A Perfect Evening's Musings
Mrs. Roy spent this evening on the back porch reading. Yes, dear friends, it is January 24 and Mrs. Roy sat on the back porch all evening. In fact, the bedroom window is open as Mrs. Roy types this post. There is definitely something good about living in south Georgia!
As Mrs. Roy said, I have been enjoying coffee along with a good book this evening - decaf, of course, since Mr and Mrs. Roy aren't as young as they used to be and caffeine is no longer our friend. sigh Oh well. There is still something so relaxing and fulfilling about a cup of coffee and the peace and quiet and a good story. Mrs. Roy enjoys that much more than the surround sound big screen experience Mr. Roy loves so much.
Mrs. Roy also mused about the fact that Mrs. Roy is reading a .99 cent book from the book warehouse and Mrs. Roy's mom is reading a 9.99 digital book on her Kindle. Mom loves her Kindle but Mrs. Roy doesn't really feel a need to join in on that just yet.
Mrs. Roy did get a little tickled this evening as Mrs. Roy's mother got dressed to go out for the evening while Mrs. Roy put on her pj's and grabbed the coffee and book aforementioned. Mom is busy all the time, running here and there and doing this and that. Mrs. Roy just wants to come home from work and rest. It didn't used to be that way; seems there was always something to do a few years ago. But it is nice to come home and relax and slow down; Mrs. Roy enjoys not having something to do every minute. Just watching Mom go is entertainment enough. ha
All these musings have led to thoughts of contentment and yes, Mrs. Roy is content. It is a blessing to be able to find contentment in our home and simple pleasures. Thank you, Lord. Life is good.
