I am having one of the best mornings I have had in a really long time. I am house sitting/dog sitting for a friend of mine while she and her family are off at a chicken show. Its been so incredibly long since I have slept in a house. I knew I missed it, but…well, this just feels right in a way I can’t seem to adequately wrap words around.
There is just something about lazily half-waking, getting up to go potty then, crawling back into bed to see if you are really ready to get up. Sure, this is no different than when I am at home, other than the heat works way better when the dwelling you are in is properly insulated. Anyway, after laying down for a bit longer while I decided if I was ready for the day, the idea of being able to get up and walk across the hall for a shower (one that I don’t have to turn the water on and off so there is enough hot water for the whole shower) pushed me from the bed. What a luxury to be able to do that.
I brought my espresso machine with me. Yes, this is a self-spoiling item I possess that is small enough to take with me and do so whenever I can. After making my coffee, the dogs and I headed outside for a little bit. Its super cold, again, this morning (38 degrees), so I didn’t spend much time out there. Now, I am INSIDE writing. Isn’t that a treat!? I’m inside, in my jammies with barefeet, drinking my coffee that isn’t quickly becoming cold. I could get used to this. Good thing I’m heading home on Sunday.
I really have no huge responsibilities while I’m here and my mind is thinking of all the different things I could go do, by myself, without having to worry about all the details of home. I can’t remember the last time I was able to do that. Of course, this means my mind is flooding with too many things and places I could go. It would take me a week to do them all and I would be exhausted by the end of it. I keep coming back to the idea of just staying here and enjoying my time in a real person’s dwelling, which is probably exactly what I will do, for the most part. There are a few things I would like to do, but, mostly, I am looking forward to having this time to myself without pressing demands.
Well, I had better go feed the chickens that didn’t go to the show. Have a great day, Everyone!!
