As promised, I'm back today with two pictures of Dale from our Maine vacation. First…
One week ago today was my birthday and I spent the day on my own at the campground. We had set up the camper the night before and left it at the campground so it was all ready for me to just relax and hang out once I got there. Dale came after work and we had the evening together and then he got up early Friday morning and went to work for the day. Once he got back on Frday after work he was there for the weekend.
In other words, I had all day Thursday and all day Friday to do as I pleased at the camper.
It was wonderful.
I love time to myself during the day. In the evening, for reasons I can’t explain, I tend to get lonely but during the day I’m all about alone time. I spent both days reading and relaxing, watching some TV, knitting, and journaling and thinking. I had pre-planned my meals so that I could cook for myself and not have to think about going out at all.
On Friday I started the campfire mid-afternoon and read by the fire. It was just chilly enough for it to feel great and I was pretty proud of my accomplishment . . . made easier because Dale had left a good supply of kindling and paper, of course. I didn’t see any other people during the day as our site was pretty secluded and I truly loved it.
Here’s to knowing ourselves and embracing the ways we recharge!
