I’m not a very active person, so it’s really not difficult for me to envision my perfect day of bliss. First, I’d need absolutely no alarm or need to get up. No tasks that have to be done, no emails that need replies. Just allowing my body to naturally wake. Though, that’s a little harder these days now that I adopted a cat. Parker wants me up to feed her.
But once I’m up and she’s fed, there is one thing that is completely not an option to be without.
Tea is my one true love. Tea has never let me down. Tea is my best friend. There is absolutely no way this day would occur without tea. Copious amounts, in fact. Next would be breakfast of some sort, possibly French toast or pancakes with bacon. Then we’d move along to the main event: reading.
I barely get to do this these days with long work hours, and I miss it terribly. It’s probably a big reason why I can’t write much (beyond depression/PTSD, that is). I’m not filling the creative well. So, on this auspicious day of bodily slovenliness, I would light a lovely scented candle and curl up on the sofa with tea, el gato, a blanket, and read to my heart’s content.
I would probably watch some Netflix in there as well, let’s be real here. Meals would be cooked for me and delivered by an attractive person on a white horse (Chris Hemsworth, preferably, but I wouldn’t turn away Tom Holland or Cate Blanchett), or just the pizza delivery guy. Yeah, probably just the pizza guy.
To end the day—because we are musing on a perfect day, not necessarily a possible day—I would want to watch the sunset on the beach. Now, what makes this impossible for me is that I’m 5 hours inland from the Gulf of Mexico. One can hardly do the things above and drive to the coast all in one day. But a girl can dream, can’t she?
Perhaps one day, I’ll plan a trip to the coast and spend my lazy day there. Once back inside, I’d have a little… ahem… alone time (cos #foreveralone) then fall blissfully asleep. The end.
