These are the days I love...a day spent at home.
Sleeping in and late breakfast
Math, history and science
Counting money and solving problems
Compromising and coming up with a better way
Lego building and Lone Ranger watching
Children on the mend from bad allergies
No place to be
Star Wars Lego games and chess blitz tournaments
Concerning Hobbits and Jim Croce playing in the background
A sunny fall day with a breeze blowing in through the window.
Dinner in the oven early and a nice salad prepared
Kitchen clean, dishwasher humming and washing machine filling
Laughter that I missed hearing yesterday
Finding out that weird smell in the laundry room was only new modeling clay
The house is still dusty, the bathtub could use a good scrub.
Grading hasn't been done...
People are still hoarse and stuffy
But these are the days that all the "wrong" things don't seem to matter as much.
Perspective in our safe haven
Regrouping, healing and just being
Without running, racing and trying to keep up.
These are the days....
