As the Day Ends


Last evening was one of those all to rare experiences which put the period at the end of the day in a truly enjoyable and relaxing fashion.

The Pool as Evening Falls
July 24, 2017
I had not realized the amusement park-like pace that Chris and I had been on until we were lounging on floaties in the pool with a glass of wine for the first time all season. Yes, it is late-July and we only last evening found time to lounge in the pool and enjoy some time to ourselves.

Admittedly, the weather has been questionable, we have been traveling, and we have been busy--but lounging in the pool is something that I look forward to enjoying. 

Chris and I are fortunate, we have been able to carve out a piece of serenity amid the cacophony of the world around us to enjoy the ending or the beginning of the day. Last evening the stars and schedules finally aligned to allow us to decompress without struggling to get everything done. The late evening ending thunderstorm was but the icing on the cake as we both enjoy watching the storms rage around us.

I hope for more such days as the summer winds down because I can already feel summer losing its grip as the temperature this morning was 64 degrees and cool with the humidity finally falling into the comfort range.

Evenings like that are to be enjoyed and then treasured.
