"Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future...Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us."  Maya Angelou

 My 3 little nappers.

My 3 little nappers.


I think we have packed so much into this summer that we have reached the point where we need to recharge and disconnect a little. Powering down is going to be penciled into a To Do list in the very near future. With school looming over the horizon, I am dreading the ever-present and nagging reality of early morning alarms, lunchboxes and too much homework.

So, before it all comes crashing down, I will sharpen my pencils and write out our escape plan. We will schedule some much needed time in cooler temps with no particular agenda but to explore, see and do something new. I will cherish these few last moments that I escape regular days and trade them in for some much needed rest and relaxation.

Today we rest. Because tomorrow will come soon enough.
