I love this time of year when we can sit outside in our favorite lawn chairs. Sometime after supper when the dishes are done and the work of the day is behind us...

When we can just sit with a glass of iced tea, minus our phones...

Just relax and enjoy the chirping of the crickets and watching as the firelies come out...

Having someone to enjoy the moment makes it even better...

...but even if you are alone,
it's a time to regroup and feed the inner part of us that needs DOWNTIME.


  1. Downtime with Nature is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves. Great post!

  2. Your yard is lovely. Who wouldn't want to spend time there just chillin'? The picture of the 2 little kids is just too cute.

  3. I love porch sitting...try to get in a few minutes everyday.....sunrise and sunset are the best!!


  4. We all need some downtime. It seems our lives are so busy and often stressful. Taking time to sit and relax in our garden or on our porch is therapeutic.
    Thank you for another great post Joycee :)

  5. Amen, I love downtime, just don't seem to take enough time for it!

  6. I need to work on that type of "downtime" as I spend mind attached to the computer. YIKES!!

  7. I'm with you Joycee..I love sitting on the porch either reading or just enjoying the view. We have a tiny back porch at the moment but if all goes well this summer we'll have our screened in porch so we can enjoy the 'sit' without the bugs! For now though we're enjoying what we have. I love the pictures. Have a wonderful day...Maura :)
