outside my window


Every morning, after pouring myself a steaming cup of coffee, I sit in my favorite old leather chair and gaze out this window.

There is something about the view that just brings me focus and centers my heart.

Normally in late winter not only are the camellias blooming but there is a covering of snow on the distant mountain range.  This year has been exceptionally dry so the snow is absent but the view is still one of my favorites.

I find comfort in the constant of nature.  Don't you agree?  I like the fact that no matter what is swirling around in my head. the view outside my window remains the same. 

My coffee is cold...time for a refill.   Have a wonderful day!  Patty

  17. My thoughts exactly. I have a similar view of Stuart Peak and it comforts me and makes me smile. Kit

  18. A beautiful view indeed. I love sitting on my porch swing and looking out over our pasture and across the way to our neighbors. Unfortunately, I don't have mountains anywhere near us. ;) Yes, you're right. Nothing is more comforting than the constant in nature that takes you away and brings peace. Enjoy.

  19. Love the view...relaxing and very beautiful~~makes me want to curl up with a good book and sit n sip on some rose tea...Thanks for sharing!! Carol
