homey day


a lazy Saturday indoors
a drizzly misty rain outdoors

lingering long after breakfast
reading snippets from the weekend paper
to each other

a little tidying and watering plants
a soothing massage on sore legs and aching knee
a sweet nap in cool bedroom under warm duvet

awakened by a lovely voice and piano
daughter and friend practicing for upcoming Winter Party

aroma of roasting chicken and root vegetables
a video of an apple, baking

"A sweet nap in cool bedroom under warm duvet" this must be what we call domestic bliss.

What a wonderful, wonderful day. Thank you so much for giving it to us! The baked apple film is superb too. I was trying to work out where the kitchen might be, with its dual language cooker settings and a jar of marmite on the shelf.

"Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples."

A way of giving vegetarianism a more popular appeal, I always thought. And of course there's much more - some of it rather raunchy - in the Song of Solomon.

Sounds wonderful!!

Lilalia - you could call it that! I'm glad it did not sound too boring.

Lady P - Pleased that you enjoyed it. I too wondered where this was filmed, not UK, then?

Barrett - very interesting that this has you thinking of Song of Solomon, and vegetarianism...

Joan - thanks!
