Porch Time

For the past few weeks or so, the weather has been absolutely beautiful where I live, on the Eastside of Seattle. We have had several days of clear blue skies and temperatures well into the 70s…for any area it would be considered good weather, but especially for this area.

One of the things I like most about days like these, are the evenings. I have done my best to spend time each day outside, and especially in the evenings. There is something peaceful about sitting on the porch and just enjoying the sunshine, getting to spend time in God’s creation. From reading, writing, taking a nap, or even just listening to the sounds of the birds and playing with my dog, it just feels great to be outside. During these times I spend time thinking and reflecting on many different things. I often just let my mind wander, for better or worse, and see where my thoughts take me. It is great having a time for reflection and relaxation, not to mention getting to soak up some good old Vitamin D!

This post does not have much of a main point or purpose, I just wanted to briefly mention that I enjoy these times and greatly appreciate them. I have been reminded to be intentional about taking time each day to relax and just enjoy life. Below are a couple pictures of my time this evening, including a picture of the writing of this post…which I am doing outside!
