What Could You Buy That Could Help You Make the Most of Where You Live?


Author Melody Warnick asks a very smart question that immediately resonated with me:

~ What could you buy (or borrow or rent) that would help you make the most of where you live? ~

For me the answer is the 2 outdoor chairs that you see in the above photo 😊

I make no secret about the fact that I LOOOOVE to spend time under the wide open sky in the evenings. I used to just stand or walk in circles looking up at the wide, astoundingly beautiful night sky, say my prayers and feel grateful & content. Evenings are usually cool and breezy making the personal time even more pleasant.

A few weeks ago I had the brilliant idea to buy those chairs and, now my evening musings are even that much more delicious πŸ’– At times my husband joins me, at times my eldest, but mostly I’m alone.Β  And sometimes, in the late afternoons, I also do my crochet outside thanks to these inexpensive chairs.

How about you? What’s your answer to the question? πŸ™‚

      1. Hmmm … must be very rainy where you’re from? I don’t have any over here in Indonesia πŸ™‚ It’s hot & sunny right now but when it’s rainy season we usually get by with just huge umbrellas β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈ

      2. Originally from the UK where it rains lots. Now living in South of France where it rains on fewer days but when it does rain……it pours.

    1. Actually, I bought the chairs well before I stumbled on the question πŸ™‚ But yeah I agree, it deserves some rumination especially if you’re not used to it. Let me know once you’ve found your answer πŸ™‚


  1. Nice – my response is not what I could by but what I bought that has enhanced my life – a rug/quilt – thrown on the ground anywhere and sat upon (or prayed upon) in the big outdoors with sky and space around me.
