Saturday, rare and life is good

- A Saturday morning so perfect on the back porch that it is too bad you can't freeze 10 o'clock.

- A rare Saturday at home, sleeping in a bit, coffee, cheddar cheese laced grits and poached eggs, finishing a book.

- 0% humidity, a light breeze gently wafting by, a neighbor mowing his lawn leaves the air scented with that fresh cut grass smell that always reminds me of Saturdays growing up. Life is good.

That sounds like pure perfection, Lynn. And the neat thing is realizing how beautiful it is...

Talon -

I needed a day like that. Mom and Dad are much better, so they said there was no need for me to come down. A gift of a day.

Maude Lynn said...

I want a day like that! Today, please.

Jannie Funster said...

Ahh, a trilogy of wonder that reads like a delicious poem.

Thanks for sharing your usual beauty, Lynn.

Mama Zen -

I hope that today is that day for you!

Jannie -

You're welcome! I usually don't post on Saturday, but felt inspired because it turned into such a peaceful and not hot day. xoxo

Your blog is amazing, you know that? I might have said it before, but I love that you look for magic in daily details.

I don't know if I have had grits before, but it sounds yummy with poached eggs.

Jewel -

Thank you - that is a magic comment! I like your blog, too, and always smile at the comment about spiders in your tagline. Oh I AM afraid of spiders - or at least I don't like them touching me. :)

You might find corn grits where you live - I think they are used to make polenta sometimes. We eat hominy grits in the south - they are on most breakfast menus in restaurants. If you ever go through the Atlanta airport you can try them at Paschal's if you're there during breakfast hours. I'm an oatmeal girl usually, but make a special effort at breakfast on the weekends.

A perfect description to this past Saturday at my house.

A break in the mugginess with a cool breeze and the occasional bird chirping.


Who says you can't find a little bit of country smack dab in the middle of the 'burbs?

G -

Sounds like a "chamber of commerce" weekend up and down the east coast!
