Share the Joy: TIme to Myself

It’s another week of simple joy.
I get a week all to myself.
The 20 somethings are off to Mexico. . . .

A week where I'm able
to be able to hear myself think, even at 2 am on Saturday morning.

Time to play with my camera.


No cooking for anyone.
Only myself to clean up after.
Time to clean up my Ipod
and get rid of some of the stuff that arrived
when my cousin offered to sync our Ipods
and I discovered we don't share the same taste in music.

What sparked your JOY this week?

To play along,
1. do a post that tells and shows us what gives you joy.
2. Capture the URL of the specific post and paste it
into the Mr. Linky box along with your name.
3. Then click the NEXT box (or the link)
to choose an image from the post to hook to Mr. Linky's list
so that people are enticed to visit your blog.
If you just can't get it to work, send me the info
and I'll try to link it for you.
4. Visit other players -- as many as possible --
and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment, because everyone enJOYS
getting positive feedback.
Let's start an epidemic of joy!

Meri I am so glad when Thursday comes and we get to visit. Sometimes I feel how cynical one can get. Thank goodness I can bounce back. Blessings to your in a time of recharging.

Sounds like you treasure your quiet time with your toys, and whatever else you chose....we all need 'me' time....
I am always unable to successfully add my thumbnail to this blog...Is it because I have a Mac? Or am I just dense?!

Hi Meri, great post, what a treat to have time for yourself....can hardly imagine a family gone for so long. Envy!!! Actually just very happy for you.
I had a post ready but couldn't get it to work with your widget. Sorry. I tried for quite awhile. Not sure what is the problem. But know that I tried...smiles: sharon

I just got back from a family reunion and now I need a vacation. So much chatter in my ears makes me a cranky girl. Lucky you having a whole week.
