I love the word Bliss, don't you?  I think I like it so much because it is not overused and it is so full of meaning.

The definition, according to is: supreme happiness; utter joy or contentment.

I have decided to make today a day of bliss for myself.  It is easy for us to run ourselves ragged, to always go, go, go.

Today, while I have home keeping to do, including two 1/2 bushel boxes of peaches, I am going to revel in my home.  I am going to pamper our little cottage, make her smell sweet, bring fresh flowers inside.  I am going to listen to beautiful music, burn a candle, laugh with my family. 

I am going to enjoy my new Victoria magazine!  It's the British issue, and the September/October issue!  Just look at those luscious colors on the cover!  Inside is full of delights too.

Sigh...I can already feel the contentment welling up inside me....


  1. You certainly deserve such a day. Hope that you'll be mightily blessed on this blissed-out day. British issue...???

  2. Good for you. I know I have fealt worn down lately, not enough hours in the day for everything I want to accomplish.

    A day of bliss is probably in order.

    Enjoy yours!

  3. And prepare to spend some lovely time with a bloggy friend tomorrow, right?

    Enjoy your day, my friend.

  4. I perused it last night, LOVE the British issues. :)

    Hubby has to work today, the freshmen are arriving so the bookstore decided to have him come in early this semester.

    Sooo... I'm going to work on a few little puttering projects around home, too.

    Are you having the beautiful temperatures?

  5. I love the word, too. Today in N.E. Indiana FEELS like a September or October day. I think I'LL go get a candle out to burn, too! I don't have any peaches though....but plenty of chores to keep me happily busy :)

    I KNOW you're going to have a wonderful day.

  6. Enjoy your day of *bliss* sweet lady. :o)

  7. You deserve such a day! Enjoy every minute of it!

  8. Oh, I hope that your blissful day was all that you hoped for! It sounds delightful! We all need day of respite now and then, don't we?
