A Free Moment

My husband took our little guy for the day so I could have a bit of down time, as well as a big chunk of time to clean our very dirty home. Our son has recently decided he cannot sleep without his mother, and that he has no need of sleep until very late. That means no down time for me, and no time to clean without him around. So this day alone is a gift. Our friends from South Africa arrived safely last weekend, and their guys and my guys are hiking today whilst I enjoy the quiet.

I have recently discovered the joys of Nutella, so that will be on the menu for today. And if I can get out of my pajamas (the perfect cleaning uniform), I may even treat myself to a meal out all by myself. Or maybe a nap. Yes, a nap sounds lovely.

I have nothing deep to share, but wanted to pop in and say hello. Since making my other blog more private, I feel like I should at least write a bit more over here. But honestly, this season of life has me rather protective of myself, wanting to keep my heart and mind safely tucked away from view. But maybe, one day, I'll feel like sharing again. Or maybe I'll find a fun writing contest to enter, which will give me an excuse to post here.

Blessings to the 2.5 people who read this (if that many). =) I'm off to go clean with my remaining four hours of freedom.

Yay for mummy sanity time!

And nutella is SO lovely warmed slightly in the microwave and then with fresh fruit dipped in (banana being my personal favourite).

Hoping you had an amazingly productive day today and enjoyed your time alone, no matter what you did to fill it!

I'm glad you posted here. I've been missing you this past week or so. I'm so glad you had a Mom's day off. Give your hubby a thumbs up from me! :) A real one, not an Uncle Buck one. ;)
