NaBloPoMo: Hot Mess Needs a Trip to the Beach


What do you do to nourish your soul when you feel emotionally depleted?

What do I do when I’m a hot mess, you ask?
If I need a recharge, then I make plans to go to the beach. Even if I don’t get in the water, I love sitting out in the sun and watching the waves. Sometimes I take pictures at the beach. I like swimming also. Sand is so messy but I don’t mind getting a little sand everywhere.
All I need to take is a towel, a book, a camera and flip-flops. Don’t forget the suntan lotion or sunscreen. No one needs a sunburn. I’ve been known to catnap at the beach and get sunburnt. This year, I might even take a big floppy hat. It should make for a nice photograph.
I have to admit that I love living by the lake during the summer.


โ€œJust a small town girl โ€“ living in a lonely world.โ€ Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. I love to retreat to my garden for some peace and quiet. if it is nice out, I grab a book and a glass of wine (or if cool, a pot of tea). All phones stay in the house!
