Understanding An Introvert


I’m a Home-Body and a Book Worm.  I prefer quiet evenings at home as opposed to those spent out.  I do much better with one on one interaction than in a crowded room.

I can put on the perfect smile and don my best dress and I will be that perfect lady on your arm.  I’ll be charming, witty and entertaining.  I can host a family feast during the holidays or attend that lavish event you’ve been looking forward to all year.

The Cottage


The living room is smallish with a large over stuffed couch dominating the room.  The couch faces a large picture window where I can gaze upon the beauty outside.  There is a window seat on that picture window, wide and deep, perfect for an afternoon of reading or contemplation.

The view from this window is of a wooded place.  There are numerous trees of different varieties.  The sunlight dapples the earth as it shines down through the trees.  In the distance, just barely in view, is a small lake.  I can see a small square of blue from here.

Time in the Country


I love a small town.  Quiet mornings and the slower pace.

Thursday I headed South to my brother’s place.  My brother and sister-in-law live in a tiny town of 820 people.  It’s very quiet.

The drive south was lovely.  Traveling in the mid morning on a Thursday, did not present much traffic.  As I left the city behind me, the scenery around me showed me it’s celebration of Spring.

The Bluebonnets are in bloom here in Texas.  I was also treated to an array of different colors of Morning Glory and Indian Paint Brush.

The fat black cows in contrast to the bright green of the fields around them had their own beauty.

The day before me was glorious, as if God was showing off after winter.

There isn’t much to tell you about the 2 days I spent at my brother’s place.  Mostly what we did was sit around and visit, get caught up and watch the slow pace of the world outside go by.

I spent some time in the swing in the backyard, watching Little Dog explore the Great Outdoors of the big back yard.  I sat and marveled at the quiet and the spring smells of the breeze.

I love my home and my life in the city, but the peace of the country has a way of recharging me.  I love Spring!
