Love hanging with the family at the pool. It’s so nice to float around and let the stress of work melt away!
It also reminds me that I need to get some sun on my pale body!
This weekend Evelina and I decided to unplug and disconnect a bit. She was on-call yesterday for work, but other than that slight inconvenience we decided to have some planned time away. For me this was perfectly timed as I needed time to recharge following our vacation. I know that might sound a bit ridiculous considering we returned from vacation on Tuesday, but the truth is the driving time zapped my energy.
I believe it is important to plan time away from technology. It is important to plan time to decompress and do absolutely nothing. Remember, life isn’t about working the hardest all the time; it’s about working the smartest all the time. And sometimes the smart thing to do is…nothing!
I would like you guys to meet PERMACOOKING!!

When my British friends seriously want some tea, they get specific about what they want: not just tea but a nice cup of tea.
Let’s take that apart: We can leave a and of alone without destabilizing anything important. But think about the word nice. Because you don’t just have a cup of tea in this country, you have a nice cup of tea. Even when the nice is silent, if you listen carefully you can hear it resonating in the background. I need a nice cup of tea, a nice cup of tea, a nice cup of tea.
And if the cup of tea you get tastes like second-hand dishwater? It’s all the more disappointing, because what you wanted was that nice cup of tea, not this travesty you’ve been handed.
In the U.S., we never sit down to a nice cup of coffee. We drink coffee, we make coffee…

No television leaves time for reading, exercising and family time. Maybe it’s time to give it a try!
Today I am taking a break from my usual programming and relaxing. No serious posts or deep thoughts. No challenges. Just chill and relax.
Today’s theme has been learning to take time to relax and recharge the ole’ mind and body. I think Seeking a Life Full of Laughter has it figured out!! This is a very good read!
In the chaos, that is the school year, I often feel as though I never have time set aside time to just “relax”. One of my favorite things to do this summer, since I finally have a home in which I enjoy, is to sit on the porch.
I live in one of those neighborhoods, where single family homes are highlighted by cozy front porches where neighbors gather in the evenings and watch the happenings of the neighborhood. It is from my porch that I can watch my neighbor landscape her property, catch up on the latest gossip from Marlene across the street, watch as the ladies who live down the street take Tucker on his nightly walk, and sit on my chair listening to Mumford & Sons (and other such types of music) while sipping a glass of wine. Even my cat, Stitch, gets to enjoy the porch on…
