alone time

   I enjoyed a "red velvet" ice cream cone the other day alone.  
Oh, it was heavenly.  I must admit I felt a tad bit of guilt. 
I bought some new sunscreen at the pharmacy too.
I did all of it alone.
Nobody told me to hurry up.
Nobody.
Followed by a bike ride was the perfect alone time for me.  
Do you allow yourself to take time alone?
Nothing like a little alone time to be ready to take on the world.

It is absolutely imperative that I get alone time and theres nothing more satisfying that scoffing an ice cream occasionally when nobody is around to see.

As the rather camp 1980s cream cake TV adverts in the UK featuring Babara Windsor would say "Naughty, but nice!" :)

Sometimes I feel guilty about needing and claiming alone time but I need the "people" break from time to time. Particularly with the amount of electronic stimulation we all experience daily, taking a little time for one's self can provide renewed energies.

I plan alone time every day ... and I never feel guilty. :)

You're making me feel so guilty. I have times like this whenever possible. I'm an introvert, and I HAVE to have alone time or I get really exhausted and cranky.

Love it! It's funny whenever I do something in a way of treat like ice cream or something fun...my family is always like what no fair! As of lately my big treat is a nap! Red velvet cupcakes are my favorite....I must find ice cream that flavor! Happy Thursday!

I do enjoy my alone time. It gives me the extra boost to tackle things or be refresh to tackle things for others. Did the ice cream have pieces of red velvet cake and frosting in it? It is a favorite of mine too. I should try and make this flavor ice cream. Enjoy and make it a golden one. xo

I enjoy alone time, however it most often occurs during the day when I am working... so I am not sure if that really counts.
