A perfect day in a perfect world
I always wake up fresh and happy
This morning I woke up to the sound of chirping birds outside my window. For a short while, I allowed myself to lay there and enjoy the fact that I was happy now. The miracle of being alive is a fantastic gift. With a heart beating even when you sleep and the breathing going on even if you do not think about it. Life is a great thing.
The bed next to me was empty because my husband is an early riser. He was probably out on the patio doing some reading. I got out of bed, and into the kitchen where the smell of coffee was fantastic. So I grabbed the largest cup I could find and filled it. Then I went out on the veranda and sat down in a comfortable chair.
My white kitten jumped up for a first purr, and I blow on his whiskers like I always do. I had coffee breath and a furry friend. That is what I call a good start of a fine day!
I write in a diary every day.
One of my habits is to write in a diary every day. I do not write for somebody else to read. Just really to fasten my own thoughts and clean my mind. Many years ago, that helped me when I was very sad or in mourning, but these days it is only about happy things that happen to me.
Today I am writing a schedule for the things I want to do. First, I will go down to the lake and take a long swim. There is a small island not far out so often I swim to that place and rest before I swim back again. My husband is always with me on this wet joy.
Since he did not sit on the patio, he must be somewhere else. I continue to write more about my coming activities. Lately, I have learned to use a potter's wheel. I turn the clay into flower pots, kitchen mugs or vases. I love that work. Slowly, I am getting better, but still not perfect. The items are crooked and let´s say very personal!
I have to pick apples, pears, strawberries and potatoes today. We eat a lot of home-grown food. This day I will make a pie with cheese and potatoes. Mixed with leek it is so good. Later in the afternoon, our neighbors will come over for a music sing along. Often we meet and just play instruments and sing. I am playing a snare drum, and my husband is really skilled on his accordion. We have built a huge room for music and musicians. All the instruments we can play and a couple more are there waiting for our music events. Some do not yet play instruments, but they really can sing and they do.
Here we live
Here is our home. The surfing waves are fantastic and the air is so clear. Fuerteventuras beaches are fantastic.
Finally, I can hear my husband coming towards our house. He is carrying something quite heavy, and he is whistling while walking. What had he brought home now? When he gets closer I see it. He has got a wind surf board for me! My goodness, this is my dream since years back. I am going to learn how to use the wind and the waves. I have already lost a lot of overweight but now the rest will go too hehehe.
We kiss and hug and kiss again. I am so happy to see him healthy and tanned. We are going down to the beach now and try to surf. He suggests that we take something to drink and nibble on. We are also packing fruit and water and Towles. Off we go - see you guys later!
You have heard a bit of a FOR ME a perfect day in a perfect world!
