An Hour Unplanned

Yesterday I came home an hour early and realized I had not planned
what to do with my time.  Isn't it funny how we spend so much of
our time working and achieving goals that we never just relax and be?

So I relaxed for a few minutes on the deck enjoying the sunshine
and the wind blowing.  I started thinking about the garden DH had
planted and wondered if I could fix a big healthy salad for dinner.
DH wouldn't be home for dinner so it would just be me. 

So I started gathering cucumbers for the salad.

Wow! I see where they get the word "bountiful".


I visited DH's garden across the yard.  Just found a sunflower!

So I went inside and made a salad from yesterdays tomatoes
and the last of the lettuce from the garden.

Then I heard the most beautiful sound!  It was raining!

I took my salad out on the side porch and ate it while I watched
the rain.  And it was the best salad because it came out of our
garden.....and I was eating it alone....and I had come home an hour
early......and.... it was an hour unplanned.  It was WONDERFUL!

And then at almost one hour exactly the rain stopped.

Back to work!

I hope you take unplanned time to just be.  Sometimes we as
women feel like we have to be working ALL the time.  It wears
us out.

Hope you are having a good day!


  1. Does it ever wear us out!!!! I hope you have many more "extra" hours in your days ahead.

    blessings, jilly

  2. Your Hubbys garden looks great. Ours are still in the baby stage. Isn't it wonderful to get fresh produce out of your back yard. I wish we could do it all year round.
