A Saturday Afternoon

Springtime is in full force in the SF Bay Area.  The weather is the perfect combination of warmth, sunshine, and humidity.  Out here in the backyard on a Saturday afternoon, there’s a noticeable absence of neighborhood power tools and you can hear the bird songs and calls.  Bugs and the occasional butterfly flit across the yard.

DJ is venturing outdoors more now that the weather has improved.  He now knows how to let himself in and out of the house.  He’s busy bug-hunting as I write this.  Sam is sunning herself while Nina is napping indoors.  The peace and quiet is wonderful.

Ivan’s spruced up the yard for summertime enjoyment.  The pool is sparkling and ready to use; the grass and bushes are trimmed; the patio furniture and umbrella are out, and the grills are ready to deliver a delicious meal.  Life is good!


  1. Sounds like such a serene afternoon as you described it with the sounds of nature all around you! Also sounds like you are all set for summer fun, which is great since Memorial Day is just around the corner, which is always the start of summer in my books :) Enjoy!


  2. Dot, sounds like a great day...exactly how I'd like to spend a day; relaxing and vegging out!

  3. i have missed you---your world sounds so delightful--enjoy that grilling!

  4. Sounds wonderful! I can see the pool in my mind and the blue sparkling water is calling me....!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy every minute! I went flower shopping today, so am getting my summer on, too! Love you!
