get up earlier than them and hide them around our outside. I tried to give them a challenge to find them, as we had lots of fun spots!
One time I put one behind the pillow of a quilted hammock and no one found it and I forgot it….at least for a week or so! After that I was more careful about retrieving all the hidden eggs!
