I dropped T off at the airport at 8:20 this morning. She is on her trip to Hawaii with her sister. They will be gone for a week. I really hope that she can spend the time resting and restoring her physical and mental self. She is tired. This will do her good.
So, that means that I have my house to myself for a week! Yay! Time for quiet and reflection, or projects that are on my list. My time is my own. I'm tempted to take the week off work but I'm saving my PTO for something else. Well, I might take one day off... plus, Monday is President's Day and I have that day off. So, yes, some quality time home alone.
Listen, you NorthEasters, NorthCentralers, GreatLakers, GreatPlainsers (you know who you are), Spring is coming. I know it may not seem like it right now, but it's on its way. I promise. We are being battered with rain but the bulb flowers are pushing through the soil and will be blooming any day now. So, hold on. Have hot chocolate. Or a hot toddy. Look out at the snow and plunging thermometer and say, 'Spring is coming.'
I'm off to go do something. Not sure what just yet. Might just walk around the house a bit and see what bubbles up to the top. Cheers!
