Antithesis

Today has been the antithesis of the last 3 months. It is 2:26 pm. I'm still in my jammies. I'm sitting here at the computer, snacking on good gouda cheese and excellent bread. I've updated blogs and my photography website. I've mailed out bookmooch books and put some more up for mooching. I sorted through some yarn and packed some up to give away. The house is pretty much clean because that happened yesterday. The only thing on the agenda is a little more birthday celebrating later on after a blessedly blank afternoon. I'm going to finish a proposal for a project to be published in a knitting magazine, then I think I'll putter a bit in the garden, then read a bit. It's kind of fun to have no real agenda and be able to do whatever I want.

As usually happens, the school year is filling up quickly and the myth of long, empty days while the kids are gone is disappearing like lightening bugs in August with every item I put on the calendar. My class at HCC starts Tuesday, and I have no idea how much homework that will require. I've also decided to take on a fairly major volunteer position at school since neither of my kids is in a fall sport, and I have no real sense of how much time that will take. So, I'm going to enjoy a nothing day to the fullest and keep feeling this blessed floating feeling for a little while longer.

  1. Days like this are awesome. It make sit all the more sweet, when surrounded by craziness before and craziness to come. I know I wouldn't change the craziness, but it is fun to have a break.
