LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

We Love Lucy


Another topsy-turvy  week for us.  Thunderstorms brought heavy rain almost every afternoon.  As I've mentioned before, Lucy doesn't mind thunder and loves to sit on the screen porch and watch the rain.  She does not, however like to be outdoors in the rain.  I think it's the drying off part that she dislikes most.

Another thing she loves is the fireplace.  She loves it on winter mornings when we light it to take off the morning chill.  She also loves it in the summer because there is a spot of hardwood and the stone hearth for coolness.





I'm going to be taking another two-week break.  Our daughter is coming for a visit and we will ride the mountain roads come rain or shine.

It is wise to heed the words of those more articulate then I when you become so frustrated with the goings on in our world.  These fine words come from Ada Louise Huxtable, Pulitzer winner in 1970.

Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.

A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world.

Here's hoping that we all can have some of those jeweled balm days.  Heaven knows we have a sufficiently battered spirit.


HAVE A MOST WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL FATHERS

I'm so happy to hear that you'll be having time with your daughter. I hope that you get sunshine... and that Lucy doesn't have to go out in the rain.

Enjoy those back roads with your family and may they bring the balm you seek--at least for a while. See ya when you get back.

Just read this post a bit late and hope that you are enjoying your blog break. It's always good to get away and hope those mountain roads were lots of fun to explore.

Hope you're enjoying yourself with daughter and traveling those mtn roads. Would love to have similar time with my own dtr across the continent on the east coast from me. Love the saying about summer -- as I try to delude myself into believing for even a short time that all is right with the world.
