Being "almost" retired means that I should have more time on my hands, but lately I feel the time is on someone else's hands 'cause it sure hasn't been staying too long on mine! Not that I mind as it sure makes the time fly, but with summer finally upon us and the knowledge that we only have about 8 weeks of "summer-like" weather, I plan on making the most of it.
I love posting my blogs each Tuesday on Wellness and on Frivolous Friday about what ever happens to tickle my fancy!. Wordless Wednesday is also a fav, but usually only requires a picture and not a lot of words. However, there is a certain urgency and pressure to maintain the quality of each post, and with that in mind I am giving myself permission to take a "vacation"from deadlines and pressures!
I plan on spending a few days camping with my two sisters , you probably know them, Monica, from Older Mommy Still Yummy Kathy, from Oak Lawn Images
When the three of us get together, minus hubbies, kids, grand kids, computers,phones and such, it is pure relaxation. Walks on the beach..... yes, we really do that and we are not looking for "friends"!! Walks /hikes through the woods, and endless hours contemplating the flames of a campfire!!! The rest of the summer I will spend with my husband of many many years and our wonderful family and friends, doing what ever the mood and the moment asks of us. It really doesn't get much better than that, does it??!!
I hope everyone that takes the time to read this post, takes the time to relax, to enjoy the everyday pleasures and to be grateful for all that we have. As I wrote about in an earlier post it is all about perspective! Will be back on track either later this summer or in early autumn ( with occasional posts in between). Have a safe and happy summer!!
Be well and be safe!!
