It’s a CRAZY Time to Relax!

Busy week at your house?  It is at ours.

But sometimes, in the midst of all the craziness, a body’s just got to slow down and relax.
Let’s do that together for a minute …

Go ahead and sit a spell…  It’s okay. You have time.
Soak in the blue skies … and the artistry of the fountain.
Close your eyes … and listen to the water.  Let it replace your mental “to do” list.
Smile …
Now take a deep breath and return to your day.  You’re welcome.
I’ll be sharing this virtual set of “relaxation” notecards tonight at the notecard party at A Haven for Vee.  If you missed our field trip last year to Clark Gardens in Texas, you can read about it HERE.  It was such a visual treat, and so very relaxing.

What’s your favorite way to relax?


  1. This is relaxing. Yesterday after riding bikes with my little one we stopped in the park, I laid down on the top of a picnic table, looked up through the pecan trees and enjoyed the wonderful breeze…how relaxing, listening to the sound of nature, and allowing my old muscles to relax LOL

    Enjoy your week
