Soon my lilacs will bloom, after that the hostas come back and the ferns too... Then in June i get the most beautiful Peonies! Everyday I bring bunches upon bunches into my house, to work, to my friends.
All winter long when the days grow colder and longer by the minute. When nothing but snow and ice cover every inch, I find solace in the fact that someday I will by out in my back yard, swaying in my hammock, reading books and then chasing after my cat. Breathing in peonies and roses, naps in the grass on shabby chic sheets. Lounging in my swim suit catching the rays, sipping cold water and hearing the distant mowing of lawns and chirping of birds. Having friends over, grilling, playing badminton and laughing and laughing.
Just thinking about this makes me so giddy.
I am blessed to be a homeowner.
Some days when things go bad around the house and I wish I had a landlord to call I remember that it is a dream of most people to own their own home. I did that.
Not everyone has a roof over their head. I have that.
So I am grateful and thankful for my little house and my beautiful yard. sans landlord.
