Do you find yourself yearning for the simpler, slower way of life from days gone by? Do you prefer listening to birds chirping or an IPOD? Do you find yourself wishing for a time when we moved at a slower pace, when politeness and civility were the norm? Did you love The Waltons, Andy and Aunt Bee, Charlie Brown and Lucy? Join with me then and share your thoughts with others who yearn for gentler times in this fast paced world we live in.

A Do Nothin' Day of Bliss
Sometimes if feels good just to do nothing! Just kick your feet up on the shady porch, sip a cold ice tea, feel the breeze and watch the birds at the feeder. I did just that yesterday, thumbing through my garden and home magazines, eating bon bons and watching the world go by. The smell of the lily of the valley scented the entire porch and the birds were having a wonderful time eating seed and suets. We even have robins eating the suets - something I hadn't seen in years past. Speaking of robins, we have 3 babies up high in a nest on the back porch light. We have been trying to keep from using that entrance when at all possible, Mom gets so upset with us. She flies to a nearby tree or the gutter of our garage and screeches at us as the babies chirp away. We have nests there every year. I wonder if it's the same parents? Anyway they are enjoyable to hear. Hope you're keeping cool and enjoying a peaceful weekend.
