Then…well, I am not sure what to blame it on. Maybe the weather? But, here, I am, weeding again! Yuk! The weeds are “thick as theives” too. Then, I will be mulching immediately this time! I hope I learned a lessson and do not repeat this next year. Later, this evening, as I lay resting in my Mayan hammock, exhausted, no doubt, I am going to write this is my garden journal. I just keep practicing at this!
Also, I wish you all, a day of rest and being able to spend time doing whatever you love to do, with the special people in your life. And, lastly, maybe you are lucky enough to even receive a wonderful gift, such as a rope hammock, to enjoy all summer!
My family has five hammock chairs around our big maple tree. We sit in there, a bit hidden, under the shelter of the branches. We love our special family time spent here. It’s shady and cool in the heat of the summer too!
Yesterday morning I saw that one of the branches was laying on the ground. Did it even storm? No! It must just be too heavy from the rain, and the long branch couldn’t hold itself up any more. Not a complete tragedy, of course, as we still have privacy in the backyard. But we will miss that full branch! Thank God for our hammock chair hideout!
Today was just a perfect day for me! I knew the weather was going to be wonderful today, so I rolled out of bed at 6 am for a great five mile run. Then I spent a lot of time outdoors, honestly, just sunbathing in my rope hammock, chatting with my best, but far away, friend on the phone.
This evening ended with an outdoor dinner with our fun friends. Now, I am just hanging on my patio, counting all my blessings!
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.
I came across this picture today and wanted to share a memory of him, knowing my fellow dog lovers would understand. He enjoyed laying in this hammock chair, with his blanket, just swinging from its hammock chair stand in the corner.
Here again to talk about relaxing! Of course, I will start out by saying that an obvious way to relax is to plop down in a hammock and take a nap. But there are also hammock chairs, which are just as cozy, and work better in certain situations.
For example, you live in an apartment, have no yard, but you do have a balcony, and love being outside. Hang a hammock chair out there! You will love yourself for it!
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that occurs on the final Monday of May every year.It is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War.
By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. As we honor we these people today, we can be grateful for the freedom that we have because these brave people gave their lives for it. Of course, this day typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, so I was celebrating this afternoon with my patriotic Bliss Hammocks hammock!
From time to time, I will be sharing with you, ways to relax and to help you enjoy the quality moments we can easily overlook in the day to day “busy-ness” of our lives. Oh, and did I mention that I am, absolutely, a hammock lover?
I am wondering if Mother Nature is bipolar, as it is a common illness many good people suffer with. She is extremely hot one day and freezing the next! Or maybe that is just a woman in general..? I can say that since I am one!
It is so windy and cold today that I can’t even dream of laying in my hammock. It is even in a wooden hammock stand, which is sturdy, but I still feel I would be blown away!
