It's a Tuff Life

What a beautiful day! (finally!). It was so lovely, I stole some time to hang out in my hammock.

What do I see when I'm in our backyard, just lounging? Well, this:

And this:

The back of the house:

And a look off into the distance:

All this was accompanied by the sounds of birds and a soft breeze. Perfect. The only thing that would have been better is if my hammock had a cup holder for a wine glass! I'm going to have to look into that.


  1. Ahhhh, that looks so nice!

    Hm, you may have an innovative idea there, with the wine glass holder! I'll be happy to test any ideas you may have. :)

    Meanwhile, I think I need to get a chaise for the deck so I can snooze with my wine and a good book.

  2. What a lovely day! We're stuck inside with teh flu. Blech.

  3. juanuchis - a chaise, a glass of wine and a good book all sound heavenly.

    BB - NO! Drats. Feel better soon - call me if you need anything, okay?

  4. Oh, now I NEED to set my hammock up!

    It's been languishing by the shed for a few weeks, and I guess I'm going to have to take care of it myself. :-(

    Looks like you have your own paradise!

  5. OMG! I'm on your Pit Stop list!

    Of course, I had to look, since I was on Tammie's list.

    Wow. I'm flattered. And definitely not worthy.
    I always look at blog rolls, I've found so many interesting sites that way.

    Wow. just wow.

    It's funny how the little things can make you smile. Thanks. :-)

  6. OH, and I was at a crafts show that had a metal garden stake that was twisted to hold a wine glass - sort of of a spiral coil shape and you could stick in the ground next to your hammock - very cool!

  7. Okay - last comment, I swear.
    ETW - try these:

  8. k - thanks for the tip and link. I bookmarked it so I can order one if I can't find one locally. That would work perfectly!

  9. What an excellent way to spend your weekend!

    I am dealing with Angry Sick Husband right now.

    Quick! What can I give him to knock him out?!

  10. Stew - you tried to warn me...

    Renn - a dose of benedryl and a shot of bourbon? I think that's nicer than a baseball bat.

  11. It is gorgeous outside... finally!!!

  12. Glad you finally found your good weather... I'm no off to bed. OMG what a day I will have to blog about soon...

  13. The last one is lovely. The mountains look so very cool especially with a breeze.

  14. Ron - glad you're home. I'm sure you have some tales to tell. I can't wait!

    honeywine - It's called "The Mountain State" for a reason! Yip. Come visit, it's beautiful here (and I'm a TRUE Southerner - AL and GA.)
