ivory tower

Love to have a little priviledged spot like this to find a moment of peace in my day. The end of Summer and the start of Autumn always feels like one is shifting gears into a higher speed. How nice would it be to just lock a few minutes of the day for a private time to pamper and ponder. How do you find time in your day for a little "me" time?

I can find it at times like this....the boys are fed, I'm at my desk and I can see them playing outside my window. We're in a neighborhood with sooooo many little boys. It's like an eternal playdate for them! And quiet for me! :)

I sit under a sign named Saunders!

My early morning hours are my quietest - the boys are still in bed and the dogs have been let out. Coffee on the swing in the garden is a great way to start the day!

I'm normally up by 5AM to start my day, and then again around 11PM until I fall asleep. Since, I don't have small children I have plenty of time to pamper and ponder. It's just a matter of stopping to do it.

I need to be better about that but even a few minutes on our screened porch feels like a mini vacation. Something about the fresh air and trees.

Me time is when I am blogging or writing.
I catch it when I can, early morning or late at night.
Love the ivory tower.

I try to start the day with my coffee in the sunroom or on the front porch for my "me" time. Carla

I love little seating spots like this...

My favorite time of the day is when I can sneak up to our bedroom where I have a quiet little nook with a comfy chair just for me to read, jot a quiet note to a friend or peruse a new magazine.

i typically can carve out a little bit for myself... the afternoons are nice right now. however this week- not a second alone. i'm exhausted!!! i want to slouch in the chair in this picture with a big cozy blanket!!

"Me time" is when I blog (like so many of the rest of us!) and when I do yoga. Sometimes I take a detour on my way home to stop at an antique store or fabric shop, just to look at all the pretty things; that's me time, too!

What a beautiful and poetic post. I'm looking forward to a little me time once school starts on the 7th.
