I did nothing.......really.....


So as promised yesterday I did a bunch of not to much - YAYAYAYAY. I will admit it was a bit of a challenge to do nothing much. What does that say about my life!!?? So...what did I do....

I had a house full of kiddos and we played outside in the lovely 78 degree sunshine(with sunscreen), collected bugs and four leaf clovers & one five leaf one(haven't done that in years). We had a picnic and ate out PB&J's on the porch with milk and watched the bumble and honey bees enjoy the blooms on the chestnut tree. Lots of discussion about how to tell the difference... and that the neighbors have a skep... and why were they in our(they consider this their house too) yard stealing nectar ... and that it was ok... and a good thing for them to visit tht it helped our yard grow and why.


We also giggled at the cat chasing bugs - huge leaps and twists into the air at what appeared to be nothing - LOTS of giggles. They took turns on the porch swing with me - I do love the porch swing!! They went off to play a fantasy game about bug hunters and princesses - mixed group - and I pulled out my camera & took a few sneaky pics. What I found was - we had not cleaned off the peanut butter from little faces - lol.


What else did I not do - I didn't clean much, or do laundry, I skipped the artwork (although I looove that) for one day, I didn't list anything or update anything, I did not do paperwork for my preschool. I did.... take time to pop by a ton of blogger friends blogs and say hi & checked out a few new folks blogs, email several friends and had a long, enlightening(Barb is so good at that - the light bulb stuff) conversation with my sister on the phone. I even read some of my mystery novel & watched two old episodes of Star Trek Next Generation. Oh and for the very first time this year - I slept with the window open!! So all an all a very satisfying day!
More not much of anything & just breathing today....Namaste, Sarah

All right! A day to enjoy all the beauty around you...and your little one...PBJ wonder face and all...looked beautiful! It's so nice that the kids can see us sit back and enjoy...makes them take a look at things differently as well. Good for you...enjoy today, too!!

Oh that sounds like a wonderful day!
Then the storm rolled in, at least it did here. A different sort of beauty.

Sometimes you just gotta do nothing.

Sarah I am totally not kidding, this picture of Nonni should go in a magazine. She is so beautiful.

She actually reminds me of me and my sisters when we were little girls.

Thank you for the awards. I am just going to take them now. You know I love them.

The bookmarks are amazing and I really love the charm you put on that one.

Sarah you are my dear friend and did you know that I think of you every day. I have about 15 friends that I think of every day and you are one of them.

I always send you my love and that you will have the best day you can on that particular day.

Love Renee xoxoxo
