For most of the 14 years we’ve had our house in Maine, I’ve come up for a few days by myself in winter. A few days are enough as it is cold and night comes early.
I love when it snows turning Rockport into a charming winter wonderland.
This year, thanks to warmer temperatures, snow isn’t lasting long. It melts or is washed away by rain. What is revealed are the browns of grass and leafless shrubs that wait patiently for spring.
No matter the weather, what I like about being here alone is the uninterrupted time spent thinking my own thoughts, reading in a favorite chair or binging on Netflix. There may even be a day or two when I don’t bother to get out of my pajamas!
It is a time to enjoy a girls’ night filled with giggles and stories that make us feel like teenagers. And, yes, sometimes we really do gather in our PJs.
Maine is my place to be still, to breathe deeply and laugh a lot. My hope is for all of us to have that kind of special place no matter where or what the season.
i so appreciate your visit and especially the comments you leave behind
