We’re in mostly summer mode here and one thing I do for me is get up before the kids and have quiet time. In the school year it’s after the frantic school drop off time. Somehow after dealing with 2 teens and a pre-teen, quiet time is less appealing.
Quiet time begins at the computer……….reading emails, catching up on facebook and then………the blogs. I usually read and comment blogs before I write. I may have written a beginning the night before, or even written it at night and have it update after midnight, but my best times for writing are late at night or early in the morning. I try to let things just happen, but I admit I have a few Memes or theme posts that I enjoy, this being one and my Friday Five.
Blogging or writing about my life, my family, my books, and on and on it goes, these all bring me great pleasure and a sense of some creativity. I am not a crafty person, nor do I believe I decorate with great flourish, but I do enjoy writing………..and my quiet time is much about that.
So let the dust bunnies multiply, let the laundry sit, I’m pouring another cup of coffee and enjoying a bit more peace.
PS, one teen is up…………and the quiet has come to an end!
