Now that the 4th is over and the family and friends that were staying with us have gone home, I have been enjoying a lazy weekend. It felt nice yesterday after doing some yard work in the morning to just chill and not do anything but sit on our dock with my feet in the water.

I didn’t even read a book or have my phone with me, it was just me and my thoughts until it got to hot and I had to go inside out of the sun.

Today I plan to do more of this kind of chill-axing and hope that you can take a bit of time to enjoy doing nothing. :-)

  1. Thanks for such a great tips for “Fashion & Beauty” I hope this will contribute to improve my aging appearance.

  2. What an interesting article on the Dial of Destiny! I loved the writer’s comment, “And it makes you wonder what else we have no idea about.” Doesn’t it do just that? Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Hi Edna – I agree that the article is fascinating. Maybe someday we will know the answer to what it was designed to do as well other stuff from ancient times.

    1. Hi Lisa – The photo in my post is one from a designer showhouse so I don’t have the exact resource for that blue grasscloth wallpaper. But I did use a similar one in my bedroom. You can see it in this post:

  3. we live in 1100 square feet; 1500 would seem like luxury. We’re pretty darn happy. That’s a little misleading since we’re in a senior residence with a pool, small gym, library, restaurant, movie theater and art room.
    We don’t have to have all those amenities inside our own unit when it’s available out our front door.

    1. Hi Patricia – It sounds like you have it the best! Just the right size living space with lots of amenities that you can enjoy without having to take care of them.
