Monday's Muse- Unplugged

Just a moment before everyone returns. Took off for an impromptu (long) weekend with friends. Have enjoyed the forced withdrawal from the everyday, including the digital world. I get to see my husband & son each day but there is something about new surroundings that help open my eyes to what fun creative people they truly are. I know this but it can get overlooked to much in the day to day stuff.

Our friends decided to celebrate their anniversary early & invited us to join them at a lovely resort. So glad we accepted the invitation. I mean, how often do you get to eat pizza while floating in a pool & watching a movie on a giant inflatable screen? And with people whose company you truly enjoy? I'm gonna guess not often enough.

And to top off a fabulous weekend, they took DH & the little guy to a nearby water park today. I stayed behind and enjoyed doing NOTHING! Just napped, read magazines (ok I did sneak in 1 load of laundry) & relaxed on the balcony. Even managed to stay off the computer until now - wow!

They'll be back soon for 1 more night of fun before we return to "real life". Before they arrive I think I'll pop over to Maternal Spark, creator of Monday's Muse. Saw something about some new forums. Check it out - maybe I'll see you there


  1. So glad that you got a mini-vacation in! Sometimes "doing nothing" frees up your mind and lets your subconscious access new ideas. LOVE your 2inabush painting-showed it to my husband! Maybe for my birthday *sigh*!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! : )

  3. I snagged a moment of peace this past weekend as well and it was great to just let my brain rest. Here's to quality alone time! I'd love to see you in the forums...looks like a great little group is forming there :)

  4. Glad to hear you snagged a mini vacation! It sounds like you had a blast.

  5. Sounds like a fabulous vacation!! And what could be more perfect than doing "nothing"? LOL

  6. there's nothing like a real getaway to recharge. I love those days when I sleep, eat and read magazines :)
