No one is up, and I experience this peaceful solitude, although I sometimes think what if there was an apocalypse? when I don't see customers for the first hour.
Other than that, it starts my day off right. When August approached so suddenly, our warm weather bid us adieu and the rain came tip toeing in. For the past couple of mornings, I've woken to the pitter patter of rain and my room smells refreshed and healthy. And with rain come my favorite rainy traditions.
It's important to feel comfortable in your solitude and to have days like this to yourself. After all, you are yours before you're anyone else's. It's nice to take a day and appreciate the comfort of your own company, tucked away in a cozy place...
"fall in love with your solitude"
(but make sure it includes the company of a cat)
Also, these handmade in Soldotna candles are truly quite delightful. They crackle when they burn and because it's soy, it burns for longer. Plus, they smell nice so win win.
Just a few of my favorite quotes..
