In our last post we gave you some tips on how to unwind in your home. We posed the question to ourselves and came up with the following. Some you will know and some may be fun to add to your repertoire.
My favourite thing to do in my home is be still… my favourite place to be still is in what my brother in law Billy calls the “Tea Time with Dwaina Set.” An imaginary interview program where I share cozy chats with my guests over a cup of tea… which is not far from the truth about this spot. I meditate here, I read here and I do in fact have cozy chats with my family and friends here.
My favourite thing to do at home is to have a relaxing, candlelit soak in my bathtub. ~Lauren
My favorite thing to do in my home is get cozy in my bed where I read, watch TV or sometimes just sit in silence. My super soft bedding and my inclining bed make it the Ferrari of all beds for reading or watching TV. I even hang out in my bed with friends and watch TV because it’s such a cozy room. ~Josephina
I make terrariums with my boyfriend; we have taught ourselves essentially and really enjoy it. Our home is filled with them. ~Molly
I am devoted to making people love living in their homes. I have done that with absolute joy for most of my life and as a career for the past 20 years or so...
I am a homebody – I do not actively seek adventure but I have had adventures. I believe home is the most sacred and important place in the world. I say I grew up on a farm – but I doubt technically it would qualify as a farm. Five acres – one milk cow – one calf - we ate them when they grew up, lots of chickens and a few pigs – we ate them too…
I was that kid who dragged rugs and furniture out to the orchard and set up outdoor rooms. It mixed my two favourite things – outside and comfortable furniture. My friends and I would sleep outside in my “rooms”. It was magical because my ceiling was full of stars.
I have lived in small houses, big houses, basement suites, cottages, condos and apartments. I have built and I have renovated houses. For a short time in my young life I was without a home
– this changed me. I have lived with pets, wanted and unwanted – rodents are unwanted… I have lived in a house richly full with the raising of my four children. I have had the tremendous
joy of my children carrying my grandchildren into my home. I have had my home become an “empty nest” and my life shrunken and shattered with the loss of my beloved husband.
Home and my people there have always been my comfort. It does not matter where home is, it only matters that you are in it and that you find comfort there and that is why I do what I do.
