a much needed day in the den…

Ahh… peace and quiet. Finally, I feel as though I am a bit energized again. I am a mumma who NEEDS her rest, the way crops need rain, or a baby needs food… it is non-negotiable. We have had a ton of fun so far this summer, but it has been anything but peaceful. We have enjoyed driving to several states on a regular basis, discovering new things, being among the throngs of summer gawkers, amazed at the sights. I like being out and about, but for my own sanity, I have to spend at least one quiet day a week at home, without planning an elaborate meal or anything else too taxing. I need my day for reading, folding laundry, writing actual letters to friends, being quiet and able to breathe deeply. The Professor is an energizer bunny, he can go all day, every day and still want to have friends over for dinner. =)

He is headed out to study with friends, and my foxling and I are doing some lessons. Maths, latin and reading, followed by test prep and her choice of electives. A cool 3.5 hour oasis of learning, focused energy to ponder over. After that, we are making a light lunch and watching Grey’s until The Professor gets home, at which time we will play games until dinner. =) Ahh… bliss ! =) I hope in the midst of summer craziness, you can find a bit of time to put your feet up and do what soothes your soul.
