My iPod Has Issues – Back Porch Blogging

13 Jun

I am sitting on the back porch with the laptop in my lap. Is that not where it is supposed to be? The sun is shining, and the birds are chirping. I can hear a lawnmower somewhere in the distance. They say that storms will be overhead later in the day. That is typical for a June afternoon in Tennessee.

Unused firewood is taking up one corner of the deck. It is beside some chairs that are fading in the sun. I can see the strand of a spiderweb attached to one of them as the sunlight glistens off of it. I suppose that I should knock it down, but the spider has spent a lot of time working on it.

It is a relaxing time, and nothing much is going through my mind. There are no clever ideas for a post. There are no psychoses that need to be addressed. It is simply a normal porch-sitting experience.image-38

With nothing to write about, I could end the post, but it does not seem right to stop at 177 words. At least, that is how many words WordPress said I had typed when I typed 177. Instead of stopping, I will turn on the iPod and see what it going on. After that, I will go back to staring at the trees. There is a dead one out there that needs to be dealt with.

    Love your porch. Looks peaceful and waiting for a bar-b-que to start

      Thanks. The grill is just out of the frame.

    Sounds like a perfect afternoon. Raining here!

      The rain hasn’t started, but they still say it’s on the way.

    It’s that kind of day here, too, except I am suddenly very paranoid about spider webs on wood piles! No rain, either. They keep promising, but it doesn’t happen.

      Just keep the spiders away from Garry.

        And me. One member of our little nuclear family is more than enough.

    I’m not sure why, but I really enjoyed the inclusion of the lawnmower.

      I’m glad you liked it.

    Wow .. there are a few there I haven’t heard before. Have to check ’em out.

      Most of them are pretty good.
