Wish we were here

Success, she decided, was often a matter of knowing when to relax.

I saw this painting and thought, This is it. Here's what I have to say this week.

Soon! This is the last week of classes, and then we have exams and graduation next week, and THEN I can relax!

What a relaxing situation! Love it!

(And I didn't think about it till later about rain ruining the sofa. ;-)

Me too! It looks so lovely and perfect.

Last fall I rented a cabin with a huge screen porch, complete with a bed on the porch for just this type of relaxation. You could pull the bed close to the inner wall in case of storm, but it was perfect for an afternoon read. It was a most relaxing and beautiful place, and I have longed for it ever since. Thank you for the reminder.

Childe Hassam is probably my favorite artist. I love this painting for the dappled light. Beautiful.
