cff CONTENTMENT | Simple and Serene Living


Friday, April 26, 2019

I think I am feeling more contented than I have for a long time. 

No, I am still in the midst of the chaos of unpacking, but it isn't bothering me. 

It's a gorgeous day. The sun is shining, the temp is pretty much perfect, I am sitting next to the open window in my comfy chair, and James Taylor is playing. 

I think this may be the first time in my life that I have moved to a new town and not felt somehow displaced. 

This is the first day that I haven't had to run errands. It's nice to be able to enjoy my new place. 

The last two days I have been doing something I really enjoy. I was lucky to be able to score a garden space here and I have been buying and planting veggies. 

I did a little research on what grows well in Georgia, so I hope to have luck with what I have planted.

Hopefully in a couple of months I will be enjoying fresh tomatoes, peppers, basil, eggplant, cucumbers, and spaghetti squash. 

I don't even have to worry about watering, because the sprinkler system here does it automatically. 

I got up this morning, went downstairs and rode the stationary bike, checked on my garden, and walked around enjoying the woods. 

I call that contentment. 


  1. So happy for you. Contentment is wonderful.

  2. You definitely sound content. Good for you, enjoy ~ FlowerLady

  3. I'm glad you're happy. And that garden space should really make you happy! Digging in the dirt is so good for your mood. Wanting to see pics of your new place!

  4. I am so happy for you, being an Atlanta girl myself. Welcome hone.

  5. Oh that's a wonderful word!... and a feeling. So glad you got a garden spot... always fun seeing the results of your work.. and how neat that there is a sprinkler system to do the watering for you! I'm anxious to see pictures of your place... maybe from a distance too (your apartment complex) so I can picture in my mind where you are living... if you live close to those woods, then that is wonderful too. That would bring me MUCH contentment, just having those woods nearby. Glad you are feeling so good about your move. Marilyn

  6. So happy to see you moved and settling in to your new place. The garden space is awesome and I know you will love the fresh veggies you produce.
    Happy Weekend.

  7. I'm so happy for you, Laura!! And to have a garden space to boot - perfect!!
