When the milder weather comes to stay, I want to spend all my free time outdoors. In May, when Summer is in view but the month is a busy cacophony of tasks that must be completed to close out the school year, the front porch lures me for moments of quiet relaxation. On these days, the chance to sit in my rocking chair, smell the violets, and see all the flowers in bloom feels like a quiet sanctuary where I can rest my busy mind and re-charge for the tasks that lie ahead.
I slept nearly 11 hours last night and woke up this morning to sunlight and time to linger over my coffee and flowers on the front porch. That’s happy!
