Lazy ME

grandson's enjoying the fire



Since I have returned to New Jersey I have been quite lazy! I really don't know whats up with me. I know my hubby would say well you must need the rest, but somehow I still feel guilty about doing nothing! I get up all well intentioned to get some things done, but I sit, I go on the computer, I read and I basically lay around.

Granted there isn't too mush to do in an empty house, but I could go out and work on the yard or maybe tear up the carpet downstairs to get ready for the new or Spackle the places we are gonna paint or even go get my nephew who is gonna clean the gutters, but no I just sit!

It's almost like I am on a sabbatical or silent retreat! Communing with God and nature. Thinking out what I should do with the house-sell or not sell etc.

I feel so at peace right now, nothing is happening in the world. I can remember a time when I would never sit so silently for so long a time! EEK I guess I am going thru another season in my life.
The whole life of man is but a point of time; let us enjoy it.

Is it very warm. I mean are the temperatures fairly high? I notice I don't have as much energy when it's hot.

Have a terrific day. :)

Just enjoy it and don't wonder about it. Let the kids do the work. Enjoy yourself and your quiet time.

I would agree-- you probably need the rest. Why not just enjoy it. I'm sure you've more than earned the break.

The discipline of solitude and silence can be a very, very good thing.

Sometimes we all need rest and retreat. You've been through so much this year and with all your road time too, I'm not surprised you need time to regroup.

You are not alone, been feeling that way myself for a week or more. Reading, playing on the computer and dining with friends have been the high points. Ah, maybe it's just those lazy, hazy days of summer?

Peaceful or at peace is good. I need to go there myself...
