My 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.
