Today I needed to get some things done that had nothing to do with cleaning. I have a Reader’s Group this weekend, for instance, and had yet to read a book for this month. Done now. I also wanted to take some photos for this month’s Flickr scavenger hunts, because it has been ages since I had time to compete, and I have been missing them.

So yeah…I goofed off again. But it seems to me that I am gradually progressing, even with the days off, so I don’t feel too bad about it.

Today I went to Mayfield Park for my periodic peacock fix. I hit a good time — the whole park was in bloom. Here are some of the resulting photos:









Thoroughly relaxing, restful, rejuvenating day. I highly recommend a trip to your nearest wildflower/garden spot when you need a breath of fresh air…or a break from cleaning. (See how I got that back around to on topic…? 😉 )

    well, if nothing else you’ve started blogging daily, without fail.

    And it’s expected that as things take shape, and get to where they need to be, you’d be spending less time. Even if it’s not, how can you expect to tackle an undertaking if you don’t take time to rejuvinate your soul?

    Loved the pics!

    • My thoughts exactly. The daily blogging has been very cleansing in its own right. And it may not be my usual subject matter or style of writing, but that in itself has been a bit therapeutic. 🙂

  2. Love the photos! My favourite is the cherry blossom (I think). In Toronto, the winter flowers are only just starting to come up – I’m so excited! Time to find out how many bulbs are left after those squirrels got to them… 🙂
