Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Taking Time to Enjoy!

I've been doing a lot of this and that around the river house today to prepare to head back to the cabin (woo hoo!). But Mountain Man reminded me to take a moment to enjoy my surroundings, and I am so grateful he did! 

Here are some of the things I came across...

angel trumpet
bromeliad, up close

bougainvillea

sea grapes

hummingbirds and butterflys love this but I can't remember the name

cool picture of our fish pond

a succulent, unsure of the name
society garlic

night blooming cereus, the beginning

 
For a while, I sat in the swing by the pond, watching the fish (see photo above), listening to the chimes sing gently with the wind, feeling the warm sun on my face, and just being.  Beautitul day! 

Do you have a favorite place you go to enjoy your surroundings?

Thanks for reading my blog, see you tomorrow,
Lise

my fav spot is on my front porch and my hammock, where I can see and hear my little world . Malcolm
