I like staying home.
For one thing, it's cheaper. Staying home, Amazon Kindle Store is my sole temptation.
Going out - today, for example - I was tempted by the following:
A chocolate bar.
A box of chai tea.
A box of fruit tea.
An apricot danish.
Four thrift store dresses.
One thrift store embroidery.
Two thrift store books.
An English Breakfast tea.
A raspberry cheesecake.
A skirts for $69 sale.
A book on Arab-Israeli history.
A set of lower case stamps.
And no, I'm not telling you which items I resisted and which I didn't.
I also quite like housework. Especially morning kitchen work. It feels so virtuous to cook a breakfast for the two loved ones who will eat my breakfasts. And then to clean the kitchen. Dishes, benches, floor. Finishing with a clean tablecloth, open curtains. It's so...orderly.
I wish I could keep my kitchen looking like a Karl Larsson painting all day long, but I can't, because people keep coming into it and using it.
I'm not so keen on use of the kitchen after breakfast, except for tea making and cake slicing and chat.
I did think these salad vegies, grown by the neighbours, looked pretty though. So I celebrated the Finding of the Camera Cord and took a picture. See ?
