SWEET TEA

Friday Night Live!

Princess went to bed at 8:20.

Mister went to bed at 9:00.

Heck, even Boudxy is sound asleep!


I got out of the shower and yelled into the snoozing house,
"I'm clean! I'm clean!
Over, under, and in-between"
Yes, I say that every night, and every night Princess and Mister react as though they've just heard me say it for the first time.  They laugh and pretend I'm quite the comedian, which is one of the reasons I love them so!  Tonight my little shout of humor fell on sleeping ears.  Ah well, tomorrow I'll say it twice!


Actually it's kind of nice.
Everyone is snugged in and accounted for and I get some "me" time.
I've donned clean pj's and fuzzy socks.
"Beauty" rules, while the Beasts are asleep!"

Another quiet winter's night.

I know how you feel!! I LOVE it when Louis Dean goes to bed and I can stay up ALONE and play my word games (with YOU!) or read or just BE!!
Enjoy yourself! It won't last long!!

PS I was just thinking about you today and wondering how you're holding up!

When I read"everyone tucked in and accounted for"...my gosh, that is exactly how I would feel when my family was safe and warm at home. I remember getting up early on Saturday mornings and drinking my coffee by the window where I could smell the neighbor's lilacs..my daughters would be sleeping in and I would feel so content. xoxo,Susie

My quiet me time is early in the morning when everyone is still sleeping. I get up, come downstairs, make a cup of coffee and read.......bliss. The rest of the time there are always bodies around. Enjoy while it lasts.
