Simply 3 hours of alone time.

Should I hang up bunting?  That's how exciting this is!

I have an overnight retreat tonight at work.

This means that I'm going in late.
 This also means that we still took Junia to daycare and Sean still went to work because I am still going into work.

So what then is this wierd void? Alone time in my house?  Praise the Lord we don't live in community! Or live in a house with 10 other relatives. Or have roommates. Or any of the other sort of mixes that happen in households.  Because I am getting some legit alone time here.

Much to my surprise I am happy to leave the pile of laundry on the living room floor.
Or a gift baby quilt on the sewing machine.
or the kitchen piled with dishes.

Rather, I am going to take my journal.
And a novel I am trying to finish reading.
and another book I am working through down to the neighborhood bakery.
I am going to order a latte.
Two pastries.

And I am going to sit until I start to think about other things.

And, wouldn't you know it today is even sunny.


  1. I hope the sun on your shoulders, a good book, and the latte were everything you needed to re-energize for a bit.

  2. Ahh! Coffee and two pastries - my idea of heaven. Add a good book and opportunities to people watch and it is perfect! Thanks so much for following my blog. I am now a new follower of Did i. I am looking forward to reading your blog as well!
