Doing Nothing



"Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing,
of just going along,
listening to all the things you can't hear."
from Pooh's Little Instruction Book inspired by A.A. Milne

Looking forward to a quick holiday break on the beach and doing nothing. . . . . . . well except for maybe a little sky watching.


Have lots of sparkling blue skies lately so its back to using the beach to frame the sky but in Sky Watch Friday, you will find 100s of bloggers from all over the world with their own view of the sky.

Hi Mandy,
I'm so glad you came by today and left a message. The white fever can really get a hold of one can't it? I'm so happy to meet you and look forward to looking through your blog. Have a great vacation!
Hugs,
June

"Doing Nothing", or just being as I call it is extremely valuable. And nature is a great inspiration for that!

Something about a clear blue sky over a beach that just relaxes me on sight. I never underestimate anything Pooh Bear says.

Hi Mandy, Pooh is so wise, don't you just love him! My father used to say, when asked what he was doing ,"As little as possible!". Nothing beats lazy days, enjoy your break, cheers Katherine

Sylvia K said...

What a fabulous beach! And what a fantastic shot, Mandy! Surely would love to spend some time there!

Have a lovely weekend!

Hi Mandy, Pooh's reflections on life are always worth pondering! Have a great time listening and observing (and relaxing) on your break.

Hope your holiday is everything you need, everything you want. The beach is always a perfect place to find both.

Hello again Mandy..
Sorry not dropped by in a while.. School break meant a houseful of noise for 6 weeks... blogging like my ears suffered :O)
The view you have for Sky Watch would have been a perfect place for me to have escaped to....
I would not have missed the noise then grand children made to be honest... they fill the house with light and love.. Have a great weekend
