The Hammock

Today I am thankful for my hammock.  It was my Mothers Day gift from my husband.  I am thankful it is there waiting for me when I have 5 minutes to escape.  I like to lay and look up into the trees and let my mind clear out.  It's almost as if the breeze can blow my cares away, or at least blow them into an orderly pile I can deal with, the way it blows old leaves into little piles that are easily swept up.

  1. Ingrid, would it surprise you if I said my little escape is my backyard too? I go sit on my lounge chair under my trellis and soak up the sun for a few minutes. I got my lounge chairs last Mother's Day! It is my favorite place to sit and think of nothing. I'm glad you have your hammock. And I must try the banana non ice-cream. It does sound yummy....just a little leary about the peppermint part. Thanks!
