Friday Flash 55 "Adirondack Bliss"


Adirondack Bliss

Every day I pause,
wish to sit a spell
upon cedar and cypress,

enjoy spring's labor
and sip a tart lemonade (spiked),
shaded by a floppy straw hat,

soak in the warmth
a southern spring serves,
while lilies and angelonia

wave colors bright,
a novel cradled upon my lap,
a dog beneath pampered, pedicured feet.

by Margaret Bednar, June 6, 2013

Every word of this wish is true... sigh.  I'm hoping SOME DAY... !  This is linked with the fabulous Friday Flash 55 - a story in 55 words - no more, no less.

Margaret Bednar...
As I've often said, even your afterthoughts are precious little Gems. I love Adirondack chairs
I loved what you did for them
You are such a treasure.
Thank you for your weekly works of Art
Have a Kick Ass Week End

I'll meet you there, Margaret. I'll bring the wine or iced tea with lemon wedges if you prefer. :)

And don't think the pampered pedicured feet reference slipped by me... I'm not THAT sleepy...:-)

Ha ha! I did have my yearly spring pedicure about a month ago. PURE bliss. And my red semi-high heels looked pretty good for a change.

But barn boots and running shoes aren't doing much for my feet now...

So, no purple toes these days, eh? I love the sense of a southern summer here Margaret, and of course the flower references(not to mention the spiked lemonade.) We are in that brief time between too cold, too wet, too windy and too hot, when we actually can sit out on our back patio ourselves, and it *is* bliss, even without a pedicure. ;_)

Oh Missy Margaret ... one day you and hubby will be all retired with nothing to do but sit in those chairs and sip that spiked lemonade. And then? Grandchildren will want your attention...

Oh my, what a lovely wish. Have to say it would suit me fine as well. Love the image of the dog and the manicured tooties. Wonderful.

Sounds like an ideal "happy place" to visit, if only in your head when days are so rushed.

I'm laughing, Margaret, because I have painted and stained sister Ruth's Adirondack chairs in Michigan...the ones Don made once upon a time. I "know" them by heart. :)
