My ideal day begins on mid-winter morning. From my comfy chair with ottoman (which I don’t have), I watch a peaceful, windless snow fall (which rarely occurs where I live). My cats and dogs are warm and happy near the fireplace (which I don’t have) or sleeping on my lap.
On the little table beside me, I have a cup of hot, black coffee, a homemade cinnamon roll slathered with icing and dripping with melted butter, and a favorite book to re-read. My cell phone is silenced. Soft music plays in the background.
By late morning, I’m sleepy, and I nap on the couch under a cozy fleece blanket for an hour. Lunch is homemade tomato basil soup with crackers, another cinnamon roll, and more coffee, while I continue reading. Just before dusk, I take the dogs for a walk in the still gently falling snow.
Evening arrives and my supper is a nice cheesy pizza with hamburger and pineapple toppings and a bottle of Corona beer. A good long soak in the tub follows, then back to the comfy chair with my book and a glass (or two) of Malbec.
The day ends with one last look at the falling snow before going to bed. The dogs and cats snuggle in with me, and I turn on a movie to fall asleep to.
Until next time,
writing through history one romance upon a time

You’re my kind of girl. Doesn’t leave the house. Or check her phone. Cozy at home, reading, snuggled up, and goes for the 2nd cinnamon roll 😛
HAHAHA The days I go no farther than my mailbox and walk my dogs are also my favorite kinds of day. On the 2nd cinnamon roll… I’m not above going for 3rds (and more). haha
