Down Time

Saturday dawned sunny and warm, and after a week of wet and dreary weather, I wanted to be anywhere but in the house.  

We drove to a park on the southern shore of Lake Winnebago.  Sometimes you just go where the spirit leads you.

Sometimes it is indeed beside still water.

You don't think about work or the to-do list or even sewing.  

You just take it all in.

Get a fresh perspective.

Try a different outlook.

Check out the bigger picture.

Feel the sun on your skin, the wind in your hair.


Cast a line, see what bites.
 
Or sit in the weeds, poke around.


Rest those ruffled feathers.

You never know what may come around the corner.

Inspiration is everywhere.
