Entertaining Myself

IMG_8521

Late yesterday afternoon,

during that time of day in daylight savings time

I like to call that ‘in between time’,

and

after a hard fought Saturday working in the yard,

I plopped myself down and looked at some of my favorite things.

(Insert soundtrack of my life here.)

With my IPod playing,

and a cold drink in hand,

I did what I have done contentedly

ALL MY LIFE.

I entertained myself.

As it ‘got dark’, here is what I saw and thought.

Me:  ‘I love this olive tree so much.  It is old but still likes to look good when dolled up. That makes me smile.
I can relate.’

Me:  ‘Creating bokeh in photos is so much fun.  It makes things look great.

I wonder if my husband would walk behind me with little white lights so I can be framed in bokeh?’

Me: ‘OK. Time to get up.

It’s time to dance, especially in front of the den window

where my husband is watching basketball . That makes me laugh thinking about it,

which is one of my favorite ways to

ENTERTAIN MYSELF.’

Hi honey so glad I came by tonight and read this delightful post.
I can't think of a better way to end the day after working in the yard.
My favorite part was picturing you entertaining your hubby while he was watching a game. hahaha
Too cute
Love
Maggie

I'm married to a sports lover, so it's a good thing I can entertain myself whenever I need to. Never tried dancing in front of the window though. Hmmm ... love the notion.

Well inquiring minds want to know.... what was the beverage and did you dance for him or not?

You're a kindred spirit - I, too, am great at entertaining myself and I look fabulous in bokeh(?) and even better in total darkness!
Thanks for stopping by my Blog today!

You have an olive tree? Wow!! I love it. I love your twinkle lights. One of my favorite things is to light the lights on our deck and sit out there in the dark. It is just the most magical feeling and just the right music makes it even better.
