Summer advice

Summer Advice

Savor the moment
Let your mind wander
Only rise
When you’re good and ready

Don’t rush around
Or meet any deadlines
Wile away the day
No pressure

It’s summer and I’m about to take my own advice. I will be taking a break from blogging here for a few weeks. I’ll be back sometime in August. Wishing you all sweet summer days.

    Good advice! Well done. I’ve done that for two days, but now I need groceries!

      *Grin* – So true! The shine quickly comes off a relaxing summer day if one is hungry.

    I am still reading PF posts, & enjoying every bit of it, NOT rushing at all. Happy vacation, Violet! Thank you for what might be a mantra!

      Busy summer, Idk? Maybe you can designate another season of the year to do this. I think a break sometime is important. We don’t want to burn out!

    Great poem and photo. Would you consider letting me combine both with credit to you as part of the REFLECT WITH ME: Summer Serenity gallery? See info at: ? Thanks, Violet.

      Take some deeeep breaths, Irene — and enjoy savoring all the kudos your books have received lately. Big congratulations on the Wildebeast book. Sounds like so much fun!
