Oh the simpler things in life. In my most busiest times, I dream of that one chance to relax. It never happens! I’ve learned that to overcome the everyday mundane things in my life, I have to schedule rest.  Rest to me is enjoying quiet time away from home, office, grocery stores, my daughter’s school activities and my small business.  REST, I’m glad to say was found at a local grape vineyard.  The weather, the view, the quiet and of course the muscadine grapes were exactly what the doctor ordered.  So serene!

It wasn’t Hawaii, Italy or sunny California but for the time I was there, it was my retreat from the monotonous pandemonium of my wonderful life.
