The Easter long weekend started early this year. I had an extra day off and goodness, is that not just the best thing someone could ask one. 24 hours of 'free' time.
I woke up late, cause I could. I had breakfast, cause I had time. I shaved my legs, for the same reason I had breakfast and it felt good. I felt good.
I spent the day driving to the country where my Grand-Aunty lives and just because we could, we took the longer route. When does anyone ever do that? I mean, I can't remember the last time I consciously took the 'longer' route anywhere. We live in a culture that never stops. We are constantly moving and communicating at speeds that are unimaginable. We never slow.
Today though was different. We did slow and we did take our time and you know what? That made all the difference.
I've always liked coming here. The wind feels different across my skin and the smells and colours are so warm to the senses. I spend my time here wandering around the garden, finding new nooks that I didn't notice before. I discover and explore. You see, this is why I am a city girl. It makes trips like these, into the country, that much more unique and special.
Nothing beats it.
