Peach State says: The Windy Howl!


There is a gentle swaying
as the bare naked limbs stretch across the sky.
The tinkling tones sound
as the helpless chimes compose new melodies.
Constant and unchallenged the steady breeze blows…

But wait!

A new sound finds my ears
as the leave-less giants quiver and bend.
The melody is mashed
as the confused chimes crash together.
The fury of The Windy Howl!

Gone again is the gust
roaring through the shivering trees.
The clanging chimes quieted
as the furious breath becomes a whisper.
Returned is the gentle sway, awaiting the next Windy Howl!

I just wanted to share this visual picturesque scene. I am truly enjoying this view…as I finish my coffee in the solitude of my chair. It felt like a poetic morning so I wrote what I experienced. Yesterday went well and almost everything was accomplished. The only thing that was left un-checked was completing my grocery shopping and attending the extra choir practice. “Sometimes we have to choose family!” As you know…I am always at some practice or another! But this week is a different week…too vague? All will be explained…promise! I will take this rare time to enjoy the sights and sounds provided by the forceful wind…before my day is taken from me.

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: Windy Beginning to My Day!

Up as usual and down the stairs! My Precious Princess wants out for morning for morning stomp through the freshly laid garden mulch. I open the door and see the trees bending over as the flag, in our yard, flies fully extended in proud fashion. I stepped out onto the front porch and feel the coolness in the stiff breeze as it blows by viciously. Only two things on my mind…check the weather forecast and I need my coffee!
Have a great day!
