I took my first real 8-day vacation in over a decade last week. The front of my vacation ‘rental’ shows only a minute portion of the nature and beauty of the area.
In exchange for 8 days of solitude, I watered and dead-headed many of the annual plants in and around the house and fed the indoor and outdoor fish.
I volunteered for the project to get the much-needed solitude to relax, read and write…all of which I did with a smile on my face the entire time.
The loudest noises were the hummingbirds feeding off the front porch feeders and the dairy cows being vocal on the neighboring property.
How’s that for a free vacation? I was in a state of bliss!
I even picked some yellow beans early Sunday morning before I came home.
Unfortunately, I was unable to save Suzi & Jerry’s garden from the ravages of the wildlife. Fortunately, 30 minutes after I picked the beans, two bear visited the garden. I’m glad I didn’t see that my first day there!!
Enjoy the rest of your summer and tap into some of that bliss!
