Warm and Cozy
We’ve had our first fire of the season. The pellet stove has been serviced and we’re ready for come what may as the cooler weather approaches. I anticipate this change with the same enthusiasm as I feel for spring when its time comes. There will be beautiful days and dreary days, but any day is good when I’m home with my family.
I’ve spent this past week on a staycation. I honestly have no desire to venture far from home. After 30 years on the job, very stressful at times, it means more to me than anything to simply enjoy the quiet. Monday morning I’ll be back in the middle of a pile of work I can’t finish before the end of the day, and all the while I’ll be surrounded by a cacophony of ringing phones, multiple simultaneous conversations, babies crying, questions coming at me from all directions. . . I’m so ready to retire, but that’s not in the picture for a few years yet. Today I’ll enjoy the peace of home and hearth and stock up on enough Wally and LuLu love to see me through that first day back at work. I hope you have a good day, as well. Love to you!
