Veronica at Owl Wonder nominated me for The Daydreamer Award. “My paternal grandmother would be so proud,” I think, as I smirk and snort.
The rules for The Daydreamer Award:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Complete the challenge they set you.
3. Select a blog or blogs that you want to give the award to. (The amount of blogs you select is unlimited!)
4. Tell them about it and set them a challenge.
Thank you, Veronica! I’m always pleased to be nominated for awards.
My common daydream lacks imagination, really, since it’s based in memory.
For several years, The Mister and I had a pattern of visiting my parents and escaping childless to a cottage on Sanibel Island.
Freedom from responsibilities.
Long days, uninterrupted by children or schedules.
Playing in the surf, walking miles of empty shore.
Raw oysters and cold beer.
Laughing and smiling until my cheeks hurt.
Long passionate nights.
Sleeping to the sound of the ocean.
Cheese and olives and wine.
My head in his lap while we read.
I suppose if I had a better imagination, I’d place my parents seaside, but much further north, and then I wouldn’t be dreadfully hot and sunburnt at the end of it. If I were a better daydreamer, I suppose it could be anywhere…
Tell me a daydream!
