Lazy Saturday

On lazy Saturdays I sit on my porch with the pooch and a cup of Joe. Sometimes I sketch and sometimes I just sit and listen to the birds or admire the flowers. This is a view from my porch, looking out onto the street. The large stone lantern was made by my neighbor's father, given to my parents when they built the house.

Thanks Tracy! Yes, we're lucky to have such wonderful neighbors (they have a similar lantern on their property as well!) and colorful views year round.

Thanks Lynn! But I have to admit, I think Alberta is a little slice of heaven as well! It's so beautiful there!
