(see prior post)
I slept soundly on a daybed on the porch of my friend's cottage.
Waking before my two friends, I watched as the mist
moved steadily across the water toward sunrise.
and spent some time in silent thought, meditation and prayer.
The remaining hours of my two Lake Days were spent
doing two jigsaw puzzles, playing table games,
walking, eating casual meals, and chatting while sitting comfortably
on lawn chairs overlooking the lake.
Seeing a patch of coneflowers growing alongside my friend's garage,
I boldly asked if I might have a clump. She said "yes".
I returned home rested and refreshed.
My husband helped me plant and water this lovely pink flower.
(I've wanted some of these for a l-o-n-g time...just never followed through.)
It will be my reminder of my July 2014 Porching Days.
