Feels Like Home to Me

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

A window breaks down a long dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright 'cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see through the dark there's light

-- Chantal Kreviazuk

It's been a rough couple days around here. Both Andy and I spent the weekend away from the cabin: me at my parents' place in town, Andy at an out of state sports show. The last few days have been low on sleep, high on drama. While I'm normally a huge proponent of shaking up the everyday, this go-round, I just wanted to be home.

So imagine my delight when we pulled into the cabin late yesterday morning.

Back with the cheeky squirrels.
Giving the houseplants a well-deserved drink of water.
Hearing the fire roar into life in the stove.

Making a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup.

Enjoying the quiet twilight hour when only chickadees and nuthatches flit quietly about the feeder area, delicately selecting a sunflower seed before fluttering back to the shelter of trees.  

Dorothy said it best: "There's no place like home."

What's your favorite part of being home?


  1. What a lovely life you live! :)

    Even more lovely is that fact that you know it and actually live it :)


  2. Everything. Even on days when I'm feeling overwhelmed by the clutter and knowing that we need a bigger place now..our small little slice of earth that we call home is the place I long to be. Especially when family is there to make it home.

  3. Home is where you make it, I think, where things are how you like it. A little space to take a break from the world :) I sometimes feel like home is people, too.

  4. Home is where the heart is! or I wouldnt have crossed the pond!

  5. I think you have an edge on my with how relaxing your home is! I absolutely love you stove.
    I do love to unwind quietly at home... sometimes the activity of life can be so crazy.

  6. I couldn't agree more. It's always great to get out but there's just something so comforting about being in YOUR home, it's definitely irreplacable.

  7. Your home sounds so lovely! My favorite part of returning home is the familiar sounds and the quiet!
