Hangin' Out on Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by At Home With Books.

I took a picture of my calendar page for June... my Cool, Man gave me this Calendar for my birthday and every month has a new place for the two of us to "Hang Out Together". This picture came out fuzzy, but isn't it cute?  The thought is even cuter.  What a guy!!

This is where we hang out for real. "His -n- Hers" chairs just inside his shop, almost like a tailgate party, only much quieter. This one time we realized at the same time that we'd been sitting for a really long time without anything to say and we started laughing at our complete lack of thoughts. I laughed so hard I was crying 'cause I really wasn't thinking about anything at all, and he was thinking about budding flowers, which was just hilarious. Well, at the time, I guess. You had to be there, maybe.

And here's our View. Who wouldn't just sit and stare at that?!  It's very therapeutic!!  Lol. There are three mini horses in that field on the other side of the blackberry-covered fence. We'll have a bumper crop of blackberries this year. (We say that like we're growin' 'em on purpose. I gotta claim somethin' livin' in the country with the opposite of a green thumb!!) I make a pretty mean freezer blackberry jam with almost no sugar since I wait 'til they're ripe.

*Sigh*  This picture just reminds me of relaxing and lettin' it all go.............


  1. Ha! I think the best part of being married for a long time is being comfortable in each other's silence.

  2. I love to sit and relax outside! I wish I had your view though! Enjoy!

  3. How lucky you are... we have a view of other people's houses! But there are lots of villages and country areas nearby.

  4. Sounds like you were having a meditative moment--and what an ideal view for it!

  5. I would love a view that included mini horses! But that rose covered porch in the June picture is pretty nice too.

    Here's my Snapshot

  6. Lovely view! Once blackberries start growing they don't need a lot of encouragement, do they? The house I grew up in had hillsides full of blackberries around it, and the whole extended family would come out to pick them in August (we lived on the coast where they ripened later than where we are at in the valley now). My favorite thing is how they smell like pie on a really hot day when they start to bake in the sun.
