Out of the House

Somedays you just need to get out of the house, smell the fresh air and change the atmosphere around you. 

If all the rain that's been coming down these past week and the change from warm day back to cold I've been wanting to be in the comforts of my own home. I didn't realize it until recently, but I've become such a home body. If you told me that I'd prefer to stay home over getting out of the house a few years back I would have told you that your crazy, but now I really do just want to be home. Staying home has it's advantages and disadvantages. I won't list them all, but cabin fever does settle in. That's why I was so thankful for our regular Thursday playdates as they give us a nice push to get out the house and smell the roses. 

When your inside is gray and dull indoor, once outdoor it really isn't that gray and dreary. I just wish that this lesson would stick because tomorrow I just might want to stay in the comforts of my home again. Luckily summer days are just around the corner and I have high hopes for a hot one this year and if it's not then I am thankful that I have traveling plans every month until October to warm destinations!

  1. I know exactly what you mean about not imaging ever being a home body a few years ago and then... Voila! you are one! I'm experiencing a similar personal phenomenon. I've had such wanderlust my entire life and now... well, I don't. :-)

  2. It's only 7:30pm and I'm already in my pajamas, drinking hot tea and checking in on my favorite blogs. I guess I'm a homebody too when the PNW weather is dreary.

  3. I'd love to see your painting when you finish it! The flowers are amazing!
