Dreaming of Cozy Days

I would rather be home today instead of starting my day at the office.  Don’t get me wrong, every day is a good day that I can actually feel well enough to get to the office! I am grateful!

But when Gracie does this to me:


Gracie: Don’t you wanna come lay down?


Gracie:  C’mon, stay in bed already, I promise I won’t sit like this too long!

This makes it really hard to leave.

WE ARE NOT having rainy weather. I Wish!   Its gonna be in the 90s by the weekend.   If it were raining, I think it would be even harder to  get up and go to work, cause I love to cozy up in the rain!

However, when I move back to Oregon someday, I plan to listen to every single drop!  I will be retired and yes – I will be able to enjoy it from inside a warm and cozy place, with my cats.


And…take advantage of a good book and a cup of coffee in bed for as long as I want!


I honestly don’t want much.  Just my health, a little income and a pleasant place to live.

Speaking of good books.  I’m reading The Glass Castle right now.  I’ll be done with it today at lunch time.  That’s probably why it was hard to leave home today.  A good book, a fur baby and a comfy bed.  Heaven.

My daughter read it for English class.  When she finished reading it I picked it up and I can’t put it down. 

Wow!  Have you read it?  You can print it out here as a pdf for free.

Where ever you are today, the plan is to try to take it as easy as possible, find something good to read and look forward to something that makes you feel happy! 

Even if it is just a small vase of flowers! 


Do something nice for yourself, because we are worth it!

  1. That would be my perfect day too – curled up in bed with 1 or all of our 4 cats, a book (or 2 or 3) and, in my case, a diet coke with lime 🙂 Doesn’t get much better than that!!! Oh, and definitely raining!!

  2. Gracie is a little trouble maker..good for her 🙂 I love reading…i actually went to the library and picked up 5 books just to read and escape from the world with. I actually live in WA state so when it’s time for you to retire, we can meet and remember these fun times (by then they’ll be a pleasant memory). Have a good day.

    • That is great!!! I will be back there before we know it!!!! We will meet up. It gives me more to look forward to. 🙂 I cannot wait to move back to the woods. Cali has seriously kicked my butt!

  3. Tell me about CA kicking your butt!!! My husband was born and raised in Hollywood and I didn’t think he would EVER leave – imagine my surprise when he said he didn’t think we would be able to retire here and have a decent standard of living. Not to mention he is sick of the “nanny state” – honestly never thought I would hear him say that!!!
