hello there, friend,

i woke this morning to a quiet house and without an alarm, a few small sounds from downstairs alerting me to the fact that one of my children was up. the other two, i knew, remained asleep. a few hours later and although i've checked some things off my mental to-do list, i am still in my pajamas, still sipping coffee. there is something magical about having a monday off. a chance to start the week off unharried, rested and rejuvenated.

for the first time in a while, there is nothing on today's agenda, really... a bit of cleaning, some reading, and some game-playing. a slow walk later. dinner will be leftovers. i'm savoring every little bit.
