~~ Morning ~~
Good morning, quiet house. Good morning beautiful, glowing light.
Yoga, scripture, coffee, a little time spent watching the children cuddle each other in their sleep.
~~ Noon ~~
A new knitting project. Yarn from a friend. There are so many moments during the homeschool hours when The Boy Wonder will become distracted if I wander off to accomplish something while he practices his cursive or works on his math, but I will go mad if forced to sit still while the to-do list continues to grow. Enter knitting. The movement of the needles hypnotizes Princess Hazelnut, and the steady doing - the creating - fills this downtime with a sense of purpose. Besides, I can always use another market bag.
~~ Night ~~
The kids are asleep. The dishes are done. The work is as complete as it is going to get for now. There is this pause at the beginning and the end of each day, this time to marvel at the peacefulness that bookends these days of pure chaos and madness. Now we rest.
