Weekly Photo Challenge – One

One Beautiful Florida Sky

One Beautiful View from My Hammock

Yesterday was my first day of vacation and I planned to clean the house, finish Christmas shopping, finish decorating, clean the bird cage. I did get the little tree moved and lit, put some more ornaments on the big tree, ran a load of dishes, swept and mopped, caught up on some of the things I wasn’t able to get done between work and rehearsal.

And then it warmed up enough to take the parrot outside. She loves being outside (and so do I). While I was cleaning her cage I noticed my long-ignored hammock was a mess – covered in leaves. So I cleared it off and remembered I still had one more chapter to catch up on in the book I’m reading (one chapter a day). What better place to do that than my hammock?

The Princess wanted to join me.

I set the timer and told my son I’d be back in fifteen minutes. He saw me with a book in my hand, noted the hammock, the pups, and the gorgeous view, and said “No, you won’t.”
