Relaxing (?) for a change...


 This is where I sat relaxing (?) last night after another great visit with my daughter and her family.  As we watched the evening unfold before us we chatted about our day - enjoying not only the company, but the scene all around us:  My grandson played with their chocolate Lab - which brought us a few chuckles.  The bright yellow bird that stopped by was beautiful. The sweet scent of the flowers was amazing. And the refreshing evening breeze was a welcomed relief after the hot, muggy day.  I only wish we lived closer so we could do this more often.

With that thought in mind, I'm thinking I am going to do a little less blogging during the summer months.  Partly because I (hopefully) plan to be busier with life - you know, fun stuff, like going to the beach, taking the grandkids to the zoo, cook-outs, museums, movies, visiting with family and friends, reading...writing...

And maybe just sitting around daydreaming!  Life seems to be so hectic lately that I never find enough time to just sit and relax, smell the flowers...something I was so well aware of last night as I found myself thinking ahead to today. (Not really relaxing)  Shouldn't we be able to stop all the planning and thinking once in a while?

     This kind of says it all ---->

 I feel like I've become stagnant. And, I have been so busy with my two blogs, face book page and twitter that I simply am not spending enough time writing.  And I miss it.  Writing fiction comes so much easier to me than dreaming up ideas for blogs...and it gives me so much enjoyment.  I'll still be here on the internet...checking all my writer-friend's blogs, reading all the awesome poetry on my Writer's Circle group page, catching up on family and friend's daily happenings.  But when I am not out and about doing fun things...I will be writing!

What do you have planned for this summer?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Looks like a nice relaxing time! My trip for the summer is over, however my grand kids are coming the 23rd for two weeks and we have several day trips planned with center, zoo, Canaveral seashore park, etc. We were going to the Okefenokee Swamp for canoe tour but learned today it has been closed due to the fires and low water levels because of no rain. I know what you mean Sharon about coming up with blog subjects...I have a really hard time with this myself. I always enjoy yours!

  2. Thanks, DiAnne! I always enjoy your blog too!

  3. I hope you get some relaxation time this summer, Sharon. It sounds like you're ready for a little break. I know exactly how you feel.
    BUT, I have something for you to think (and write) about.
    I tagged you in a meme. Go to my blog and check it out. :)

  4. Great post. Love the idea of relaxing. I do that a lot. But writing can be relaxing and cathartic too. Be well and recharge those batteries. Need your strength to write.
