I've been feeling the need to chill. Anyone looking at my schedule this past month would laugh. "No kidding" they would say. A move to a new apartment, two trips to Kansas City, and a trip to Petoskey. Yeah, the need is dire. Ever feel like you start missing things when you don't have a proper stretch of down time? I become fractious, like a little child who's missed her nap. This coming weekend I have two whole days free--free of obligations, responsibilities and trips! I can't tell you how good it feels. I was wandering through Body and Soul and discovered this section on how to boost one's happiness. It had great suggestions, one of them being to make sure you have a spot you are able to retreat to in your home. I don't have a lot of space right now, so I'm making due and trying to create an inviting space in my bedroom. I picked up a beautiful throw and de-cluttered my bedroom floor. I've re-arranged it so it "feels" better when you walk in. I'm so excited, I'm going to make a pot of tea this weekend, loaded with whipped honey from Petoskey, gather up all my pillows and camp out for an hour or two in my bedroom reading my new book(s)!
