March Photo A Day - Where You Relax

I'm am truly sad that today is the last photo a day for me right now. Tomorrow starts the April Blogging A to Z challenge that as much as I am looking forward to, I am a little nervous about. I haven't a fully fleshed out theme not do I have more than five posts completed. I meant to work on them during March, but...meaning to and actually doing are to entirely different things.

Anyway, for today's photo I wanted to showcase a few places where I relax. I hope you enjoy!

This is my Adirondack chair that sits on my car port. We don't really use the carport for cars so it has turned into a patio of sorts. From this chair I survey my container garden, the girls playing in the yard and the squirrels scampering around looking for nuts. I like sitting out here in drinking tea in my jammies in the morning just as much as I like sitting here waiting for the girls to get home from school.

Our tent at a nearby campground. Not only is camping relaxing for me, but the girls too tell me how much better they feel camping. No stress, no phone, not internet, no T.V. Just us, a deck of cards and dead cow cooked over fire.

I've posted photos of Maine before. This one happens to be my favorite. One that I thought for the longest time had been lost when a certain husband (who shall not be named) crashed my computer. During a recent cleaning frenzy I happened upon a few CDs labeled "photos" and lo and behold, I actually had made a few back ups.

Going to Maine is like going home. Although things have changed since I lived there and spent my summers there, there is a feeling of peace, of relaxation, of love that I strongly associate with this small island cove. This is where my siblings and I played, where cousins met annually, where my family gathered, reminisced and loved, where my very best childhood memories took place.


  1. I love camping as well. It is one of my favorite things to do and I write about it in my "C" post. I wish I could camp every weekend:) Good luck in the A to Z Challenge.

    1. I wish I could camp every weekend too! I love it so much...of course I have never been "primitive" camping before so I'm not sure how I'd do without a bathroom, but still it is so peaceful!

  2. The Maine photo is beautiful. I can just picture it all from the photo and your description.

    And now, I want to go camping. :o)

    1. Thanks! I'm glad I inspired you to go camping!
