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!

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!

First Day of Spring

Today at 6:29 Eastern time, spring equinox begins! With it comes the hope of warmer days and signs of life everywhere. I love this time of year.

The only thing is, once spring arrives, I am completely intolerant of any more winter-like weather! I expect that to be over! I love how fast everything gets green and how quickly buds appear from one day to the next. I am going to sit in my hammock chair to celebrate spring, regardless of the weather!

Last Day of Winter

Today is it, the last day of winter! So, I say, okay Old Man Winter you have ONE day left! But, tomorrow, it’s time to step down. You had your turn!

It’s time for Miss Spring to move in and start warming things up. It’s time for her to start coloring up our landscapes and yards. Then it will be time for me to put out my best hammock chairs in the trees. Then I can sit down and watch the world around me turn green!

There are piles of snow in my backyard, thanks to Stella. I always liked that name, but at the moment, not so much! The warm weather earlier this month and last, although unseasonal, it had me ready for spring early this year!

Then, bam, a huge snow storm came along, and now my Algoma hammock stand is bare once again! I actually had a hammock in it a couple times this month! So, now, I am just praying for sunshine and warmer weather to melt these piles of snow away. On a positive note, it should make a beautiful green lawn this spring!

St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s Day to you and may the luck of the Irish be with you! I have to be honest, I have yet to drink a green beer. However, I am going to lay in my green mayan hammock!

I am going to soak up some sunny rays of gold and possibly, I will find my own pot of gold…but I doubt it! I am going to just enjoy this magical day and that I am lucky enough to be able to enjoy it!

Stella is the March Nor’easter wreaking havoc on the east. It seems we always need to be reminded that winter is still here, even though we had spring last week!

My poor Pawleys Island hammock was left out again this winter! I am a bad hammock owner. Luckily this hammock is well made, with durable weather resistant polyester rope, but this is really pushing it!

What happened to our spring preview? Old Man Winter won’t let go of his grip on us yet, so he sent some snow our way today. Perhaps he was jealous of Spring and how we were all going on about how beautiful she was and how happy she made us!

Well, regardless, it won’t be long now until I am hanging my Pawleys Island hammock between the maple trees. I am looking forward to watching spring life begin in the back yard…the buds, and the birds!
