thoughts on home

i so love to spend quiet time at home. to sit in a sunny window, to read, to listen to music, to putter, to reorganize, to clean, to nap, to dream... sometimes i worry that i may be frittering away these days of my life, that i should get out and go, go, go while i still can, that i can stay home years from now when i'm old and infirm. but these tranquil days at home are rejuvenating somehow, and shore me up for the busy, fast-paced days that i know will inevitably come again.

I can completely empathize with you and feel the same way.

Truly truly what I am feeling in retirement.

i feel the same way. we should be
encouraged that when the time
comes that we have to stay at home,
we will be content.

I feel the same most of the time. I'm glad it's not just me. :-)

Isn't that what winter is for? I do long for the days when I can sit outside in the warm sun for hours!

So true! Nothing like a day off to prepare you for what's ahead.

It's wonderful to be able to enjoy being in the moment without feeling that you should be "doing" something.
Those moments are the most fulfilling and we are "doing" something, we are just being.

Great sentiment. Your photo truly compliments what you said. Almost makes me want to be back in a cold climate just to be able to hunker down on a cold winter day with a good book and a quilt.

Then I come to my senses. Anyway, love the image.

oh i so know what you mean. treasure these moments. there is nowhere you need to be but where you find yourself most at peace. if you needed to be somewhere else, then you would not feel so nourished and peaceful. flow with it.
