  1. Hesitant to say this, but what is ‘cocooning??” 😐 If it’s something to do with a baby (newborn) and bundling the kid up tightly, heck no! No kids here. If it’s being restricted in movement due to being bundled up, again..heck no. I hate being tied up at all. Even tight clothing is an issue for me. If I’m off base with the description, please do share what that is. I always enjoy being educated! πŸ™‚

    1. You’ll be happy to know that ”cocooning” is none of the above πŸ™‚ It actually means staying home, away from any source of outside stress… Usually by doing very ”hygge” things like dressing in comfy pjs, wrapping yourself in your favorite blanket and eating comfort food! πŸ™‚

      1. AH! Well then, I’m an expert at that. Could teach classes in it actually. πŸ˜€ I never heard the term “cocooning” before though. Most often used term is “isolating”. 😐 I like the cocoon idea better though. One MIGHT emerge as as a butterfly! πŸ˜€

      2. I did a little research, and it seems like it is a North American term… I am guessing it is more common here in Canada, and we start enjoying cocooning more this time of year when the temperature drops πŸ˜‰ I haven’t grown wings yet, but I am still hoping, hehehehehe

  2. Yes I think I am very good at it at times. I go through phases where it is all I want to do and fine with it for weeks or months at a time. Then there are times that I hate being in the house. It just depends one what is going on at the time. I don’t get to right now to often.

    1. I totally get it. Cocooning for me is a winter thing. I don’t see the use of it during summer, when it is nice to be outside. But as soon as the temperature starts flirting with the freezing point, I switch into cocooning mode πŸ˜›

  3. I wondered what cocooning was too. It reminded me of that film…with the things in the swimming pool that energise the older folk who go swimming in the water.

    This is something we only ever used to do during the Christmas holidays…but not all the time. Mum would be at work and Dad would take us children to visit people who would be on their own. They were cocooned against their will, stuck with no family to visit the,. So Dad would take us little ones to invade their peace and quiet and eat their biscuits!

    So I think we were a mix…we were allowed a short stint of cocooning ourselves…and then we became the anti-cocoon brigade.

    1. Anti-cocoon brigade, I love it πŸ™‚ I don’t think cocooning should ever be forced, so it is a great thing that your parents raised you to break these people’s loneliness!

      Oh, and I must admit, thinking about it, I can see why it reminded you of Cocoon, and that gives a weird twist to my question, LOL

    1. I can certainly understand that… Watching my parents growing older, I can see that they too seem to need to be busy more and more, as the years go by. I guess time just becomes more precious when you slowly but surely run out of it (and I don’t say that in a fatalist way) πŸ™‚

      1. In my life I find that with my horse pursuits: riding , training, competing and blogging and doing laundry…. life is just BUSY. And yes I will have time to stop and perhaps rest when I’m gone. Or maybe I’ll be busy there too!🀣

      2. As Bon Jovi sang… ”I’m gonna live while I’m alive, and sleep when I’m dead” πŸ˜› Well, I’m still going to be doing some cocooning, since I am not wise enough yet LOL
