Smart Tips Tuesday

We all need a break once in awhile and taking that time can be difficult for some of us. We get in the fast lane and figure we had better not exit for fear of getting 'broke down'. But in reality that is what will happen to us if we don't exit for a bit.
My friend, Sharon suggested a 'meet at Arbor Quest Winery up in the hills in Spokane Valley, Wa. on Monday for some photo taking (we both love photography). We brought a sack lunch and she brought her lovely daughter, Kim. We viewed the grounds and found a lovely shady spot for lunch and of course, a bottle of their famous Riesling. We spent the better part of the day and I soon lost that 'I should be doing...." feeling and had an immensely enjoyable day!! I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated, thanks, Sharon and Kim!
It sounds trite but by taking some time with friends to just do nothing, can 'refuel' your cells for that other part of your life.....give it a rest! That's my Smart Tips Tuesday for this week.


  1. And thank you for making the day special. I haven't had that much fun for sooo long. Made me forget all that other crap going on in my life!

  2. Ahhhhh, your pictures are lovely! Nothing better than a good friend, a glass of wine and to be surrounded by so much beauty.

  3. Good advice...and something I need to follow!!
