I find myself sometimes making excuses for my answer when someone asks “what are you doing tonight?” …

I like being home.  I look forward to very basic things.  I get pleasure from a quiet house, making myself a meal, writing in my blog, reading your blogs, going for a walk on the beach, cracking open a new book and cuddling with the cat.

No more excuses for why I haven’t made plans.  These simple pleasures are the things that make me happy.  I know these things do not sound exciting, or even fun, but I cherish my moments alone.  There is something about a calm quiet life that appeals to me.

My proud answer today:

Yes, I do have plans tonight.

With me.  =)

    That’s awesome! I think I need to take one night that is JUST about me. No phone, no distractions. Good for you!

    My family badgers me sometimes about my homebody ways, but I’m not changing anytime soon.

    I love staying at home. I’d prefer that to wild nights 8 times of 10! 🙂
    I have no excuse. Just a dog to play with and some warm tea–TV free!

    “Together time” for us usually consists of watching TV, either series we’ve recorded or a movie. Nothing fancy, no expensive restaurants, just some time to share, laugh and love.

    People at work are betting that if I manage to retire she’ll be tired of having me on the same hours she’s on within 3 months.

    After 32 years I’d like to think not, but hope to find out!

    Thank you for your kind words when you visit! They mean so very much!

    I agree. If we like spending time with you, why shouldn’t you?
