The view from my writing room.

The view

I wrote about how nice the view was from my writing room and have decided to share it with my fellow writers. I took the pictures this morning. Ahh the solitude. Except of course for the visitors. They are there most days, lounging around safe and sound, about seventy yards from the house. Quite happy with life they eventually make their way up to the lawn. Thought I would share.

    With a view like that, its no wonder you like to write so much. Inspiring and gorgeous, all in the same breath. Tho I would have liked to have seen a nice smoker there on the lawn, with puffs of smoke bellowing out, and the smell of a savory supper wafting in the air. Even so, nice view indeed. Worthy of a scribe.

      Thanks so much, I may have to learn the art of smoking. I have been known to make my own jerky as well. I do love my world view from where we live, solitude can be good. 🙂

    Gorgeous! What an inspiring atmosphere to get those juices flowing! I, too, am a bit envious of your view. I am glad to see that you are not affected by the fires and floods where you are. Thanks for sharing your piece fo the world.

      Hi Liz, Thanks, it is great I’m glad you like it. We’re lucky here our place is up on the ridge and away from any flooding. It’s nearly a kilometre to the front gate so when it’s really wet the road gets a bit dodgy. I keep a fire break slashed around the perimeter fence, so we’re quite safe.
      Cheers
      Laurie

    This is beautiful Laurie…. I have been bugging my hubby about buying a place in the country with many acres around… I haven’t convinced him quite yet due to the sucky economy, but I’m still working on it. I’m so envious… This is BEAUTIFUL…. 😀

      Thanks so much Keli, keep bugging him it’s worth the extra miles to go anywhere. Yucky economies don’t help. I’ll have to have a look at some older photos and post them.
      Cheers
      Laurie

    Hi,
    I love it. Those mountains won my heart as soon as I saw them. Absolutely beautiful!!! That is one of the reasons I love Italy. I am met with beautiful blues skies, white clouds and mountains. There I can write and listen to the sounds of nature. And I love your vistors. They can come and visit me any day. A beautiful view and more than that it is a very healing view because it heals the soul.
    Ciao,
    Patricia

      Hi Patricia,
      I’m glad you like my view, it changes slightly with every cloud that passes over it. It calms the soul and gives you pause to think, then a Roo comes and looks in the window, love ’em. When people come to visit we sit on the veranda and it mesmerises them. When we have a lot of rain, the mountain to the rear left has several waterfalls cascading of it. I could go on.
      Cheers
      Laurie.

    A beautiful peaceful looking view Laurie. I love how you capture the relaxed way your visitors make themselves right at home.:o) It looks as though there are just waiting
    for you to start the barbi up and serve them a cold drinks:o).

    What a wonderful view to have as you write. Thank you for sharing.

    We here in Florida are celebrating Thanksgiving as you probably know. I did lots of cooking,with the help of my five year old granddaughter and my husband. We made turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, carrots, fried califlower, green beans, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, gravey,and of course cranberry sauce. After stuffing ourselves( including Georgie, my granddaughter’s dog) to the point of glutiny, I then with some help from everyone, except for my five year old granddaughter who when asked if she was going to help us clear the table, replied, “no, I did all the cooking,you guys can clean up”, so with much laughter we cleared the table, and made coffee and tea. and served apple pie, pumpkin pie, coconut custard pie, panatone(an italian cake), and chocolate chip cookies. In true Italian tradition I also put the apples, oranges, grapes and mixed nuts on the table. In between all of the goings-on, we had some neighbors dropping by to wish us a Happy Thanksgiving throughout the day. My other children and grandchildren who live in New York, and my sisters and their families called to wish us all holiday cheer. It was a bit chilly outside but the sun was shining and we all had a great time. The only one who did not call me was my brother Laurie I am going to have to have a talk with him, he knows how much we love him:o)))),

      Thanks Patricia, relaxed, if they were anymore relaxed they’d be falling over. My wife and I went out this afternoon and there was a courting couple for want of a better term about 10 yards from the house. didn’t we get a dirty look. Darn, I forgot to call, by the sound of all that food you wouldn’t have had the time to talk. It all sounds so delicious. Your g/daughter is priceless, “I did all the cooking,’ smart girl. Wouldn’t it have been easier if the Indians had provided pizza?
      Joking, I guess you will all be living on leftovers for the rest of the week. it’s a wonder anyone can make it to the stores for black Friday trading. The dog would’ve been in heaven. Just reading that menu has filled me up. you guys have a good weekend, with Love form Laurie.
