FF: Peaceful Night In

PHOTO PROMPT © Na’ama Yehuda

It’s just the two of us, a shared blanket, two mugs of hot cocoa, and Lord of the Rings Extended Edition, the whole trilogy. Halfway through Fellowship, cat number one decides we really are planning to stay for the whole marathon and jumps up on your lap. Then, cat number two snuggles up next to me, and there, the whole family is here.

I fall asleep, head on your shoulder, somewhere between Helm’s Deep and Gondor.

I don’t care what anyone else says. This is it, man. This is heaven on earth.


Thanks to Na’ama Yehuda and Rochelle for this week’s prompt.

Meanwhile, here’s the latest, from the US to the rest of the northern hemisphere. Apparently, Phil saw his shadow this year, which means another long winter. Darn it, Phil.

  1. You’re right.
    You’ve painted a picture of the complete contentment of being close to the person you love most, totally accepted and totally relaxed. That’s lovely!

  2. This reminded me of a time when my husband and I and two pre-teen kids spent a weekend watching the LORs full edition; think we had milkshakes instead of hot chocolate! Good times. My adult son continues to do this with his friends every year. Thanks for painting the picture with words.

  3. Dear Anne,

    There’s nothing more soothing than a purring cat. Mine used to wedge behind me on my computer chair and start purring. I’d end up nodding off at the keyboard.
    Such a sweet cozy scene you’ve set. Well done.



    1. LOL. Yeah, I would hope so. It’s been a while since I did a LOTR marathon. I’ve heard some people do Hobbit and LOTR marathons, and I imagine that must be your whole week as opposed to just a couple of days. Definitely need some breaks in the middle for that. LOL.

  4. I loved this – it really is the truth; heaven is here on earth in the form of all the small joys in life.
