Daydream Believer

I could hide ‘neath the wings

The six o’clock alarm would never ring

Imagine not worrying about the alarm going off… and the day beginning.
I attended a webinar the other night and the lady who was running it asked us a question. “What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning”? The answers from those of us in attendance were many and varied. Mine wasn’t very complimentary lol
However, I digress.
I go off on tangents sometimes.

Did I ever tell you about the time that the Garden Gnome and myself were out on the road and travelling? We had spent the day following our instincts and driving up gravelled roads and following signs for things we had no idea about. We were off the beaten track and loving every minute.

I had taken that many photos I was surprised the camera’s memory card wasn’t full and the Garden Gnome never tired of me asking him to stop so I could snap off a shot of something I had spotted from my seat in the passenger side of the car.

The day was drawing to a close and we were looking for somewhere to stay the night when I spotted this gorgeous little caravan park off to the left. It had overnight vans and cabins still available. We checked in and took our key and then drove slowly through the park to our cabin.
Arriving at the cabin we found it surrounded by trees and looking out onto the ocean. Pelicans bobbed in the water and some were up on the beach where the park visitors were feeding them.
The Garden Gnome paused from unloading the car and comes over to join me.

I sighed with bliss, contentment and happiness….

You mean I never told you? Sorry about that.
That’s probably because it is just a daydream.
Funnily enough, the Garden Gnome just came in to talk to me whilst I was writing this and I read him some of what I wrote. He said “So we aren’t towing our own van? Okay, that’s probably best because otherwise we’d need an off-road van. I like this daydream.”

Wow. It’s great to dream. It’s even better to have someone who shares the same dream.

So why am I sharing a daydream with you?
That would be because the gorgeous Jolene at Joeyfullystated nominated me for the Daydreamer Award. And I wish to thank her because that was such a wonderful daydream to spend time with.

  1. I like your daydream and your ability to do it. You deserve the award. As for my thoughts when I first wake up — always the same. “You’ll feel much better once you get out of bed,” and “I wish my mother had realized that all those years she stayed in bed.”

  2. Thanks for the daydream, I now have Davy Jones and the Monkeys in my head (which isn’t a bad thing I love them) and I was with you every step of the way thinking yes don’t plan, just go….. so I share the dream, good luck and hopefully it will become a reality soon enough and we can read in earnest about it and see the pictures for real! πŸ™‚

  3. Great dream Suz -imagine you already have all the major components – the Garden Gnome, the car, the health and means to travel, the photography skill and tools, the eyesight to view the world, the geography that enables travelling. It says a lot positive about the choices you’ve made in your life that your dreams are so attainable. It also says a lot about your peace of mind that you live so close to your dreams.

    Cool post Suz.

  5. What a lovely daydream. Thank you for nominating me. I shall gather my thoughts and see if I can come up with a daydream that I don’t stop before it gets to the good part because I couldn’t possibly be so relaxed enough to daydream. πŸ˜€

  6. Lovely daydream, Suze! Thank you kindly for nominating me! I will see what I can come up with. Most of my life is spent in a bit of a daydream of sorts. Sometimes real life is a bit of a blur!
    Will be late with my blog as a family member got hit by a car while cycling last week and while he is not seriously hurt, there has been quite a bit of drama and stress so I am still a bit fuzzy. Am very thankful the outcome was ok! Perhaps I will daydrean of a world where people can safely cycle without fear! πŸ˜‰

    1. I saw something on the news about a doctor who was hit riding a bike. Was that your family member?
      It is so difficult these days with so many people wanting to use the roads and common courtesy appears to be a thing of the past.

  7. I enjoyed reading your daydream, and especially the part about the cabin tucked in the trees near the ocean. That would be perfect! Thank you for nominating me! Sorry for the late response. It’s a busy time of year.

      1. My ex and I used to do something similar, but in a smaller way, when the kids got into their late teens. We would get in the car and decide at each intersection which way to go. We would meander around central Canada (Canada is even bigger than Australia so two weeks only got you a bit of the country) never having any plans and stopping to look at anything either of wanted to see. We made no reservations and just chose Bed and breakfasts and small motels when we got tired. It was very relaxing and liberating.

        Cool dream Suz.
