A Wednesday Morning

I am here, at my table, finishing breakfast and listening to my little ones play.  This consists of Gabe making a constant droning sound while wheeling his fire truck around on our big chair.  Woooooooo oh eeeeh, oh oooooooooo.  Sunny is in a corner with a book.  She loves corners.  Christian is alternating between books by his sister and trucks with his brother.  He's my diplomatic kid.  I love this time of day.  We are all still in our pajamas with a day as blank as a canvas, ready to be filled.

The morning is dark and a bit cooler than last week.  This time of year is lovely.  The space between sweaty days and snowy ones.  I like this time.  I'm missing where we were last fall.  I miss the mountains and friends and especially my family.  It's amazing the distance 50 miles becomes when busy lives are so, well, busy.

I'm thinking about how I need to fill that canvas today.  The floor needs to be washed.  Laundry needs to be folded.  We should all get dressed.  Also, all the kids have now huddled together with a book in the corner.  I think I'll join them.

I'll leave you with what my once mountain home looks like this time of year.
