My Happy Place
Cool breeze. The sound of rain. Hot Red Rose Tea. Enthralling book. That's my favourite way to spend an evening. For the three years we've lived in this house, I've never had a spot that felt like mine. This one isn't perfect, of course (I'd pick a comfy wing back chair instead of the recliner), but when I push the chair right up to the wide-open window, I feel that peace and at-home-ness I've been looking for.
I've even almost stopped being self-conscious when the neighbours walk by. I shouldn't be! It's less awkward to be caught staring out a window than to be caught staring into one! This past week or two has had the added pleasure of the blooming Asiatic lily's perfume drifting in when the breeze is just right. I'd love to hear what your favourite spot is. Have you blogged about it? If so, leave the link in the comments! If not, tell me all about it!
