Every morning for the past 17 years, I've awakened to this view! It's a pleasant backdrop of desert mountains and lake. It's the sweetest spot on earth!. Blessed be that spot! Over the years after saving enough money, I replaced the double windows with french doors, enlarged the patio, bought a spa, and added an awning. After a couple years of the spa blocking most of my view, I gave it to my daughter and haven't missed it at all!
The daily dilemma I have is whether to lie in bed and look at the view, or get up to go to my swing on the patio and look at the view.
"By just exchange one for the other given...There never was a better bargain driven"
