Refreshing on a Monday

refresh:  verb \ri-ˈfresh\: to make (someone) have more energy and feel less tired or less hot : to give someone more of (a drink) : to fill (someone's glass, cup, etc.) again 

It is Monday after a long holiday weekend.  Are you feeling the need to refresh, reenergize?  

I sure was.  How do you refresh?  Do you? (You need to!!)
I started the day with a hike.  It always feels so good to that first thing in the morning.  I may whine every now and then on the way up, but on the way down I always say, "Let's go again tomorrow!"  Nothing like a little sweat and amazing views to refresh the senses and clear the brain.
I also love to peruse blogs and sites that are visually delightful.  This refreshment is not about collecting ideas, it is about seeing something that makes you smile, something that makes you sigh and say ahhh, something that gets the creative thoughts flowing.  These are sites that might feature a totally different style than mine, a different product, a different view on life. Places like:
Jeanne Oliver - Part 3
23paige knudsen
And now I am ready to create.  I hope you have a chance to recharge and refresh today!

  1. I really like this, Becky. I like visiting some of these blogs too, but I see a couple I'm not that familiar with that I'll check out as well. I'm going to enjoy some time hanging out with all four of my kiddos (including the oldest, married) this afternoon with no "expectations". I needed a good reminder to allow myself to be refreshed today!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
