A sandy beach and a cool refreshing oasis right in my backyard

By
Real Estate Assistant with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Vacations are nice when you can do that but with the right atmosphere you can enjoy many staycations too. Since Mom isn't one that likes to travel and I am here taking care of her for as long as need be I am turning our backyard into a oasis of staycations for summertime. While I love to travel. I am limited in this stage of my life so I am making the most of the phase of my life as it is now.

Most of my regular readers know I am landscaping the backyard and I also love birds so part of the landscaping is providing shelter, food and a variety of natural food for them. It is called birdscaping. I will have a bird sanctuary for the birds and a sea of color that is appealing to the eyes and Lindsey's memorial garden which I believe will be a healing place and one where I can feel her spirit close by. All that can make for a oasis and a beautiful place for relaxation but a staycation wouldn't be complete for those hot summer days without a way to cool off from all that work.

So this is my answer to my own private get away without leaving home.

Sharon, there's nothing like having your very own oasis! I love that you are putting in something that will continually give you pleasure! We have a hot tub in our yard and try to use it as often as possible! Go Girl!

Peg-Thank you. I am glad to. They get LOTS of hot days here in the South. A hot tub would be nice too.
