I feel better already. Letting the stress of the past few days roll off my shoulders and pool around my chair and dry into a fine dust to be blown away by the early spring winds. It’s days like these when I truly love living in
NE Georgia. Just this morning I watched 8 deer feed on a few green sprigs popping up, just feet away from the house. As the fog lifted above the trees, the birds began singing their morning song and a few of them came to visit by landing on the front porch rail. I’m very fortunate to live in what I consider my dream vacation.
