Welcome to our den-our sanctuary!
All day long at work it seems my husband and I rush around to meetings. At one point during the day, though, we’ll talk about our evening plans. The fire we’ll make, the Chinese food picnic we’ll have on the rug, the fur-like blankets we’ll all use to snuggle. When I get off the phone, I am refocused. I know at the end of the day, all the day’s weariness will dissipate in this room.
My favorite Saturday evening is spent here with a fire, a glass of Pinot Grigio, and the New York Times on my lap. Does that make me misanthropic? Maybe! But I’ve learned as I get older to relish slices of solitude. To replenish myself for another weekly round of gymnastics, basketball, making lunches and the wrench thrown in you can’t expect (this week a broken washing machine!), I need time and space to replenish the soul. This room refills me every time!
But then, so does a wonderful Valentine message from a secret admirer! Hmmm I wonder who this could be from?? Enjoy your day!
