Today I had the house all to myself for a precious moment. Or, at least, almost to myself: Daughter was outside taking a nap. It’s fun having the house full of life at all times, but sometimes solitude and silence is luxury to long for.
I’ve sat for a while now listening to the humming of a dishwasher and the ticking of a clock, while catching up on some of my favourite blogs and drinking a big cup of tea. This morning’s tea was Lipton’s Earl Grey in my in-laws’ blue seal cup. And the cinnamon bun was baked rather quickly last night after spending the entire day in the zoo. Rain came upon us during the last hours and called for warm, freshly baked buns as we came home.
My in-laws’ have almost a cupboard full of different cups and mugs gathered from across both time and space. Each one of them reflecting memories related to its purchase. I don’t know their stories so I make up my own. This seal, for instance, has been further north than I’ve ever been. Seen some spectacular mountains and scenic coastal views.
Enjoy your day 🙂
There are occasions when we all need “Anne” time. Hot tea and a warm bun add to the delight!
It’s been way too long since I’ve stopped by, Anne! I always say that I relish my alone time rather than dread it/feel lonely etc. – it’s such a good chance to balance yourself and catch up on little treats :)!
I couldn’t agree more!
Good to see you around again 🙂
