A WHOLE DAY OF NOTHING

I am so content.  Content is such a happy word, don't you think?


It's partly from the perfect weather here in Maui, perhaps a bit more enjoyable when the really bad weather hits the mainland.  It's mostly from the sunshine every single day.  Love getting my Vitamin D this way.

Today I'm doing nothing.  I met some friends for breakfast, after they finished church.  (I worship at St. Mattress of the Springs).  Nancy is a friend from the next neighborhood and her two cousins spend the winter with her.  

Now I'm home.  Working on computer things for the condo community and my local Village.  Having my second cup of coffee at 2:00 pm and I just turned on Netflix for some company (at least in words).

The best part of all?  I do not feel guilty.  It's taken a few years to get that midwest work ethic way into the back of my mind.  We all spend our early years rushing around in the morning trying to get husbands to work, kids to school and then ourselves to the office.  Then we gather everyone up, get them to lessons or business dinners.  Dinner, homework, extra curricular activities, baths and a glass of wine and to bed.  Repeat.

And now I don't.  So I don't!  I felt a little better after reading this ....

  2. I'm at the same place right now. I've never been this content. I'm so glad you're feeling this way, too.

    1. Alignment of the moon and planets? Or just our place in time? Who cares! I'm loving it.

  3. I love your place of worship--I must remember that and probably will steal it for future reference. Content is what it's all about. It comes when you really quit worrying about what other people think of you and the way you spend your time. I shall sleep in until 9-10 and phooey on people who tsk tsk at me for that.
