Drowsy afternoon

I was thinking this is such a nice afternoon...a warm comfort born out of healthy plants kissed by the sun. Makes you want to pull out a quilt, find a bit of shade and take a nap beneath the mulberry trees. Hmmm, sounds really good. I found this poem and it sort of captures a bit of what I'm thinking about just now...

Come, Rest Awhile

Come, rest awhile, and let us idly stray
In glimmering valleys, cool and far away.

Come from the greedy mart, the troubled street,
And listen to the music, faint and sweet,

That echoes ever to a listening ear,
Unheard by those who will not pause to hear?

The wayward chimes of memory's pensive bells,
Wind-blown o'er misty hills and curtained dells.

One step aside and dewy buds unclose
The sweetness of the violet and the rose;

Song and romance still linger in the green,
Emblossomed ways by you so seldom seen,

And near at hand, would you but see them, lie
All lovely things beloved in days gone by.

You have forgotten what it is to smile
In your too busy life?come, rest awhile.

Lucy Maud Montgomery

It's so nice, so very nice, to have my mom here with us. I just wish I could get my dad over here too and they could move. Am I greedy? I think a part of me is, but it would be so good if they could just be here with us (sorry, brothers and sis). I wouldn't even mind if we got into a few arguments (well, not too many). lol

Anyway, just me wishing out loud. I like CA but for all there is, it's so noisy, so busy and just too much. I hate to sound like a snob, but smaller cities/towns may not be big but in other ways they are much bigger and better.
