These muggy days of summer…

Strolling outside with coffee cup in hand



I am reminded of soooo



much work to do.

So. I do what any smart soul would do. Turn on my heel and take my coffee back inside.



running.



But along the way back



Maybe I look up

and over

and through

and I slow down



just a tad

Sometimes it seems the ever-increasing list of things to do



can leave one feeling totally undone.

To accepting an undone Sunday



and enjoying the coffee.

Cute Sunday morning post, Linda! Love the butterfly. I love my Sunday mornings...we have a Sunday morning routine that eases us into the following week...hours of peace and quiet...and a little CBS Sunday Morning...love how they end with a "touch of nature" Once that ends, I have to get up and do something constructive :)

Sounds like a good Plan B. "B" is for beautiful.

Ok Ok off to do some yard work. Coffee is finished!

Hey Steve...how is the big huge boulder in your landscape coming??

Carla@DesignintheWoods said...

Oh yes, I'm totally there. We must not get overwhelmed, that is the stuff of stress. Being a bit lazy on a Sunday is good for your health and well-being!

A perfect Sunday to let things go undone. What a beautiful distraction you have in your garden!

Jane said...

Great summer Sunday morning...
Recently, the boys and wives and dogs have been showing up on Sunday afternoons just to hang out. Blender is humming, pina coladas are ready...snacks at poolside...then grilling something for dinner. It's so much fun just lazing about with family...

MissBliss said...

Hear hear! I am glad you slowed down and enjoyed all that beauty. Thanks for sharing it too :)

Focus on the good things...I like it.
Stunning photos too. We have bananas too, they get a bit messy don't they, we have a tiny garden so it's not hard for them to take over the world.

What a lovely garden...

You deserve that coffee break,

Vix said...

Geez, you sound like Mr Vix did this weekend when we were out in the yard and I was taking some photos. We were both a little confused about what we'd planted ages ago and what was a flowery weed, ha.

Let me help you out the way I did him:

"Embrace the gorgeous LUSHNESS! Strive for MORE, not less, abandon!"

As always, your yard is stunning and your photos beautiful. No need to rush that yardwork!

Cobalt Violet said...

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Yes, Some pink, I do! Look for it under Linda Roberts. I'll look for yours. Mine is teensy....but love finding inspiration!

Farmgirl Paints said...

I can't believe you live in that tropical paradise. I know I'd love to spend some time there. Everything else will get done.

Michele said...

Beautiful photography! Thank you for sharing your lovely garden.

Ha! I do the coffee stroll out to the backyard and try not to step in the puked-up mangrove crabs and mullet fish guts that the ospreys deposit on our dock. Florida living is glamourous, right? ;)

Karen @ Mignardise said...

Enjoy all that exotic foliage! Your photos are gorgeous.

Renae Moore said...

Love-er-ly Linda! It is sometimes overwhelming to see all that NEEDS to be gone and overlook the beauty all around us. Well done....hope your coffee was good!

Erica said...
