Today, I’d rather be in my happy place than at work. But I have miles to go before I sleep. Yes, friends, it has been a busy week, extending into a busy weekend with work deadlines to be met. I love it – yet with barely four hours of sleep each night over the last six days, I’ve been secretly wishing I could go to any one of the following places.
I am yearning to:
- Slow down a little
- Breathe a little
- Play a little
- Watch a movie with my son
- Catch up on my reading
- Try a couple of new recipes
- Go shopping
That’s just the tip of my to-do iceberg. And yes, I will get to it in the coming week, after my crazy-busy work schedule eases off on Tuesday (hopefully). Until then, let me fantasize. Please feel welcome to join me in my fantasy! Here, then, are some of . . .
My happy places – where I’d rather be right now!
This gorgeous scene is from our visit to the Golkonda Fort in Hyderabad. The blue sky, ancient monument, the lawns, the history, the sheer serenity of our surroundings took our breath away. After all the walking, it was lovely to stand and stare.
Another view of the Golkonda fort. Couldn’t get enough of this beautiful place I’ve visited so many times. When we lived in Hyderabad, it was customary to take all our guests on a sightseeing tour of the city, and it definitely included this iconic fort. We would carry picnic lunches and have a fabulous time.
The scene below is at the Mysore Zoo. The lake had ducks swimming around with their little ones. It was just so peaceful to look at the ripples in the water with the warm sunshine on our faces.
We also visited the Ranganthittu bird sanctuary near Mysore. A beautiful spot with interesting stone arrangements. The bird sanctuary, of course, was fantastic. We took a boat ride around the sanctuary and then spent time in nature.
This gorgeous statue is at the Mysore Zoo. Sitting comfortably in the middle of a large pond–isnt the goddess of wealth beautiful?
A great trip to Horsley Hills took us back to nature as we wandered around, admiring the greenery, birdsong and the prehistoric trees there.
Have a wonderful week ahead, folks!
You’re never fully dressed without a smile –
but having a great outfit can make your day, too.
