When it's summer and the temperature is in the nineties, I love to be near the water. Just putting your toes into the cool water of a stream or lake makes all the difference. While we were in Tennessee last month, I took some pictures of the creek that runs at the back of my BIL and SIL's property.
With the temperature in the mid-nineties today, these pictures allow me to pretend that I'm by the creek with a cold glass of ice tea. A soft breeze blowing and the lovely fragrance of flowers in the air. I can also pretend that there aren't any bugs around. I have to pretend because there were chiggers and bugs aplenty for our visit, but this is my fantasy so I can have it however I want.
So sit down, grab a glass of tea, prop up your feet and listen to the water as it flows by.
