Just is not as great as my old deck. Today is the first day I've tried to soak up some rays out here. I guess the one good thing about it is there is a large tree providing some filter so my skin is not burning. Another good thing? I brought my wind chimes so I am enjoying a familiar noise. The wind is gently blowing so if I close my eyes it's like I am well....anywhere I want to be! Beach?? Nah. I guess really this is where I want to be and this deck while humble is quite nice. The chirping birds are delighted today which brings joy to my soul! I think I will choose to do some chirping also. Quietly. I don't want to draw too much attention to myself with all the gawking neighbors driving past.....which really is the only part of this deck that I don't care for. Hell, maybe I will inspire someone to kick off there shoes and ignore the world around them and take in God's good pleasures......A nice spring day! One of the very greatest delights no matter where you are at! Enjoy, friends!! Peace and love to you!
