Peach State says: Noisy Morning


The sound of the lightly falling rain, in it’s on again off again dance, mixed with the sound of chirps and tweets.  The gentle dripping sound as the raindrops weigh down the lush green leaves and collectively flow to the next leaf in it’s journey to the ground.  Then, in the midst of the the relaxing spa soundscape, a crashing swoosh of pelting drops and scurrying varmints.  Picture this…the squirrels are jumping from branch to branch shaking every leaf.  It is shaping up to be a blissful “Noisy Morning” complete with a set of rain sticks rotating like an hour glass.

I need more coffee to enjoy this properly.
“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous cup of coffee!”

Peach State says: Rain, Rain Stay Away…


The day has finally arrived…everything is packed…car is cleaned out…I am on my way…

“Well in about 25 minutes!”

Rain, Rain, Stay Away…I am going to enjoy myself today!

“I better make sure my rain gear is still in the car.”

These photos are from Arrington Vineyard’s site…guess who will be taking pictures.

Sorry for the short-undetailed post…but I must put my face on! I wouldn’t want to scare anyone.

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Winter Break…Yea?

It’s the second day of my son’s Winter Break…Yea!
A glorious five days of doing the normal while working my schedule around the presence of my 12 year old. I usually do not plan any appointments for this weeks because of the children being out of school….BUT….some things could not be helped. When my sons were younger we would do something different and fun each day. They would help plan the week! Yet…my youngest prefers to do nothing! He just stares, sits, rocks back and forth, and refuses to use his imagination to creatively preoccupy himself. He could be outside… playing with friends or shooting hoops…but noooooo! “In his defense it is raining today.”

I wake up bright-eyed and bushy tailed, ready to face the day. He…well he mumbles and sits hunched over. When asked what he wanted to do he just shrugged his shoulders.

It is going to be a wonderful week!

Well I am going to go to the dry-cleaner and to the bank…come home for lunch and get ready for my doctor’s appointment. Then the Fire Marshall will be here for another visit with my youngest. I will prepare dinner early in hopes of my hubby getting off early as scheduled.

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Let It Snow!!!


It started out just like any other day-after-Christmas here in Georgia except for the fact of the severe-wind-warning and the dropping temperatures. Well here we go…out to accomplish the impossible…an exchange at the local open mall…“Not that impossible!” The exchange was not accomplished due to the store sold out of the specific item wanted and the truck is not coming until tomorrow. So out the door I go realizing the temperature had dropped in the short time I was in the store. I checked my weather app and got a surprised…three degrees colder.

Once on the road the sprinkles of rain began to hit my windshield in that unique pre-icy way. My bones shook…my stomach craved a big bowl of windy-day-comfort-food.. I arrived at my next stop on my list and stepped out of the car. There it was…SNOW!…well it was spitting the tiny-minuscule-microscopic-bits-of-icy-white-stuff. Now that I am home and warm…I have only one thing to say…Let It Snow!!!
I could stand to see some of the soft-fluffy-bits-of-heaven just about now, as I finish out the holidays, but I will share more about that next week.

I will put my feet up and enjoy a lovely cup of Dark Chocolate with a shot ( or three) of espresso in the mix. Do you want some? Let me know no I will make one for you!

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Dark Sky…No Rain!

There it was…This is a pic of the dark and ominous view as I crested the hill Tuesday morning. I was taking my 19 year old to his painting job and saw the incredible sight. I was so excited as the possibilities flooded my weary brain. Music playing throughout the house, a few lamps turned on to provide cozy light and warmth…but alas…

Dark Sky…No Rain!

This one was taken to show the visible wave-like movement in the body of this massive front.
It was dark most of the day…

Just thought I would share…
I have completed my minor chores already today and have plans to sweep along with, as someone close to me would say, some down-on-your-knees-nitty-gritty-corner-scraping-base-board cleaning. Until that part of the day…Coffee comes first and, of course, waiting for my 19 year old to get ready so I can drop him off for work today. “A mom’s work _______!” HeHe…you understand! Have a great day!

Peach State says: It’s Saturday!

Just a few things to do…nothing major at all. Catch-up with putting clothes away and enjoy my coffee as it gently rains. Strong possibility of storms today and I am ready. Movies recorded and ready for a day on in-door activities and rest. All I know for sure is as soon as hubby leaves for work I am heading back to bed! The down side to this wonderful rainy day is the pounding of hammers on my head. Don’t you just love weather and the way atmospheric pressure effects your body? “Me not so much!”

At least my plants are getting water…but then again they were lucky yesterday with the several downpours in the late afternoon. My 19 year old is probably thrilled at the possibility of a rainy day due to his To-Do List being comprised of yard work.

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Rain Kissed Morning!


My skin tingles in the cooled morning air
Standing alone in the dark.
The light gentle breeze does it’s share
Wiping the collected drop from it’s mark.

The rain paused as clouds pass over
The welcoming thirsty earth.
Refreshed are delicate blooms and clover
Enjoying a moistened drink and rebirth.

Normal chores and relaxing…not scheduled today
But time with dear friends.
A smile and laugh and loving hugs will say
All troubles God has hold and attends.

There may be drops of rain from their eyes
Wiped away by love.
Standing strong together our friendship binds
A love brought together from above.

The rain will likely return until dark
Graying the sky.
But this time with those held close to my heart
Are bonds no one can untie.

I wrote this today while preparing for a trip to the hospital for a follow-up surgery of my dear friend’s daughter. She is 6 years old and is having a bone implant grafted onto her skull. She had a surgery earlier this year to remove a growth and it went very well…I know this is routine but so is the anxiety of this procedure. Please remember her today. Her surgery is at 8:30 this morning…EST.

I am off to get ready to leave…Have a great day!

Peach State says: Rain! What Do You Mean Rain?

There I was…walking along the warm sandy beach…the gentle cascading waves rolling across my feet and my ankles. What time is it? My alarm…NOOOO! I was dreaming! I woke up and came downstairs with my eyes half closed and walked into the kitchen for my coffee. Rain! What Do You Mean Rain!

Yep…can I go back to bed and back to my beachy dream?

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Welcome to Friday!

A melody plays, a peppy tune,
Alerting you to the new day.
What? Already? It’s to soon!
Hey! Welcome to Friday!


Up, Up and Away you go,
To set your day in motion.
Hazy, Sleepy, moving slow!
Coffee! What a notion!

Things to do, people to see.
The days begins to take shape.
Dark, rainy, sip on coffee!
It’s Friday for goodness sake!

Two sleep and two out the door.
In full start of their day.
Peaceful, quiet, doggy snores!
Yep! Welcome to Friday!

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Rain on a Tin Roof

I am sitting here in church!

I just had to share the sound!
The heavy rain in beating against the Tin Roof of our church. The silence
had already been broken today but the constant beating of the weather
driven drums have filled the large Worship Center.
Glad I am indoors!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
