Josh is gone today. He left yesterday morning with a group of friends to go on an overnight snowmanchine trip to a cabin up north. The kids and I have had fun, visited with friends, played together and just over all just got things done. You might think that with Josh away for the evening that I would use that time after the kids were in bed to work on blog posts. I myself had thought I would do that but alas, that is not what I did. Instead after I tucked each sleeping child in I stoked the fire, hung some laundry and then as I walked towards the computer I passed my book. I did not make it any further. Instead of the more length and elaborate blog posts that could of been written I read and how wonderful it was. How I have missed having a time to sit in a quiet house and absorb words from a good book. So even though the plan for writing multiple posts didn't pan out I do feel calm, refreshed and full of thankfulness that my book was in place just before the computer. I hope in the days to come this feeling of peace will remain with me until I can once again find a little bit of time to enjoy the quiet and a good book.
And just for fun I have attached this little video. It was taken a few days ago and helps to remind me of the joys of being an energetic toddler.
