Lazy Days

I love when the weather changes & we can enjoy sitting out on the patio outback. It's a favourite place to hang out in the warm weather, or even the slightly crisp weather of fall, just not so great when it's pouring buckets in the winter because you're likely to get a bit damp yourself.

There's something so wonderfully peaceful about sitting out there & staring at the clouds, or watching the trees. The wild rabbits that live beyond or fence, or the occasional tame chicken who seems to find it's way to our back gate. I spent a lot of time out there in June... Sometimes it gives you too much time to think, & other times the warm breeze is like a well loved quilt that wraps itself around you.

I love the wind, do you? My Jayder Bayder isn't a fan of it, in fact he's not ashamed to tell you it scares him, but I really do love it. I love when it's a warm wind & dries my laundry faster or bathes me in warmth, I'm often very cold. I love when it's a really cool wind & your cheeks get all ready & chilled when you're walking on the beach. I even love the whistling wind on the beach that can be so deafening you can't hear the person standing next to you.

It's the sun that draws me out onto this little area the most though. It's warmth & cheeriness. I like to smile & laugh, & can't truly stand the feeling of being sad or miserable. The sun makes me smile. Watching the boys jump on the trampoline & laugh until they can't breathe, or share stories that they make up on the whim, jokes that only they understand the meaning of, or laying there watching the clouds with them.. all of it makes me smile.
