Lazy Days Of Summer


Okay ,  I know it isn’t summer yet but the weather tells other wise lol .

This is how I spend most of my days in this nice summer weather .


Not much goes on here really so don't get to excited  lol . We have our moments were things are a bit shook up but not to often . Being retired has its ups and downs , more ups then downs though , especially when you live in the country with all kinds of nature around you and if your like me usually have camera in hand just in case .  Just wish Papa could retire now but someone has to put bread and butter on the table  and to be honest it was his idea, he said to me before we moved here that I can retire if I want to and we both agreed I would and be the home maker  , works for me . We both are homebody's and don't go  to very many places , but when we do it’s a real treat .I find there are times where I seem to be taking photos of the same thing , birds, flowers , butterfly’s and so on but as we all know nature changes so much and I don't want to miss capturing it. We have times where Papa is building something in his shop or we go to antique shops to see what we can find  ,all though we are running out of space to put things but that's the way it goes . We spend days on our porches  in our gardens or going for walks with our Miggy  and we all know Miggy is the sunshine of Our Cove and Harley , well she makes an appearance every now and then . All this I wouldn’t change for anything in the world .

                                            Simple Country Life but a rewarding  one !

                                Until next time , hope you all have a great day !

Great view of a good life...what is the book? Have been discussing library books today with other bloggers. And I also follow blogs of writers.

I know, I know! We have been retired for some years now and the birds and wild animals get a lot of our attention.I sure did feel guilt'y for about a year for not working but I got over it. LOL

Great way to spend the day! I agree, it would be so nice for those we spend out lives with to just stop and actually be able to spend it with us. Hope he can retire one day soon!

I love your view of life, and you're right, it is a rewarding one--And it's why I so enjoy stopping by to see what you've been up too!! :-)

Enjoy your day!

Elaine, being retired is a great life and Grenville and are also work in the yard and gardens and make time for day trips. We spent a lot of time working on this old home after buying it and still work on it. We also enjoy going for walks and reading and just sharing our lives. Good for you and Papa in doing the same and hope he can retire before not too long.
