My favourite summer spot
What do you do with your storm cellar on hot summer days? Why you throw up a hammock on top of course! Yes this is my absolute fave place to spend summer days in our garden. In the shade of the Silver Maple, kicking back in the hammock listening to birdsong and the breeze in the trees. Being in a raised position and at one end of the garden, I get to enjoy lovely views of 'our Kingdom' as the Hubster calls it. The Maple overhead means it is in deep shade for most of the day and it's easy to doze and enjoy the peace and quiet from here. The thing is, I'm not the only one who appreciates its fine positioning or comfort, Sukie almost beats me into it most days and soon finds the best seat in the house! I am often tickled wondering if she ever tries to get into it alone and finds herself unexpectedly on the down side? My mum was not keen at all after she landed beneath getting into it last year. And no amount of convincing by me would get her to try again sadly!But at times my hideaway gets really crowded when the Hubster decides to join us too! But unlike Sukes & I who happily doze in companiable silence, he likes to look around constantly and engage me in conversation, but I enjoy his company nevertheless.About the only thing to do in the hammock apart from read or doze, is spot the occasional military flyover. They are high enough we don't hear them, but they pass over our area pretty regularly and the Hubster enjoys spotting them.So this is invariably where you'll find me on hot summer days, sometimes it's just a really hard life here in Okieland!
