Home Alone: How Do You Like to Spend Time By Yourself?

Pin it button big

Whether your roommates are family members, friends, or practically strangers (and especially then), sometimes it's just nice to have the place to yourself. I see these times as a sort of escape and an opportunity to recharge. 

I don't often have my home to myself, but earlier this week my husband was out of town staying with friends. I didn't do anything very exciting — just kind of silly. I turned up some of my favorite music (Magnetic Fields, if you're asking) and sang loudly to myself in a Stephin-Merritt-voice while watching a guilty pleasure movie (on mute) and pinning images for my parents' living room makeover. If it were winter, I'd have taken a hot bath. All in all it was a pleasant and simple, albeit temporary, change of pace.

How do you enjoy your time alone at home?
