"There's never enough time to do all the NOTHING you want."
Bill Watterson, creator, Calvin and Hobbes
I've had this quote on the front of the fridge for several months. I've wanted to share it with you but something else always seems to crop up. Here it is. Do you feel this way sometime?
I find myself feeling this way often. I've been wanting to sew and create but don't seem to ever have several days in a row when I don't have something I need to do. It's frustrating.
However, on the other hand, when I do have one day with nothing to do, I find myself doing nothing at all and loving it.
At that time, I take time to watch all the hummingbirds sticking their beaks in the candelabra plant and the bourganvillas. Anything that has a throat to it that they can get the nectar out of.
Add to the hummingbirds, the butterflies, the birds singing and I become lulled by all the beauty of nature.
I'll take a book up on the roof terrace or on the downstairs patio. Recline on the chaise with all intentions of reading. Next thing I know, I've put the book on the table nearby and take a siesta.
Yes, there is seldom enough time of "nothing".
What I find also when there is nothing to do is that I'm the most content. Being in the garden or cooking some new recipe or whatever, it's so great to not have an agenda.
Enjoying the simple things of life while doing "nothing" is a great way to live, I think.
