After two whirlwind days of errands and things to check off my "to do list", I'm home alone today without an agenda. That doesn't happen very often.
Some people don't like to be alone. I wouldn't say that I'd enjoy being alone all the time, but I think we all need periods of time when we can just relax and do whatever we want. The presence of another person changes things because we are by nature social animals. If someone is in the house I'm going to talk to them or ask them what they want to do. And if my guys are home I'm not going to watch Hatari for the twentieth time or spend five hours on the computer. LOL
Some people don't like having a day without an agenda. I like to plan and organize, probably more than most people, but once in a while I crave a day to just meander about and do what occurs to me. I might wander in the garden without working or look at some old photos, without sorting and labeling and organizing them. I might spend time just watching the rabbits or the birds. I think we can all get too caught up in the idea of everything having a purpose.
When I think about my childhood that's one of the things I enjoyed the most, especially in the summer. I called it "exploring". I would walk through the fields or the woods just to see what would happen. Sometimes I might actually see or find something interesting. Sometimes I would think about stories or plan my life. Other times I would just walk and suddenly realize I had wandered a long way without a conscious thought.
So today I'm home alone, relaxing and doing whatever...
