I cannot remember the last time I was alone in my own house. Mamas, it's a rare thing, isn't it? But yesterday, I found myself in just that situation - with all my people off a day-long adventure and me at home waiting for a meeting that was a little delayed. Home! Alone! But what's a mama to do? Why...make some new pillows, paint a bookshelf, and wander around her house marveling at the sun and the silence and the left-behind sights of those she loves. Oh, and a little bit of tea with knitting too. Naturally.
It was all rather delightful. As was wrapping my arms around them the very moment they walked back in the door.
