My Backyard

Me:   I really want to travel!

My Credit Card:   Like.... to the backyard??

I saw this and found it humorous

because lately it seems I spend most of my time

at home.  In my yard.

And really I'm OK with that!

Travel with Sadie is difficult, at best.

As I grow older, I find that my circle of travel

is smaller.  I don't see the need to be on the go

all the time.  When I was younger, had children,

it seemed I was going somewhere.

Every single day!

So having the freedom to choose to stay home

can be a joyous thing! 

What's in your backyard?


  1. I think when we get older we spend more time reflecting. Saw a great quote that I think encapsulates it best.

    “Does your home make you happy? This place, this sanctuary, that we call home should be a place that makes us feel joyful, safe, and at peace. Let your home be a place of beauty. Let it be that your home never makes you feel trapped, stressed, or drained. Having a place of sanctuary is very important for the mental well-being. No matter what happens in the outside world there needs to always be a place for you to balance out and recharge. Let your home be a sanctuary that gives you peace.”

    1. Owning a home can make a person feel stressed, at times! But that's because there's much that needs taken care of. At the same time, I'm so thankful for all my Dad taught me about being a handy-woman. I even have my own tools! And know how to use them! So yes, my home is my sanctuary! Thanks for dropping a note! *hug*
