Hanging out

 

The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark.-- Barbara Hall, Northern Exposure, Rosebud, 1993
   

 I awoke with this little fellow hanging outside my front door window.  I had walked downstairs and caught the sight of him out of the corner of my eye.  Ever get a feeling that someone is around and watching?  :)   Well, It let me get close enough to take a picture as he climbed on the bricks and basked in the sun.  Pretty cool I thought.
Yesterday , Daniel invited his friend and mother to come hang out at the pool.  We talked, laughed, swam and basked in the sun ourselves for about 4 hours.  It was a fun afternoon that left me feeling a little worn out.  Something I probably shouldn't have done on tennis night.  But, we plan on having them over again next week.  It's summer and I'm loving it.  :)

I like your quotation.  BTW, I never saw a lizard look so beautiful!  Ahhhh, those lazy days of summer, I remember them well - hanging around the pool, going to the beach, camping, barbecues, water skiing and PISMO BEACH!  Just good old-fashion summer fun!  You must be getting ready for your trip with your son, huh?  Or do I have you confused with someone else.  At my, those senior moments start to creep in.  LOL!  hugs, gloria
