A Quiet Peaceful Evening

The sun is almost down and I'm sitting on my deck enjoying the end of a beautiful day. Rain dribbled down this morning but the afternoon was gorgeous. We've had so much rain lately that sunshine is greatly appreciated. A little breeze is playing through the trees and air conditioners are humming. The evening is quiet and peaceful. I'm relaxing in my swing and taking pleasure in the summer evening. May you all have peace and rest this evening. We never know what tomorrow will bring.

@RubyHawk I did go out to get the laundry off the line at least. I have to start getting out more.

It was a very sunny day here. It's peaceful here too. We are watching the Hallmark channel most of this evening.

We have a perfect day today. After the heavy rain the temperature has dropped and a nice breeze is coming inside from the open windows.

@RubyHawk We usually have a nice breeze every night even in summer. We live close to the Alps, the cool air comes down from the high mountains.

@LadyDuck That sounds heavenly. We have very few if any cool breezes during the summer

You have some beautiful word images for your lovely afternoon on the swing. We had a lot of rain overnight. So much so there were still puddles on the road when I got up this morning. It's nice now with temps in the high 60's and light breeze. Very nice.

@RubyHawk I'm sure we do. Summer is only just starting. I woke to beautiful blue skies, which gave way to clouds and patches of blue, which have now turned gray and look like rain. I hope you have a wonderful day and it isn't too hot.

I'm jealous. I've always wanted a porch swing. As a kid, i would always go straight to them at kmart in the summer and swing while my mom shopped the aisle near by. Lol. Sounds like a good time there tonight. Enjoy.

Don't you have a place to put up a swing? I couldn't do without one. It doesn't take up a lot of room.

@RubyHawk no. As the management here that took over a few years ago put nothing but 2 chairs and a small table is allowed on the porch. Not that everyone listens to that, but we dont like to break the rules as we cant afford to lose our home. Plus it cost few hundred..

@Courtlynn Wow, I'm glad our management has no such rules I have a swing, table and chairs on my deck. We can't have grills. That's the only thing forbidden. I wouldn't break any rules either.

Yes one thing I like about the peace and quiet is that you have time to actually think.. and in the quiet moment you have made many life decisions, and I think that's what everyone is missing. You need that peace every now and then..

The rain ended today but its in the forecast for tomorrow. But we need the rain to fill up the lake so we'll have water this summer.

@RubyHawk I have three new ponds but they will dry up soon, I hope. Do you use the water to drink?

@andriaperry Most of our water comes from lake Lanier. At times we don't have enough rain and the lake gets low. After so much rain this spring we shouldn't have a water shortage this year.

@RubyHawk I don"t get out often. I don't have a swing but on the back porch I do have a glider. I think I am going outside tomorrow to sit on the porch swing or maybe the front porch on regular pot h furniture. I think that sounds divine!
