Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 312 – Blank

“Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something.”

Winnie The Pooh

Thanks, Spidey for finding a fabulous quote from my favourite stuffed bear!

This thought realy resonates with me, for some reason, right now.

I’m at a time in my life, where doing nothing doesn’t even feel like an option. I’ve got a book to write, a class to teach, teenagers to feed (constantly), a house to sell… It doesn’t leave much time for doing nothing.

But, then again, my best ideas often come when I take a step back, sit down, and let life go by for a little while, without me feelinng pressure.

A good book, a comfy sofa and a cup of tea, is my idea of doing nothing. Yes, even that is productive, as I get to read another book from my extensive TBR list, but it’s still a time I can switch off from reality, refresh, and come back stronger than before.

I have been trying to do one of these ‘nothing’ days regularly, recently, so Sunday is my day to switch off in the afternoon, unless anything urgent comes up, snuggle up with my book, and quite often, Sonu Singh by my side, and lose myself into a fictional world.

And it does refresh me. Those few hours give me a chance to stop living my crazy life, and chill. I also get a chance to reflect upon what I have going on in my life with a much fresher mind, too.

I’m definitely looking forward to an afternoon like that, today, because I am pretty sure I’ll be stressing, next week, as we get ready to open the classroom doors physically, to the whole class again.

So, what’s your take on doing nothing?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps, and try to get an hour of nothing in there, somewhere.   

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 283 – Busy Doing Nothing

“Nothing is better than being busy doing nothing.”

Lau Tzo

Thanks for the confirmation, Spidey, that doing nothing is a thing!

Actually, I say busy doing nothing, but it’s not quite true.

The holidays are here, and we have nothing specific planned. That would be better to say.

The way things are, right now, I think it’s better to not have too much planned, incase things take a turn for the worse.

Actually, as I type, the US still has cases in the high figures, and European countries that were convinced they’d kicked Covid-19 to the curb, are now reporting case numbers rising, sparking fears of a second wave.

Here, in the UK there have been few areas where numbers have spiked, causing local lockdown, rather than national. And our dear BoJo has put the brakes on any more loosening of the lockdown for a further two weeks, to curb the chances of the spikes spreading further.

When I said we had no plans, that was a little white lie.

One thing I was desperate to do (if you know me, you’ll already be able to guess what I’m about to type) was to see my parents as soon as it was humanely possible.

After factoring in orthodontic appointments, cricket trainings, and a few others, it was settled that we would go for a couple of days, to see the folks as I haven’t seen them since the New Year.

But now, hearing everything that is happening, I wonder whether that is a wise decision?

Do we go and visit them, satisfy our longing to see and hug them, but possibly put them at risk of the virus, as we will be coming in from somewhere else? Then there is the flipside, do we risk going away, even for a few days, and possibly bring something back this way?

Ideally, we (meaning the kids and I) wanted to go away as there was work that needed doing in the house. If we weren’t around then Hubby Dearest could supervise this work (supposing the builders etc. could do that week) without worrying about us all bouncing off the walls, too.

And while I ponder what to do, I still have other weeks to fill, doing nothing, too.

So, I’m writing.

That’s not nothing, agreed, but it takes a whole lot of nothing time for me to be able to create.

And so I shall, and from this ‘busy doing nothing’ time, may wonderful words be born!

So tell me, what do you do when you’re ‘busy doing nothing’?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤
