My "spot" on the ledge

The Sun has returned. I hope He stays. I loved the snow but one night was enough for me, this series of days with bad weather has been too much for me. It has been too long.  My Canadian friends would laugh at the fact that although it snowed for a couple of nights there never was a layer of snow on the ground. But i digress, I need the Sun. My plants are so much happier today. Light glistens around the room because of the sun catchers's dancing with the wind.
I know, i know...I  am such a Leo sometimes and what's with all the cats's obsession with the Sun? Well. i can't describe it. It can not be put in words. My favorite thing growing up was sitting on a spot in my balcony, soaking in the Sun. I used to do my homework there, listen to my music, write poetry and meditate. My "spot" was on the ledge of the balcony and i had to climb up there a bit. All my neighbors used to watch me, probably thinking how uncomfortable it must be to sit there and perhaps wondering how i do not get bored. But my spot on the ledge could not get boring. I used to drive my poor mother crazy, especially during the hot greek summers,  making her  worry i would get heat stroke. But those were the best days, the Sun was stronger. I could not wait to get back from school and make a coffee, grab a book and my walkman(boy, i am old!). And although i hate the cold, the moment the Sun came out i would dress up in a million layers and go on the ledge(that sounds a bit suicidal!).
I miss my ledge. I tried to recreate it here. But the truth is there is only one place that the Sun would be just right. The problem is that it is on the most teenyy, tiny, tiniest of balconies that we currently use to keep our trash before we throw them out and it does not have a tent. I would be an extremely weird sight,  but then again i always have been one. My husband has tried to change my mind many times, because it would be inconvienient, since we are lazy people that take the trash out every two or three days. If i do that we would not have a place to keep the trash. Do not tell him that, but i think not collecting garbage anymore would be a plus. As for what the neighbors would think, i believe that it would not make them think i am any weirder than they already think i am.
So, what about you?  Do you have a "spot" that you enjoy sitting by the hours if given the chance?

I sit for hours in front of a computer -- does that count, lol? And yes, we Canadians are always guilty of thinking no one in the world has it as bad as we do in the winter. We're quite insufferably smug about it, actually!

I wish I did. Actually, I have a spot where I can sit and look out for hours, but it opens to a small courtyard surrounded by building walls. Can't see much of anything.

I certainly have a spot. I don't seat on it, but I stand in the middle of my plants, in front of three huge windows, to drink my coffee and look at the New York City skyline. It's soothing. And when I'm lucky (and my laziness doesn't steal the day) I get to see the sunrise and sunset standing there.

P.S. I, too, agree that not having a place for trash is a plus. Especially now that you guys have a babe. ♥

I'm not that fussed about sun well not at the moment as its so hot outside. Ask me again after the winter lol but yes as a teenager I would grab a towel and some reef oil and my walkma and sit out in the sun for hours soaking up the Rays as we call it here. Either on our backyard on the grass or at the beach
