The stars are aligning today. I will be alone in my house for a few hours of sweet solitude. Z and the boys left at 7 am to go snowboarding for the day. My brother and his lovely family are heading up to the cottage late morning to spend a few days with friends. So from 11 to whenever the lads return, I will be utterly alone.
I will admit that my plans include vacuuming up pine needles and laundry as well as eating leftovers, knitting, and reading. But it will be in silence, which has been a scarce commodity these past couple of weeks. And desperately needed.
