Wow, what a great morning this was to stop the world and get off for a few hours! When I got up, earlier than usual, it was cloudy and huge snowflakes were drifting down from the Heavens! It was beautiful! I know everyone is tired of wintry weather. I am, too, but it seemed, somehow, relaxing this morning – just what I needed after several days of busyness. With me, it’s not just something I like to do occasionally, but it’s a must! I have to have a little “down time.”
After a particularly stressful time like the holidays, entertaining visitors for a few days or just a busy week, if I don’t have a day to STWAGO, I’m not a very pleasant person. I guess you could say I get a little cranky! After many years of marriage, Mr. H. knows when it’s time to let me have my time. And he does.
Without interruption, it takes only a few hours. Alone. Preferably morning. I stay in my pajamas, consume large amounts of hot tea and coffee, sit by the fire and read or listen to music. And if I’m lucky, the phone doesn’t ring and no one pays us an unexpected visit. I was lucky today!
And now... as I sip my last cup of coffee, I feel more relaxed than if I’d slept ten hours! I’m ready to face the world again with a smile.
Have a great day!
