Time to Relax

For fast-acting relief, try slowing down.  
~Lily Tomlin

To sit with a dog on a hillside {or boat} on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace.  
~Milan Kundera

~ Looking forward to some relaxing moments this weekend ~

Wishing you a lovely, and relaxing weekend
which includes a few boring and peaceful moments!

Enjoy more relaxing views at Sky Watch Friday

Again, this post brings me a smile with a tear rolling down. I need a dog.

Dearest Maria, I do hope you are enjoying good weather; we are having a heat wave and I am in the process of using a STEAMER to take off old wall paper! Am I nuts? :)


koralee said...

Morning my friend...thinking of you this morning as I sip on my tea...I am off to help a friend clean up her classroom today...she has a hard time throwing things away and I don't! She has at least 10 years of stuff! This could take a few days. xoxoxo Hugs

"Boring" and "peaceful" sound PERFECT! Hope you enjoyed it.

It looks so peaceful and relaxing Maria. I think you must be enjoying your summer.

Maria, I wonder if I might ask you a little favor. I'm writing a little mystery (I can't believe I have the nerve to even say that!) and setting it in a little town in Upstate NY. We lived near in a little town outside of Glens Falls for about five years and I really did love the little farming community. However, I am having a hard time remembering when things bloomed! Things like lilac, forsythia, lily of the valley - spring flowers, summer flowers. And when do the farmers plant their corn and hay? I want to get it right and am having no luck whatever finding the information on line.
Only if you have time Maria. I will just continue to look on-line in the meantime. Thank you for being such a sweet friend always.
