Foot on the Brake

A long work day started early and ended late. At home this evening, I slowed everything down. There was so much to do between volunteer jobs and getting myself organized after a long weekend away. But I took my time, accompanied by the sweet sound of Loreena McKennitt in the background, as a spatchcocked organic chicken roasted its heavenly scents through my home.

Life is good. I'm grateful.

Sounds like a nice, relaxing evening at home. I think those are the best kind of evenings : )
I like the term "cocooning". It implies wrapping ourselves in the comforts of home.

I need to slow down next week! Whew...I feel like you, just going full steam and running on empty. I can almost smell that chicken roasting...the perfect thing for a fall dinner!

Thanks for helping me celebrate my birthday today! xo

Cocooning indeed. I need more of it. Maybe full-scale hibernation?
