Is this a Better Way to Spend Resort Girl Days?

January 17, 2018

Consume less
Buy less
Reuse more
Give away
But save for a rainy day
Share because you care
Dare to
Right size
Resize your mind
Find more time
To be kind
Put your worries on delay
Discover a new way
Don’t let your thoughts scatter
Focus on a new matter
When it comes to stress
Refuse to say yes
Get up and move
Find your own groove
Stretch more
Step outside of the door
You just might
Find life
Is brighter
As your spirit is lighter
And your soul soars
With fewer chores
Grab a cup of joe
Let its warmth glow
Hibernate inside
Under the sheets
Delight in a movie
Until it’s complete
Have a lazy day
You may
Just say
This is a better way
To spend my days!

The Spanish Moss Appears to Fall from the Sky

August 23, 2016

Oh, My

How the Spanish Moss Appears to Fall from the Sky

With its Hues of Grey

Against the Humid Haze

Of a Hot Southern Summer Day

And Trickles Down

And all Around

The Island Palms and FernsDSC_0285 (1)

What did this Resort Girl Learn?

To Find Comfort in the Beauty of Nature that Surrounds…

You, Resort Girl


The Beauty of a Morning Walk, Resort Girl

August 4, 2016

Oh, how blessed I am as a Resort Girl to walk amongst the beauty of the tropical trees.  DSC_0292And to see the birds nesting high against the morning sky.DSC_0293With palm trees providing shade for creatures running ’round.DSC_0281Moss adds texture to the scenery by dangling down upon the bushes and purple chives.DSC_0294And on my way back home, the tropical flowers caught my eye by sprouting up and giving beauty to begin a glorious morning. What a blessing it is to be surrounded by such free and natural gifts. What a gift it is to be a Resort Girl and live this way of life.DSC_0283


Lazy Days of Warm Southern Ways for Resort Girl

March 15, 2016

The sun casts shadows on my café table top

While in the background southern music rocks

Screens let the cool river breezes blow in but stop

The bees and buzzin’ creatures from passing by

Oh, my

What a lazy day

It is just to sit and stay

While my lips


A hot mug of peach tea

There’s nothing worryin’ me

‘Cept the cold cut sandwich with mayo

Side of sweet potato fries – the way to go

When the waiter comes for my order by

Oh, my

How I am wishin’ this day

Will stay

And never end

Blessed are those lazy days

Of hot tea and warm southern ways

Nothin’ botherin’ me!






One more S’more, Please, for Resort Girl

January 21, 2016


The fire pit

Is lit

The chairs are ready

My hands are steady

The mood is mellow

And there sits a white fluffy marshmallow

Ready for my wooden stick

My lips are eager in anticipation

waiting to taste the delicious

Burnt gooey edges

As the melted marshmallow wedges

Between the thick dark chocolate slice

And crispy graham crackers…

Finally, the warm gooey bite

Then my mind lingers back to the night

And the warmth of the fire and dear

Friends who are near

Oh how I wish to enjoy this moment some more

So please….just give me one more s’more ReynoldsPlanationSmorePit
