We turned our clocks back last night. Yay! I look forward to the day as yet another marker of my happy season. Today I am having a purposely peaceful day to celebrate. After sleeping in this morning, I had a simple breakfast--peanut butter and jelly sandwich--and brought my coffee back into the bedroom. I arranged my pillows, climbed back into bed, and enjoyed my coffee while finishing the Miss Silver mystery I'd started last night. Then I got my second cup of coffee, kept nice and hot by my insulated stainless steel Joe Mo mug and scrolled through some e-magazines from the library.
I plan to meander quietly through the rest of this beautiful day. I've just finished a cup of cocoa. I have a knitting project next to me on one side and a pile of books on the other. It is a bank holiday weekend here and this Sunday may be even more quiet than usual. One of the things I love about living in a small rural village is the slow pace of life. It suits me. It is how I want to live. It makes me feel content and at peace--even more so now in the middle of autumn and with the days getting shorter. I am grateful to be able to live this way in this place.
May your day be full of peace and contentment too.
