Once upon a time, when I had a day job, I used to experience cabin fever any day I HAD to stay home. It was like permanent itching powder on the back of my neck. Get out, do something, Go ANYWHERE.
I don't feel that way any more. Nowadays, any day I DON'T have to go out and be somewhere doing something is just fine. In fact, it's paradise!
Yesterday was cold and snowy. The flakes were so big they were clumps. I sat in my little comfy chair and read a book for about four hours by the glow of the Christmas tree. Sometimes my cat would come and sit with me for a while. Just to make sure I knew he loved me, he'd settle on the back of the chair and purr.
Can life get much better than that?
It got worse.
Just as the sky was transitioning from afternoon to evening mode, I had to put on my hat, big coat, and gloves and venture out into the 10 degree almost night. By the time I finished my errands, it was even colder, although at least the snowflakes were a more reasonable size. I am NOT going out today, and if I'm lucky, I won't have to go anywhere until at least a couple of days. Can you say "settle back in a comfy chair and read, Read, READ?" (Or maybe watch a DVD or two?)
