By the Riverside

Success – the ability to spend an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it. ~ Anon

Thinking about relaxing in that hammock last summer, as the snow falls and the city declares a “snow emergency.” Isn’t it funny that I would rather be successfully swinging in the shade by the riverside than be snow-blowing my driveway?

  1. I share your vision…although…the snow is calling me to get out and play…hmmmm…

  2. That is exactly what I need right now… in a hammock relaxing by the riverside. Lovely image! 🙂

  3. Very enticing

  4. Right at the moment, that scene has a lot of appeal!

  5. And here we are in NM, wishing for some of that snow. Just a bit more. (Like Blogavich’s hair—is that how you spell his name—why does he have so much and some men so little?) (It’s late, I should go to bed as I doubt that makes any sense at all.) 8)

    Sigh. Nice view and nice peaceful image.

  7. We too are in the midst of a ‘snow emergency’. Lots of beautiful fluffy white stuff…but it does make me miss summer. Thanks for the reminder!!!
