My Ideal Introvert Day

sittingFireBookMy ideal day would be a misty, drizzling spring day in Oregon.  Just cloudy enough to make you want to sleep in, but not dark enough to be gloomy.  I’m be in comfy clothes like sweat pants and a warm turtleneck sweater, with nice fuzzy slippers on my feet.  I’d be lounging with my feet up, sitting by the warmth of the fire, with a nice, hot cup of tea on the table beside me.

I’d have a purring cat curled up on my lap.  That’s always important.  I’d invite one of my pugs up on my lap, but they always knock the book out of my hands.  The cats just want a soft, comfy place up off the floor, so they are much better companions.

I would be reading, sometimes with my eyes open and sometimes with my eyes closed, but I’d be reading.  What would be book be?  A good cozy mystery, written by my favorite author, Nancy Atherton.  I love her Aunt Dimity books.  She has a new one coming out mid April and I already have it on pre-order at Amazon.

That’s my ideal day.  A nice quiet one.  Time to read and recharge my introvert batteries.  Cee would be off on a photo shoot, I know, so my peace and quiet would end when she came home and wanted to show off all of her new treasures.  I’d enjoy all that she captured, but would be even more appreciative of the time she had given me to read.  I don’t think I can ever get enough of that.

Hi.  I’m Chris.  I’m an introvert.  Look for my ongoing series debunking the introvert myths (Sunday) and introvert cartoons (Wednesday), plus anything else interesting that I find in the meantime.  Come and share with like-minded introverts.  I also contribute to the new food blog Three’s Cooking, learning to cook from the heart, for the soul.

  5. Well you had me up to the cats and dogs … Assume pugs are those dogs?
    Otherwise all sounded perfect to me. I love having big chunks like that on my own and then have a partner come back with exciting and interesting tidbits and news from the world outside, just like you with Cee!

  12. My ideal day would be a day when my (unemployed) hubby leaves the apartment all to me, so I can lounge around, read, watch sappy movies & doze as I please before he comes back with all his noise & commotion.

  14. I’m enjoying your ideal introvert day right now. It’s noon and I still haven’t showered or dressed yet. My wife is taking care of sick relatives so I’ve been editing photos all morning with my pc purring on my lap. It’s a slightly overcast day so I don’t feel too guilty about still sitting here. Oh, and I’ve got classical music playing in the background. Heaven!
