    This morning in mid-July, barely 10a.m., the sky is high overcast but bright, and the temps are not yet into the 70s.

    All my doors and windows are open; the AC is off, the refrigerator is quiet, there is silence in the cottage.

    But outside the birds are singing their songs, the crows are cawing, a few crickets are chirping, a distant cow lowing for her baby.

    I'm sitting on the porch with the laptop in my lap, listening, in awe, only my breathing and the click of the keys occasionally......

    What a lovely, peaceful, restorative morning. Praises!

    What a wonderful day. Reminds me of a favorite Hymn..."Priase God from whom all blessings flow..."

    Jan, you are in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, IMHO. Enjoy your day!

    I agree, life is beautiful and peaceful like that here in VT as well, but if I had to move it would be to your area.

    On the other side we have 58-60 pouring rain. Having stew for dinner (winter comfort food). Usually too hot&dry (read forest fires) at this time to go camping. This year too wet.LOL.

    The sun is shining, the temp is not yet 70, the windows are open and the fans are off. The birds and crows are singing. No cars are passing by the house to bring people to work at the lab down the street. The air smells fresh and sweet and the cool light breeze is from the ocean over the hill. Dogs and husband are still asleep. This is a heavenly time of day. I am looking through today's QB as I look out on the sunshine and flower garden here in MAINE.

    Oh how I love living in the country. It's awesome when I'm hanging laundry and the only sounds are the birds and the bark of a neighbor's dog. What a life! I'm sooo blessed!

    You are so right, It is exactly the same over here in the Valley outside of Lexington.

    Over here in WV, I know just what you mean. I haven't had the AC on for 3 days now, there has been enough breeze coming through that the only sounds here are the birds, my daughters cow and calf and the newest herd-mates, 11 sheep. They are quite noisy at times however. The horses are down the ridge now and they are pretty quiet all the time and the goats are so intimidated by the cow and the sheep that they have shut up pretty much. Ah, the peace. PS, how could I forget, the noise gets to quite a high level when the Guinies are startled, however. I have never heard such noise-makers.
