Every year we rearrange the furniture to accommodate the tree, the dinners and the extra lovely people. The resulting configuration is more than pleasant, and I always ask that we leave it when the tree has gone out to rest in the arms of the Persimmon--sofa and occasional chairs in the dining room and dining table in the larger living room.
This year I didn't ask. Little reasons for returning objects to their old pattern were shifted slightly until they were no longer a problem. This year, for the first time, we are keeping the cozy sitting area and enjoying the larger dining space. And here is where the unexpected gift arrived.
|Perfect lunch location|
A snuggly, comfortable chair is now in the sunshine in the early afternoon. I ate my lunch in that chair, in the sunshine, warm and pleasant though it was winter outside--best of the various Things I get to do today.
Any of you who are going crazy with the cold and the winter, consider rearranging your furniture. Create an oasis of sunshine available sometime during your day. Snuggle and bask in the delicious warmth of this gift to yourself and your soul.
