Wishcasting Wednesday

What do you wish to savour?

That magical Jamie at Starshyne Productions has us in deep contemplation again this week. For her Wishcasting Wednesday prompt this week, Jamie asks, "What do you wish to savour?"

That side of me that craves immediate satisfaction never gave it a second thought and answered, "Ice cream! Iced coffee! Ice cold melon!" Ahh . . . it all sounds wonderful.

But the too-often-neglected quieter side of me whispered "tranquility please. a few slow, silent hours s'il vous plait."

My schedule has recently changed at work, and starting this week, I'll have off every other Friday. I am very excited. And while I would normally start making a list of all the extra things I can get done around the house, I'm going to refrain - at least for this week.

I'm going to savor waking up when my eyes open on their own, and not to the sound of the radio.

I'm going to savor my first cup of coffee quietly on the patio instead of drinking it without even tasting it while reading my e-mail.

I'm going to savor staying in my pajamas for a little while.

I'm going to savor sitting in meditation, if only for fifteen minutes (which I haven't done for a long time).

I'm going to savor running my finger along the spines of the books on my shelves deciding which one to read next.

I'm going to savor the quiet of no TV, no radio, no telephone.

I'm going to savor a nap in the afternoon (after doing pretty much nothing all morning).

Whatever you wish for, I wish for you also.


  1. Your savoring plans sound great, Janet... and especially with summer here and lazy days ahead. Fridays off--hooray! :O)

  2. Hi Janet :) I savoured reading your post, sensing everything you described, and savouring it; a lovely experience through your words:) Whatever you wish for, I wish for you.

  3. As Janet wishes for herself, so I wish for her as well.

    Oooh, it sounds so delicious, I wish I could come over and hang out in my pajamas and join you :)

  4. As Janet wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

    How wonderful! Enjoy your precious, spacious Friday!
