These things I saw on a lovely walk this week, when I pulled the car over on a whim, and got out, because I could. There were patterns and a little Free Library that had a copy of Winne the Pooh - in french!
There were red chairs with sun shining through them and garlands & stars adorning a porch.
There were big old trees and wrought iron fences.
I saw a wreath on a door of a house with a porch with a peak that contained Victorian Gingerbread woodwork. And hello trees.
All the while I was walking, I was serenaded by wind chimes that someone had the good sense to hang in just the right spot to be melodic, but not clanging. Oh Joy. I hope your 2017 is full of just this sort of afternoon.
