Some Things I Love To Do

Sit on the Front Porch

Watch the Birds in the Tree and Photograph Them

Look at and Listen to the Creek

Drive to Richmond to See My Granddaughter

Stop atop Afton Mt. with Bud to Look at the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia

 Enjoy the Bursting Color from the Redbuds

Do Make Up with Eloise

  Play Dress Up with My Girl in the High Heels I gave Her for Her Birthday

These are just a few of the things I love to do in My World.

  16. Thats a not a bad list of "good things to do" - as the cooler half of the year is approaching "sitting by a log fire" is a suggested addition.

    But, not hearing bad new on the TV would head the list.

  23. OMGosh, you live in Heaven! There is something so magical about your front porch and your property too that just draws my heart and soul in ♥ Love that creek too! I love it all!

    This looks so much like my Gramma's homes in the mountains of Tennessee where we used to go and visit ♥

  24. I'd have to vote for sitting on the front porch, although since we moved we now sit on the back deck and it's just as nice. xox
