Mental Vacation


I'm working today but my mind isn't on it. Obviously. Outside the air is light. Clouds are puffy and lazy. Bees are buzzing about. Buds are swelling and dew is drying and I'm longing to hide in a leafy alcove and watch it all. And yawn. Maybe sleep. Definitely lose myself in a book. I think I need a mental vacation.

Holly Hill would be wonderful right about now...

Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes. I had a quiet, happy day, and hope that's telling of the sort of year I'll have, too. -Brin

I could use a mental vacation also since a real one isn't in the budget! So happy you had a peaceful birthday, well earned!

Hi Brin,
I have been away and am just now starting to return to reading my favorite blogs. First off, I wanted to wish you a belated happy birthday. I hope you have fun-filled year with many special moments!
Oh…Holly Hill looks so relaxing … I can just see you running a place like this with your own touches, of course. Each room personally decorated by you. A garden out back that somehow makes it’s way into your kitchen. A little corner in your cottage that sells your treasures – be it food, hand-made items, books or special finds. A wonderful bed and breakfast retreat to relax and refresh the soul! You have so many talents that I know it would be a special place to visit!
