Nowhere to go, nowhere to be...

Today,  for the first time in ages, I have nowhere to go, and nowhere to be...

Once the children are dropped off at their respective schools and kindy, I have no appointments. No groceries to shop for. No familial responsibilities today.

Nothing pressing on  my things to do list.

No phone calls to make, no issues to deal with.

The ironing is kind of up to date enough to ignore the basket, as is the overall state and cleanliness of this house.

How delicious.

How rare.

So I shall revel in just being, today. At home, by myself, in a peaceful house. I shall luxuriate in the total absence of business and sink into some relaxation.

Just me.

I might sit on the deck and gaze at the horizon in the sun.

I might go for a run.

I might write.

I might take some snaps.

I might bake - something yummy, for the kids to come home to? Maybe not.

I might have a nap.

I might read. (Actually, yes, I will definitely read.)

I might Tweet.

I will enjoy every second...........

If you ever find yourself in this blissful position,
how do you while away the hours? Tell me?

    When I'm in that position I love to read, while having a sip of some sort of alcoholic drink, sometimes if I'm not in the mood for reading I'll try catch up some tv shows I've recorded on the set top personal recorder box.

    The one thing I love to do the most is try to catch a few more extra zzzzzzzzz's as I know I won't be disturbed.

    (((( Hugs ))))

  2. I love it when there are days like that! Sharon

  3. Oh I so forget what these days are like. I am so jealous. If I had one right now I would spend it reading, tweeting & sleeping, as well as a nice long sit in the sun doing one of those activities. But, today I am with MIL, which whilst stressful, does give me a day of tweeting without the guilt.

  4. Oh, enjoy your day. How about reading on the deck? I'd go for a nap too.

  5. Sounds perfect. I have one of those days booked in about 3 weeks time. I am so excited about! Enjoy yours and do whatever it is you like. x

  6. Oh Lucy, a day like that sounds delicious! Enjoy. Every. Second.

    A very rare blissful day indeed. Hope you made the most of it :)

    PS the most bizarre thing I've ever done to stay cool was during a roadtrip from Sydney to Melbourne, we didn't have air conditioning in the car (yuck!) so we stopped regularly at petrol stations so I could wet a towel with cold water from the toilets and that wet towel was literally on my burning hot head (I also have thick, black hair which causes my head / face to get really hot) until it dried completely and it was time to wet it all over again at the next petrol station!

    On the rare occasions that I do have a day like that, I make sure I have a bubble bath and read in absolute silence. Blissful!

    Take a walk amongst the red fall leaves...do a colored charcoal sketch ...eat lot of chocolate cookies
    have fun you've earned the break!

  12. Sounds wonderful. :) What did you end up doing?

  13. I can't remember the last time I had a day like this. Seriously. Need to rectify that.

    Thanks for Rewinding at the Fibro.
