Daydreaming Of Ireland…And Warmer Weather

Happy Friday everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted anything this week, but I have been/still am under the weather for the last several days (which means I am pretty much worthless at the moment).  The weather has turned prematurely chilly here and between that and the unholy war Nature is leveling against my sinuses, I’ve been huddled under the blanket sniffling helplessly listening to music, daydreaming, and trying to catch up on my reading list when my foggy head will allow. I will have a proper post for you all hopefully early next week as I’m hoping to kick some serious allergy/sinus butt this weekend!

I don’t know about y’all but when I don’t feel well, I tend to daydream about happy things to get my mind off the fact that I can’t breathe through my left and/or right nostril, and that I generally feel like a big blob of ickiness. Ireland is my easy, go-to happy place; I can’t wait until my mom and I actually get to visit Ireland for ourselves! I’m partially Irish (and so is she) and just the thought of roving those rolling, mystical, green hills with my best friend fills me with undiluted joy!  There’s something so magical and intriguing about Ireland, with its haunting music and wonderful stories, that just draws me in and refuses to release me. And of course there’s always a mysterious, lighthearted, quick to smile, and just down-right handsome Irishman waiting to sweep me off my feet in my dreams! (I’ve got my fingers crossed for reality, lol.) I don’t know what it is, but Ireland just inspires me; it takes my breath away and leaves me content and happy just thinking about it.

Alas, my cocoon of blanket-y warmth is calling to my frozen fingers and toes! So for now, I’ll happily continue daydreaming of my adventures in Ireland with my mom and falling in love with the (Irish) man of my dreams! Perhaps we’ll all take a side-trip to Spain as well… I figure Ireland is pretty cold this time of year and I’m already partially frozen 😉 I take my leave of you all until next week, enjoy your weekend! But first…what places inspire you to daydream? Is there anywhere you find yourself longing to visit when you don’t feel well? Or do you escape into books or movies?

  1. Ireland is my favourite place in the world! Half of my family comes there and when we go to visit, well, I can’t help but feel excited. I couldn’t have described it better than you did – great post. Long live the Irish 🙂

    • Thank you! You’re so lucky to get to visit; I can’t wait to go there one day! 😀 (Sorry, I originally replied right after you commented, but I clicked the wrong button I guess and it didn’t reply to your comment, I just replied to the post. My bad!)

  2. First of all, love your pics of Ireland. I was so close to going to Ireland one year. We went to Costa Rica instead, which I didn’t regret, just wish somehow I had the money and time for both.

    But where would I go? Japan is one place. I’m hoping to go again next year. I’ve already been there during a phenomenal cherry blossom season, I’m hoping to catch the fall leaves at the right time this time around. But there’s a certain spot in Costa Rica I could definitely escape to right now with this weather. There’s a tidal pool the size of a large jacuzzi where you can sit almost eye level with the ocean and watch a gorgeous sunset. Mmmm… yep, that’s definitely a happy place.

  3. My favorite place in the world is Paulina Lake, which is near Bend, Oregon, and has a great campground. I know it doesn’t sound very impressive, but I would go there every year if I could.

    I also wouldn’t turn down a trip to Ireland, though, either… 😉 Hope you’re feeling much better!

    • Thank you, I am feeling a lot better actually! I think a beautiful lake sounds like a great place to visit, escpecially if there’s a good campground with it. I’m not much of a camper but I LOVE to swim! 😀
