Taking Time to have a little fun

I haven’t blogged in 6 months because I’ve been constantly busy.  I say that I’m going to add to my blogs, but time doesn’t permit.  I must blog this time and it’s in reference to what we all should do; take time to relax and have a little fun.  We are a social media society; texting, chatting, FB, twitter, and, etc.  We never take the time to push aside the technology and relax.  Each and every day I’m either at my laptop, smart phone or computer emailing, responding to emails, working on a book and or setting up for my next show.  In addition to those tasks, I’m a caregiver, and parent of 2.

On Memorial Day weekend, I took the liberty to walk away from all of this with a friend.  I must say that we had an excellent two day get-away from all of the technology and work.  I never felt so rejuvenated in all my life and now plan to do it again with my family of course and with friends.  My friend and I had planned to attend the music fest in Huntsville.  It was a first for me and for her.  The hotel accommodations were splendid and every place we needed to be was within the area.

Before we partook in the festivities of the blues/music fest, we visited the Botanical Gardens in Huntsville.  The Alice in Wonderland exhibit was at the Botanical Gardens.  We felt like children again.  We seesawed, played on the swings, took pictures of the beautiful flowers and scenery and enjoyed the Butterfly house.  Before we had realized we had spent, 2 ½ hours at the Botanical Gardens.  We learned, played, captured and relaxed. 

As you can see in our picture, we were feeling the bliss at the moment.  This is something that we take time to do at least once a week. We promised ourselves that we should take time out every other month.  We had our smart phones, but we pushed away to enjoy life.    

I recommend that everyone should push away from the technology and have some fun. 

Think about it
