Today I am working on my final deadline for the month - writing a unit study article for Home School Enrichment magazine. It's been a busy month with lots of deadlines and things that needed to get accomplished. Most of the time I have felt that I am barely keeping my head above water, and I'm a horrible swimmer.
The house is quiet. All of my guys are gone to various jobs for the day. I find myself with time to think, regroup, reflect and plan. As much as I love my guys, I relish this time alone. It is rejuvenating to my soul. I always have enjoyed being a 'home body,' but find lately I particularly enjoy those times when I have hours by myself.
So this afternoon finds me working on my article. I have 166 words completed - only about 1100 more to write! :) I hope to be able to have it roughly on paper by late this afternoon, so I can polish it over the weekend. I'm thankful for the this down time to be able to write and relax.
