Destination: Nowhere

 

Viewing the Neo-Pop aesthetics of Jeff Koons “Bouquet of Tulips” and “Balloon Rabbit and Blue Dog” were definitely a way to relax.

A few weeks ago after listening to co-workers discuss the huge amount of time they had to spend lounging at beaches and resorts this summer, it suddenly occurred to me the season had come and gone in a rapid haze. Where did the time go? Why was it difficult remembering barbecues, girls night out or sitting on the front porch with pitchers of sangria? After reviewing the calendar, I found our focus was spent renovating or repairing leaks, pipes and ceilings at Heath.Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every learning moment of the sometimes overwhelming process, but never scheduled time for myself.

Absolutely enjoying the view of such a wonderful garden and taking in a bit of sun.
As part of a plant based movement this avocado toast, offered a delicious shift from the ordinary and focused on the culinary accomplishments of this establishment.

One item I must have without fail is news, and have learned from these reports how important it is to shut out the work day in order to relax each evening. I’ve always known the importance of a good nights sleep, but recently read if we wake up a few minutes earlier each morning, this added time helps ease one into an action packed schedule, and if you use that time for meditating, writing in a journal or my personal favorite a 25 minute walk, you can clear your thoughts and focus on the events of the day.

Today, time was spent outdoors in a garden, perusing through a museum and I am not going share which city these lovely diversions took place {at least not yet, but soon}.

My focus for the cooler months is creating pockets of quality time for ME!!!

  1. What a delightful post. Good for you for making ME time in spite of leaky pipes, and always drywall repair in your renovation efforts. Quiet evenings with just a couple glasses of wine is a nice way to settle down for me. And walking for miles this time of year is absolutely a must. Again, nice post and very nice pic of you.

  2. We all need some “me” time. That’s what I gave myself and not letting things to get me or rush from here to there like I had been doing. I even wrote a post about it. Can’t wait to see where you went to.

    1. Agreed, working hard and rushing to get so much accomplished has allowed time to completely slip by unnoticed…not good!!! But, we can do this, the time is now and ours!!!
