Day 323-Free Days-How I Spend “Me” Time

Do you ever have some free time on your hands and feel like a kid in a candy store? Not knowing what to do first? Did I want to do housework, maybe it was necessary but no. Ok. I did one thing, I folded a load of clothes. I would much rather spend some time in the pool, or shopping or take myself to the movies. And why is it that every time I have free time, my friends don’t?? Anyway, my men went golfing for a few hours and I had some me time to do anything I wanted. None of my friends were available, so this is what I did.

ran an errand

spent an hour in the pool

went out and bought a beautiful Bougainville and two succulents

took a bath a washed my hair

watched an episode of Orange is the New Black on Netflix

I think it was time well spent, don’t you?

My new peach colored Bougainville

My new succulents

The aloe will stay in a pot and maybe the other one too, in case I have to pull them out during high winds and cold weather. You don’t know how bad I wanted one of every cactus there was!! Not to mention, bananas, and other tropicals I just can’t afford right now. One by one, I will create the beautiful gardens I want. I will have lots of plants around the pool someday and a zeroscape in the front yard if it takes half my paycheck several times over.

Thats it for today, and I hope you will join me tomorrow as I welcome another Monday on the patio!

    Any day where I can just read and relax is a “Me Time” day for me. Lovely flowers, Kim.

    Sounds like you did really well with the “me time” Kim. All of us need to take some of that time and unwind.

  3. I have so much me time now Kim that I no longer feel it’s a luxury to do what I want, which is a blessing that I need to remember to appreciate if that makes sense. 🌹
