Summer has taken a deep breath and let out a cool breeze. Cool enough to drape blankets and quilts over the backs of our favorite resting spots.
I too am taking a deep breath, inhaling my newly found personal time, exhaling into my newly acquired personal space. Five whole hours every day and the house to myself. Breathe in, breathe out. Ahhhh.
There are floors to be scrubbed and green beans to be pickled. Terry Gross will keep me company with her breath of Fresh Air.
When my work is done, I'll settle down in this cozy location to graft the toe on sock #2. Later today when the kids get home, we'll take this quilt outside and spread it on the grass in the shade. Avery will do her math homework, Aidan will practice drawing little a's and b's, and I will cast on baby sock #2. Perhaps tonight we'll snuggle under this same quilt and read a few chapters together.
Take a deep breath in, exhale slowly. I think I'll get used to this new schedule just fine.
