Lazy Saturdays

Sometimes I am surprised by just how selfish I can be.  I would say I am a generous person, I give my time and money freely, but in reality my time is a huge thing to me.  This weekend we went to see my mum.  Really we were summoned, she even admitted it laughingly of course.  But nonetheless we were called and asked strongly to come visit.  Now it isn't that I don't love my mum, I do, her new husband not so much and giving up my time on the weekend to drive for 4 hours and spend that time thinking about all the clover I could be pulling and trees I could be planting etc etc etc..not at all.

So do you even slightly understand how I felt, no probably not, I know I sound terrible.  Anyway we went, picnic packed and wine cooled ready to spend the day with my mum and Bruce.  Well surprise surprise, we had a really lovely day.  Ashleigh and Danielle came with us and we found a table down by the ocean and spread out our lunch.  Of course camera in hand I was snapping away both at her house and at the beach.

So what do you think a beautiful texture from Kim Klassen and a pretty pom pom flower at mum's neighbours.  Two ways to view the same thing pretty cool huh?!

Again some Kim Klassen textures over the Margate beachside.  Cool!!!!

Kim is also running a Stay-cation school in August so go check that out to.  I need inspiration constantly so I am really looking forward to being a part of the class.

In the end we all had a really lovely day, it was nice to see mum and lovely to share the day with her.  I hate feeling selfish, I hate to think that since she is getting on our time is slowly slipping away too, not a nice thought but too true.  So I am trying to be more generous with my time, not be selfish in sharing it around.  How about you?


  1. Kim I understand this, sometimes you just want to do your stuff, right now I am feeling pulled with my company and have just decided that I am going to enjoy them as much as I can, because I know I will be lonely in the winter. When we go to see Mom it is a ten hour drive, I talk to her everyday on the phone, sometimes I wonder why I don't get things accomplished. Usually at least an hour everyday. I love her so, I have 3 friends in their 80's and when they come for tea, it sometimes turns into a whole afternoon...I have Hermit tendancies so I really work on all of this. glad you had a nice visit.
    take care. hugs

  2. We've been thinking of the same things, apparently. Generosity. Money is so much easier to share. Time, now that's precious. And very, very hard to come by.

    My uncle recently died and I am reminded that the only time I ever regret is that which I didn't spend. I'm with you, my friend. I'm with you.

  3. I don't think you are selfish at all. I think you were torn between two things that were very important to you: Taking care of yourself, which we must do if we are to have anything to give to the loves of our lives; or being present for someone you love who has asked for the best gift of all--you. It's a tough call. I'm glad this one worked out well for you and that you had a good time. May you yet find the time to pull those weeds and plant those trees.

  4. the textures are wonderful.

    Sending you a big HUG...I know you are generous, kind and loving. Enjoy the moment...that's always my advice ;)

    one love.

  5. thanks everyone for the support and true it is the moment and enjoying it that counts thank you
