Some Time Away


“There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither.”  ~Alan Cohen



It has been a delightful winter, not too much snow or cold….just enough to enjoy!  And in winter, I like to do a lot of writing, and some other projects.  All of which can make me a bit tired.  So I have decided to take a rest, and will be away from my blog for the next couple of weeks.





I will return on March 10th with a Wildlife Lessons post.  And my poetry posts will be back on March 13th.





While I’m away, I leave you with another thought about rest and taking a break.  Feel free to download the photo and share.

  1. I think we all need a break after winter and before it gets hectic when spring arrives properly. Hope your break is restorative and you come back feeling revitalised.

  2. Is your break for relaxing or are you so busy you can’t fit everything in? I’m on two very time consuming boards and I’ve just told them I will be unavailable in April. The month is one of the busiest in my garden and this year I decided to enjoy it instead of trying to do it on the fly and becoming frustrated and irritable. Best wishes, Sue

    1. No it is relaxing and resting Susan……I have learned to take it easy and not try to fit it all in…taking breaks helps but this is purely a rest that is needed. Good for you to say no and do things that make sense for you!

  3. Have a great break – you are so good letting us all know what you are doing, I tend to disappear in an unorganised ‘I guess no wifi means I’m taking a break’ sort of a way…. We’re just back from a holiday in Myanmar, a change but definitely not a rest…. but wonderful all the same. See you in March, Spring Yay! What am I on…. that means our winter is coming, no yay!!!
    Take care
