The past few weeks I have been in a funk. Tired of the non-stop rainy cloudy weather. We haven’t seen much sun lately just a lot of rain. This morning was no different when I woke up to rain once again. This is unusual weather to say the least. This time of the year is when some of our best weather happens in Minnesota. It’s usually warm but not too warm. Sunny but not too hot and usually nice breezes. This morning I took my coffee and book out on the porch to read for a while before it was time to get ready for church. The rain fell at a steady pace and didn’t look like it would clear up.
After a while the rain quit and the clouds began clearing. I headed off to church and came home and fixed dinner for my family. After dinner my husband and I attacked my “Honey Do List”. On my agenda for the day was to finally put our dock in the lake. It was about a month overdue. The added advantage of procrastination was that the water was much warmer today than it would have been a month ago. My husband said he always has such a good feeling after we put our old dock in once again. We were going to replace a few years after we bought our home but that was nearly 20 years ago and we’ve grown attached to it.
After we finished putting in the dock I took my camera around our yard to take a few pictures. Lately I’ve had trouble being content with my surroundings. Always wanting to be somewhere else. We live in a beautiful place with many things to be thankful for and others would say to me stop your whining, “I wish I could have what you have.” I’m working on a better attitude . Here are a few of the treasures that I found in my own backyard.
