Postcards From the Beach
Sunrises, walks on the beach, afternoons by the pool, tourist fun, sunshine, blue skies, knitting, reading and more....we have definitely found our bliss by the ocean this week. This has been a slow holiday, nothing extraordinary, just simple, ordinary days. Each morning we wake with no plans and let the day before us unfold as it would like. It's been a lovely rhythm, and one that I have welcomed with an open heart.
There were no big plans for this holiday, and I didn't intend to actually take a week away from work. I packed my computer, and my notes for website updates, homeschooling plans and more, but the Universe had other plans for me. My laptop, a brand new one, died on Monday. Literally died. I took it in to have it looked at and the estimated work time was two to three weeks. I'll be home by then, so I collected it from the shop, and it sits in my bag, with my work. That, right there, was my sign, a big one if you ask me, to sit back and relax this week. To let whatever I thought I would get done go, and to just soak up the chance to relax. And that is exactly what I have done.
Refreshed describes how I am feeling right now, and full...both heart and soul are full. We still have a few more days at the beach, and I fully intend to sink into them and soak up the ocean breeze, the sunshine and the fresh air before packing up for our drive home.
Wishing you a beautiful weekend, my friends.

bummer about your computer....that is crummy but I guess you unplugged!!ReplyDelete
I did unplugged, and am still somewhat unplugged as it is still in the shop. Using the old one, and trying to get some stuff done.Delete
I'm so sorry about your laptop! What an absolute bummer! We keep having things "die" here lately too. I'm so glad you got to go soak up some sunshine and listen to wavesReplyDelete
Big time bummer, but felt good to let it go and just relax. I hope things in your world are better now, and that nothing else has "died". xoDelete
What a wonderful way to start a holiday, the joy of not being able to work (even if you wanted to ;) )! Enjoy xoxReplyDelete
Yes, it was a joy once I got over the initial shock. Back home now, computer is still in the shop, and I am using the old one to try and get some stuff done. xoDelete
Dear Kim, I recently found your blog and it has taken me a couple of weeks, but I have just read all the archives from oldest to now, phew! What a lovely place to visit. I am a keen veggie gardener (in pots) and I am in Australia, so opposite growing seasons to you two, but I am inspired by what you do. My best wishes to you and Reece and I look forward to keeping up with your adventures going forward. Kind Regards, Tania in Melbourne, Australia.ReplyDelete

Oh, don't you just love it when laptops die? I think sometimes they have to. Enjoy your time!ReplyDelete
Well, not really, but I have enjoyed the bit of unplugged time :)Delete
