Lazy Sunday

That's a lie.  I worked in the garden for several hours this morning, did some housework, then drove an hour with my cousin to watch the Packers/Bears game with my sister and brother-in-law.  We are all Cheeseheads, having grown up in Wisconsin, and the Packers won, so it was a good day (Go Pack Go!)

By the time I got home this evening, I was pooped.  The new hammock that we put up between the shade trees was calling my name.

While not completely a lazy Sunday, I got to spend some time lounging in the new hammock in the lovely 80 degree weather.  I took the time to appreciate my beautiful garden that surrounded me as well as my many other blessings.  Too often I get stressed with work and life.  It is always good to take time a reflect on what a good life it is...and I can't think of a better place to do that than in a hammock in the garden on a peaceful Sunday evening.


  1. I think many of us often get a little obsessed with the work that is to be done in our outdoor spaces and forget to enjoy the benefits when we get the chance. Feet up, trowels down, that's just the right attitude and altitude to maintain a better balance!
