Byer of Maine Brazilian hammockI cannot believe it! My little boy is graduating tonight! It seems as if I just put him on the school bus for kindergarten, and I blinked! Oh, how bittersweet it is when they grow up.

You are so proud of them and happy for them, yet you miss them and the past that is gone. It seems like yesterday that I was snuggling with him in our Brazilian hammock, reading him his favorite stories.

Brazilian Hammock

purple houseThis morning, as we are taking a last walk along the promenade, I see a pink Brazilian Hammock on the porch of a purple house! How pretty it was!

As I said, those colors look great in Cape May! I would love to just crawl in that hammock and look out at the ocean!

Yellow Mayan Hammock

yellowmayanThis morning on our walk, I saw a beautiful yellow Mayan hammock on the porch of a beautiful sage green house, trimmed in  white gingerbread trim. It was a beautiful picture-perfect setting, with bright purple pansies in pots all over the porch and down the sides of the stairs.

I wanted a picture so bad, but I didn’t want to be a stalker! There were people sitting at a cozy little round table sipping coffee or tea, and probably eating a delicious scone too! So I just took a picture with my mind…

Easter Sunday

Brazilian hammockHe is risen! Praise God! I am thankful for my life He has given to me!  I attended sunrise service this morning. It is such a spiritual time for me. It was a bit chilly too, but the sun did peek out for us!

I am thankful for this day to spend with my family. We are going to my sister’s house, who I rarely see, even though we live close.  That is a little sad, but life isn’t perfect, and we love each other. In fact, I love her so much I gave her a Brazilian hammock last year!

Windy March

Wow, March has been a lion lately! So very windy! I do not care for wind. The only time I like it is when it blows all my leaves away in the fall.

If I had my Mayan hammock out in the tree, this wind would have it so tangled up and twisted! I suppose March is known for being windy, so I will wait until April to get my back yard ready for spring.

Snow Day

Hammock in house with pillowsWe are in the middle of a snowstorm here today, called Saturn. When did they start naming winter storms? So, this means the teenagers and the hubby are home today! This means a day inside  hanging out, watching movies, and cooking and eating!

Lots of unexpected winter fun in the middle of a work and school week. But I do enjoy my “alone” time, so I will enjoy that tomorrow, hopefully. I am starting a new book, Running Within, that I plan to read in the Brazilian hammock I  hung up in the den, because I can’t stand waiting for spring any longer!

Goodbye February

Paradiso Brazilian hammockGoodbye to you, February.  I am sorry to be honest, but I am just not going to miss you. I am not a fan of your short days, the wind, snow, and cold that you bring.

I understand you have a special spot in the calendar. But I need to move on to longer days with more light, warmer temperatures, and spring! I want to put a beautiful, bright, striped Brazilian hammock  under my old maple trees, so I bid you farewell..until next year.

Looking For A Robin

Mayan hammockI love the day when I see the first robin each spring! I am expecting it any day now.

But I am always pushing the season at the end of winter. I tried, I really did, but I just have trouble liking winter! Now, I am just over it and ready to move on to getting my Mayan hammock in my favorite tree!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Today is the day we set aside as a day to be thankful for our blessings and spend time with our families. Tradition, dating back to the Pilgrims and the Indians, causes us to associate a big feast with today, as they did. Well, I say they caused a lot of work for the rest of us to come! Really, just kidding, but I think giving thanks and spending special family time should be a part of daily life.

The more thanks we give, the more we have to be thankful for. I am thankful, every single day, for my family, most of all, then friends, and my home. I am thankful that my home is a peaceful haven where I can be relaxed and safe. Speaking of relaxing, that will be done in a beautiful Mexican hammock, later today, after I feel like a stuffed turkey!

Strong Little Hammock!

I am so proud of my strong little portable hammock, that I accidentally left out in the storm last night! The water was flying up on the deck at high tide from the bay below, and the wind was whipping at 35-45 miles per hour! There was my strong little Bliss Hammocks travel hammock, strapped to the deck railings with tree straps, whipping around and around, and I was not going out in that once I realized it!

So, this morning, a new day has arrived, wind has died down, rain is over, and there was my poor little hammock, all twisted up, and wet, but truly, “no worse for wear”! I am so thankful! I untwisted it, and now it can dry out so I can use it later today, or this evening to watch the sunset!
