Rest and Relaxation

I'm returning to work today after having 5 days off (including last weekend). Boy howdy, I needed that break.
I'm feeling rested and back to my cheerful self.
I am super grateful that I know my limits and can go off the grid when I need to and get my energy back.
Nothing makes me feel better than when I am creating, whether it is writing in my journal, making a greeting card, drawing a little Zentangle, baking up something special in the kitchen, making a to-do list or reading a great book. When I am tapped out of energy, I rest. When I'm rested, I get grateful.
Looking Ahead:
Getting geared up for the A to Z Blog Challenge 2015. My theme this year is "Create".  I'll be choosing words from a to z and writing every day except Sunday.
My first post is done and scheduled to for April 1st.  I created a list of ideas and will go from there. This will be my 2nd year participating in the challenge and I'm jazzed about it.  The best part is that we are encouraged to read 5 new blogs from the list every day.  Last year I picked up quite a few new blogs to follow that I have really enjoyed. 
Until then, I hope you have the best day ever!
love, susan

  1. I'm inspired by your challenge. My personal challenge is Drawing A to Z. I bought a copy of 642 Tiny Things To Draw almost a week ago and haven't drawn a thing. The first prompt is "cupcake sprinkles." I had to Google "sprinkles." The number 642 is intimidating, so Drawing A to Z feels like a better place to start. Thanks for the idea.

    Wait. Perhaps it's the word "challenge" that's done me in in the past. It's like the "war" on poverty. Declare war and there is opposition on two or more fronts. In my mind, challenge smacks of proving someone is wrong in order for me to be right. See how I make my life more ___________. (Fill in the blank.) No matter. Here I go, thanks to you.

    I wonder what you A will be. I know what mine is. Wow! That was easy. Now, I'm off to draw.

It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks. We were in Alaska last week for 8 days and before that I can't even tell you what happened.  T...
