Thoughtful Thursday… daydreaming


I have to say, some of the things that whizz through my mind while I am walking the pup, sometimes take me by surprise. It varies from the mundane “what am I going to cook tonight?” to the curious “I wonder how deep that puddle is. Will it reach the top of my wellies?”.

Today’s thought was along these lines –

“If I didn’t work, how would I fill my days?”

Surprise, surprise! I made a list once I got home and removed all the mud from the pup. Here are just a few of my ideas in no particular order.

  • Gardening
  • Writing
  • Cookery
  • Dog agility classes (might channel pup’s excess energies)
  • Running
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Cycling
  • Photography (this one came out of nowhere!)
  • Travel
  • Knitting and sewing

My ideal day would start with a few affirmations and a yoga session, before tucking into breakfast on the patio with hubby. Obviously, in my head, the weather is being kind for a change.

Then I’d spend the morning gardening, working up an appetite for lunch on the sun-deck (weather is still glorious). While lunch settles, I’d sit in my she-shed (I don’t have one in real life, but a girl can dream) and write blog posts and my book. Once the temperature  cooled enough, and lunch digested, I’d head off for a cycle ride or a run. Either of them would give me the opportunity to observe other gardens and their plants.

Once home again, following a stretch session and a shower, I’d join hubby on the deck for a civilised gin and tonic followed by cooking up something delicious and healthy.

At sunset we would head out to the hot tub to soak away the day’s exertions and chat before heading to bed.

I wonder how soon I can retire? I would love one of those days right now.

For all you lovely working readers, what would your ideal day look like? And for those of you already out of the rat race, how do you fill your days?

Wishing you all a fun-filled Thursday.
