Thinking about what visually is refreshing, brings to mind so many possibilities. Cold drinks on a hot day. A great pool plunge. Visiting with friends that you share a deep connection with. Experimenting with a new dish and it turns out amazing. Exercising your creativity. Learning a new skill. The list goes on.
Serving to refresh or invigorate someone (adjective);Oxford Dictionary
Welcome or stimulating because it is new or invigorating (adjective)
Change of Scenery Invigorates
For us, at this moment of time, it is refreshing to find a change of scenery. Leave home, shop, projects and our day to day routine is refreshing change. We finally set out for our traveling last week. First, the process of getting ready and moving into Maximus (the custom truck camper) was a nice change of pace. Second, being on the move and elsewhere is refreshing.
A Welcome Refreshment
Lacking photos of a sweaty me savoring an ice cold drink, I opted instead to show you an equally welcome treat. It’s a warm day and a drive day. It’s time for a break at a rest stop. Seems like a great time to break into a Klondike bar.
Here’s another one of our traditional favorites. I can’t succumb to this too often as it’s so sweet! From our Instagram, take a look at our date shake creation. This treat was necessary! We got stuck in an extreme traffic backup and decided to just pause in a local shopping area outside of Indio, CA. A very necessary refreshing break.
My Favorite “Refreshing” Quote
It’s fun to discover quotations that align with a theme. In this case, there were many quotes about refreshing the mind and sleeping well to be refreshed. In the end, Picasso’s quote below was what caught my eye. Loving, being loved, discovering new loves all give us refreshing connections and shared experiences that we can’t find in just our thoughts, solo activities or material things.
Love is the greatest refreshment of lifePablo Picasso

I love all your refreshing images, Cheryl! You look happy enjoying your treat! I changed the theme to fun feathers around the middle of May to accommodate all my spring birds, but it was refreshing to read yours. Although I go on a one-week break this coming Sunday, you are welcome to share a post about birds if you wish later and link to this post again. Sorry! Enjoy your memorial day weekend.

Hi Terri! Yes I did figure out the change in theme as I was finishing this version and just decided to keep it. Thank you for reading. Enjoy your weekend and blog break. We’re trekking from WY to our ID lot over the weekend and unfortunately it’ll be very rainy starting Sat am.
