Cozyness of Home

It’s been a very busy and stressful week and it’s Friday night.  I am happy to just be home, with everyone home too by 7:30 pm and no where to go and no one to pick up and nothing left to do. We can take comfort in this simple fact. This is just like what Melissa says to us at the end of our yoga practice and I love the feeling of being done and resting.

Our week is complete and now we get to take comfort and rest and enjoy the week-end. Best night ever.

I wish the same to you.


Hiding Place

Doesn’t this look like the perfect hiding place?  My kitty was sitting in my work chair, in the sunshine, covering her face in my jacket.  Do you remember when you were a kid and if your eyes were covered and you couldn’t see anything, you thought no one could see you either?  I loved playing hide and seek with the kids when they thought like this. It always made me smile.

We all need a hiding place to get away and to not be seen for awhile. There is a thrill in the hiding, and seeking a truly secretive place. There’s an excitement that comes moments before and when you are found too. I love this type of thrill.

When you’re hiding, it feels like you’re being sneaky. There must be a thrill in that too. And sometimes we hide away to just be alone and undisturbed. 

Where do you go to hide away?

I love to retreat to my bedroom and to shut the door. Sometimes I hide in the garage because it’s really quiet and warm and no one comes looking for me there. And sometimes I take a little longer in the rest room, because it’s a fair excuse to be hiding away all alone while you’re “busy.”

Enjoy the quiet moments of your day, hiding away from sight once in awhile and breathe.


Good for Rest

My cats inspire me to rest, yet I’m still not good at it yet.

I had some free time and decided to rest today and to take a nap. My cats  decided to keep me company and to pay lots of attention to me. I enjoyed their company but never did manage to get to sleep. Maybe someday,  but for now I’ll just enjoy their purring and warmth and togetherness.

How do you rest and how often do you give yourself time to do so? 

Life is good.


Cat Naps

These two inspired me today. 

I enjoyed seeing them snuggled together, resting and just doing nothing in the middle of the day.

I decided to do the same. I finished doing my chores and then just laid on the couch, relaxing and opening my eyes when someone walked in the room and then stretching a bit and closing my eyes again.

It’s been a very busy week and it felt good to slow down for a bit today. 

Cat naps are good for the soul.

Did you rest today?

The Night Walk

Tonight I escaped the dinner dishes and went for a night walk all by myself.  It’s good to have time alone and I sure enjoyed the warm evening.

I also loved seeing the sky colors change as the sun set.  

I don’t do this very often but I think I should begin this nightly routine. It’s a good way to end the day. I also liked watching my fit bit tally up the steps from block to block.  And the best part was that when I came home, the kitchen was clean!! Oh I love my family. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.  

Night light.

Good night.   Sleep well. Rest.
