Goodbye Rain, Hello Sunshine

13 Jun

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

I enjoy rainy days, in fact I generally prefer a rainy one to a sunny, hot day, but I was tired of the week of rain we just experienced. Mind you, I am thankful we didn’t receive the dangerous amount that some folks had, but still, I was ready for some sunshine and shine it did yesterday.

The soft winds held the perfect touch of chill and spending time on the porch enjoying the hummingbird antics was delightful. Another delight was discovering the Gold Finches had returned and were busily munching away on the feeder.

My aunt and cousin are visiting and we have been enjoying our porch time. We moved a deck chair with a cushion onto the porch and I am looking forward to lounging while sipping coffee and enjoying my daily quiet time.

Another thing I am looking forward to is seeing David Holf and Josh Goforth at the performing arts center in August. Their specialty is mountain music.

“Four-time Grammy Award winner, David Holt and rising acoustic music star and Grammy nominee, Josh Goforth join together to bring to life the joy and spirit of old-time mountain music and stories. Between them, the combine the virtuosic sounds of guitar, banjo, fiddle, slide guitar, mandolin, and a world of exciting rhythm instruments from hambone (body slapping) rhythms, to spoons, stump-fiddle, rhythm bones, jaw harp and even paper bag. It is a program of songs, stories and amazing musicianship that will appeal to all ages. ” Great Mountain Music dot com

Are you looking forward to anything special this summer?
