Those pictures are definitely the definition of respite!

I'm glad you posted early! Between the lack of electricity and the dust storm (haboob???), I've been worried! The videos I've seen are SCARY!!!

I just can;t imagine...

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

Cyndi, haboob was a mess. Impressive, but not like we needed to be impressed.
Hope you are okay???

Wherever that is, I want to bring a book and a cold drink and just listen to the quiet. Neat!

That shade looks good, even though our weather has been decent (mid to upper 80s). I didn't hear about haboob. Should I google it? Wish I could remember all this stuff, at a gut level where it matters, from Dec. - March in Michigan.

Oh, that looks like some kind of healing garden. How nice it would be to just sit on that bench in the shade of those trees for a while...

Lovely respiteful photos! Around here summer is a respite from the rest of the year, so no respite needed. We've hit 90 degrees once at my house so far this year, and I like it that way!

Lovely photos! I feel much more relaxed now and I felt pretty good to start out with!
