R is for Rest


Me, alone. Life after loss.

Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. ~ Ovid


 Now that I'm retired, I should rest as needed, right? And I do, but I feel sort of guilty. Don't know why. Of all the quotes I have found for this Challenge, the one above is the one I need to take to heart. 

How I loved our garden........

  3. Maybe a smaller version of this lovely garden, Inger, one that you can handle.
    Meditate/rest on it today and see what you come up with.

  4. That was a lovely garden. I would suppose I rest - I don't get a thing done around here.

  7. Farmers let their fields go fallow for a season after long years of use. If even dirt needs a rest, how much more so do our weary hearts?

  9. Beautiful garden.

    I am similar - i can rest - i find it easy but I always or most of the time, feel like i should be "doing" instead of resting.

  11. Love the quote! Since I have been alone I seem to make more time to rest than I used to. In fact, resting is something I spend a lot of time doing. Beautiful garden!

  12. What? No weeds in your garden?

  13. Start with something small and manageable; plant something sure to thrive that you love. Let it grow from there. Don't bite off too much at first. Then you'll lose the restorative benefits of work in the garden.

  14. Perfect quote and perfect picture. Rest is necessary to replenish mind and body. Be sure to make time for it.

  16. Hi Inger - love the quote and today the 22nd is Earth Day according to the Oracle that is Google! Errol was certainly very good with his green fingers ... your garden looks quite amazing ... so green and giving ... I'm sure it'll be therapeutic to start a patch up again ... with some of the easier crops ... Have a peaceful day ... with hugs - Hilary
