What I might be doing

It’s amazing how relieved I feel after posting yesterday.  Four days off!  Yay!

My relief and excitement at taking some time off from blogging are, without a doubt, a strong sign that I need to do it.  I’ve been taking blogging much too seriously lately.  It’s time to bring back the fun, and that means balance.

The creek in the woods

So.  What am I up to today?  Well, I can’t be entirely sure.  I made plans, but plans often change.  Hopefully I was up bright and early for my yoga practice and meditation.  After that, a breakfast of kitchari.  I made a big batch of it yesterday (which is really today as I type this but that’s too confusing to think about).  It’s a good way to fast without going hungry.

Sunset clouds

I have an appointment to get my hair cut in the morning.  In the evening I’m going to see The Addams Family.  In between all that, I will be cleaning, walking, spending time in the garden, playing with the kitties, reading, writing, daydreaming, and whatever else I want to do.

Tuesday's beautiful sunset

I might even go out and talk with the trees for a little while.  It’s been a while since I have had a conversation with a tree.

Good company

Thank you for visiting while I’m away from the blogosphere for a little while.  Wishing you a terrific Thursday, and at least a few moments of time to relax and recharge.

P.S.  No post tomorrow (scheduled or otherwise) or for the rest of the weekend.  I figure you all can use a break too.  🙂

    The first one fascinated me, there is a lovely Zen touches… But the others are amazing too. Thank you dear Robin. Have a nice and enjoyable holiday, with my love, nia

  7. Enjoy your break, Robin.

    It sounds as though you really need the break Robin. I’m the opposite to you right now; work has my time all sewn up and I have a million things (at least!) buzzing around it my head that I don’t have the time to write!

    Enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you next week. 🙂

    That “SUNSET CLOUDS” image is a real stunner!!!! A great natural abstract. Gallery ready.

  10. Chloe says:

    adore that first photograph!

  11. Tammy says:

    The transparency of the black and white really grips me.

  12. Love your dogwood photos, Robin! (The ones from your previous posts as well)
    I think I’m due for a blogging break, too, I find myself scheduling ahead (and waiting until the last moment to schedule more) and not visiting other blogs as much because my heart just isn’t in it as much right now as it used to be.

    Enjoy your break!

    Having just taken a break myself, I know how much you need it once in awhile. Enjoy! By the way, what is kitchari?

  15. I love the last photo…so peaceful and serene. Glad to hear you are taking time for yourself. I have often wondered how you found all the time and energy to keep up with your wonderful blog. Enjoy your time off, Robin!

    Taking weekends off sometime in the middle of last year was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, although I still try to read and comment some on Sat and Sun. I may alter that in the future too.

    At first my stats suffered, but then they caught back up, if you’re worried at all about that.

    You’re right. Balance.

    What is kitchari? I try to fast on occasion. It’s supposed to be good for regenerating brain cells.

    We saw the Addams family and enjoyed it,

  17. Permission granted to take the weekend off….now I won’t feel guilty either!

  18. cidnlars says:

    Love how you composed the top shot, just great! Enjoy your restful weekend!

  19. now there’s someone that knows how to take a picture!!

  20. ladyfi says:

    Fabulous sunset shots!

  21. Kathy says:

    We’re on the same wavelength, Robin. I am enjoying taking some time off, too, posting once a week for the near future. This feels like a right decision for now–although it’s been a blast posting almost-daily for such a long time. I agree with you that balance is a big key to realizing the wholeness in our lives.

  22. dadirri7 says:

    thanks robin, love how you are exploring what you need to do, i feel we must be able to stay free to follow life as it unfolds, terrible to have musts and shoulds restricting that flow!

  23. jane tims says:

    Love the creek and the deadfalls across it. These were always very convenient as bridges when I was young and flexible! Jane

  24. Some truly beautiful photos there. I can’t believe the colours you get in your sunsets over there – I always thought we had good ones, but nothing like that!

  25. Robin says:

    Thank you so much everyone. My apologies for taking so long to read and answer comments. I’m still in “taking it easy” break mode. 😀

  26. Robin says:

    Ooops… and for those who asked: Kitchari is an Indian rice and bean dish. You can read about it here:
