Leisure Happens

with 4 comments

I may describe most of our activities as exclusively focused on one project or another around here, but our days are not entirely void of occasional leisurely pursuits.

IMG_iP1615eFrom the driver’s seat of my car as I approached the house yesterday after work, I noticed instantly that Cyndie had put up one of our hammocks. I wondered if I had failed to pay attention to her plans to host visitors. Why else would she be putting out our “accessories?”

Inside, I spotted a string of horse-shaped lights she had hung across the mantel over the fireplace, and figured something must definitely be up.

She came in from the barn and said that it was such a nice day with a wonderful summery wind blowing, she put up the hammock for us to lounge and enjoy. It was for us to use! Imagine that.

I asked about the string of horses on the mantel. She told me those had been up since her workshop two weeks ago.

Color me oblivious.

    • It IS beautiful, and extra special since it is genuine and gifted to us by people we love so dearly!

  2. Hey John! Hammocks look great and relaxing! Question: what kind of computer do you have there? The height x width ratio seems different to me; perhaps it is just the angle of the shot? Also, what is the round device on the edge? Is it some sort of track-ball mouse? Ward

    • It is the larger (15″) of the MacBook Pro line, which may explain the different ratio. You have also spotted our internet hot spot Verizon Jetpack, which I am hoping to bolster with a signal booster that is due to arrive tomorrow. We can get 4G LTE, but not regularly, and all signal levels are not stable enough to provide uninterrupted connections.
