Doing Nothing

There are vacations that keep you so busy that getting back home is almost a relief….  this wasn’t one of those.  This had to be the most kicked back trip we have ever taken.  I am so grateful for time off with my hubby.  And for mustard and beef bologna and wheat bread and Pringles and onion dip and grape juice. (and candy…lots of candy)  I am happy to have a guy that has no objection to eating unhealthy food for a few days.  And that agrees with me that doing NOTHING for a change….is truly something.

Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46. 10

    Ah, there is nothing better than doing nothing! Well, except doing nothing in a beautiful spot with someone you adore and candy 🙂 So glad you had a wonderful time!

    Bliss! Happy for you both, sounds (and looks) like heaven. xo

    • I am not a morning but I couldn’t resist the sunrise over the water each morning. Hubby would wake to hearing… “There’s a cloud on our deck!” Maybe he was ready to come home?!? 😉 Love you, R♡

  9. Doing nothing is so important. How wonderful that you enjoyed it, together! 🙂

    When I go on vacation, I don’t do anything. I just lay back and enjoy the scenery. Perfect.

    We took a ‘nothing’ vacation once…it was splendid. We are planning another one this winter.

    • Do you think you might consider that area for retirement? I love Eureka Springs and enjoy using a cookbook from the “Victorian Sampler Tea Room” in that gorgeous old 2 story house at 44 Prospect. It may be closed by now. Good memories of lunches there with Cousins who have gone on to their Heavenly Rewards. You & hubby needed this do-nothing vacation because Christmas at the store means long hours. Loved your photos.

      • Funny you should say that, Delores. We have thought about NW Arkansas for retiring as we loved it when we lived there for a short time. I have one of those cook books as well! I think it is still there…but will double check that. Poppy seed muffins and the best meatloaf marinade ever came from that book! Oh yes….Christmas is coming on strong. We are attempting to prepare mentally. 🙂 Hugs ♥
