A Stay at Home Day
Do not really have any plans for the day, so have been doing chores around the house of my own, laundry, tending to the garden and yard, cooking myself some breakfast and puttering I guess. Kind of a nice change from the frantic pace that so often can find me. I tend to fill each day with people, activities, places and things and somehow have forgotten how to simply be at home and relax. I have to say, it is rather nice.
Lunch is in the oven now. Had a cool snap today so decided to do a Grilled Chicken with sauteed Carrots, Onions, Peppers and Garlic Alfredo Gratin. I have all the doors and windows open and the breeze and smells from a fresh rain are drifting through the house. It is a good day to pad aroundbarefoot without a shirt on and a care in the world. A great day for a lie about and nap.
I think I may just stay home all day today. I have no idea when I did that last. With the lights off, everything is cool and dark and it feels like a good day to retreat away and walk softly around in the silence. Maybe practice some piano later, play through some old favorites or tackle some of the new music I have been picking up lately. Sun up to sun down at home. How does that sound? I'd ask you to join me but I rather enjoy my own company. The peace and quiet suits me. I have needed it and did not know that.
I will cease for now.
