Between work and Christmas and one child's birthday and all the errands that must be done before next Wednesday, I have been feeling overwhelmed. Like, a-fast-train-is-approaching-and-I-am-tied-to-the- tracks overwhelmed. Thankfully, I have had some much-needed time alone this afternoon. I've been cleaning and wrapping and getting ready for oldest daughter's return from sunny California.
I walked into the living room this afternoon to find the most gorgeous light. So, I took a breather, snapped a few pics, and now I'm sitting at my computer, listening to the dryer hum. Everyone will descend in a matter of minutes. But sometimes when I'm grumpy, all it takes is just some alone time.
I hope you manage a few minutes of quiet today.
