After throwing my back out and being rather useless all of last week (and under orders from my new and lovely physio, who we don’t want to upset) I took it easy on Saturday. Pulled out my paints, and floundered for a while making a great mess. But it was relaxing.
One of my favourite pass times is picnics in the park. Large expanses of grass, big trees providing shade from the glaring sunshine, and lazy relaxation time with friends. An extension of this is Teddy Bears Picnics; with a loose definition of “teddy bear”!
(This year along with Titan the chihuahua, We had a pukeko and an elephant.)
Being Summer, we headed for the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens on the harbour for a piece of grass to spread out on for a few hours. We parked under an enormous fig tree (is there any other kind?) for protection and made ourselves comfortable with our cameras.
There were lots of people around, all doing their own version of nothing.
We did a little juggling and poi swinging,
some wild animal photography,
and personally I worked on a sock.
When was the last time you took time out to do your own brand of nothing in the great outdoors?
