No, this is certainly not a picture or blog about Christmas, this is about MY DREAM to spend a whole month of solitude in a beautiful natural setting.  I would have plenty of food and shelter………but I would not see another person…?

Just think about it, a beautiful cabin, nestled within snow covered trees, with light puffs of smoke coming out of the chimney.  Inside, a warm inviting fire would be burning and the smell of a succulent roast would permeate the air. Surrounded by a lovely rustic decorated room with lots and lots of white linens on a big, cozy bed,  a huge fluffy sofa covered in big throw pillows and I am “laying” on the couch with my laptop, wearing thick long john pajamas,  socks and slippers!!  I’d be sipping a wine in a hot tub and listening to my favorite music without any interruptions!


A phone ringing non-stop from 8 to 5.

Text messages blaring on my mobile.

All those bills to pay.

A car that needs gas all the time.        

Mr. Nailgun.

Rude and obnoxious drivers on the highway.

Things left everywhere because it was too much effort to put it away.

Clean dishes in the dishwasher (that no one wants to empty)

A loud TV forecasting more doom and gloom.

One month without all of these things…….Yeah!  When can I start packing?  Alas Amanda……..wakey wakey….it’s only in your dreams!!!!!!!!!

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
