Stepping away from work for a moment......

This past Sunday, I decided to just step away from any kind of work.....house work, school work, etc. and just enjoy the day as it unfolded. The weather was still warm, in the mid 70's, and the sun came out every once in a while. I took the camera on a little walk with me around my house........stopping to smell the roses....no the mums.....and look what I found. Bees hard at work!


Berries on the front bushes are beginning to turn red......colors of the holiday soon to be here.

And the sweetest Scottie ever.......who just wanted to play. Simple pleasures sure to be missed if one doesn't slow down every once in a while. Hope you have an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the world around you this week.

Good for you for taking a day rest and do what you want to do!

Isn't it amazing how a camera can focus your mind too? I am glad that you enjoyed a day off everything, we women need to do this more often! I decided that I will not do any more cooking until Saturday (3 days without), when we will celebrate Thanksgiving, i.e. I will slave over the kitchen stove for hours, not to speak about getting all the groceries into the home before that! ;-)

We are enjoying a particularly beautiful spell of weather, the air sings of springs, unbelievable! I will take tomorrow morning off for just walking the city, after all, I did not get a break over the weekend.

Hugs,
Merisi
