I finished up all my writing work for the morning, then went to the grocery store and moseyed (and I mean moseyed taking my sweet time) down each aisle. Not only did I have the whole cart to myself, I had no need to hurry back home. I gladly checked my email on my phone while I got in the slowest checkout line ever. I didn't mind.
I went to Starbucks. Made a ginormous pot of tortilla soup, like, I had to buy extra containers to store it all. Listened to Pandora (Phil Wickham radio) and then after a while was all wait a second and I turned the music off and just soaked in the quiet for hours. I mopped the floors. Cleaned a bathroom. Straightened stuff. Did some laundry, dreamed of a stacked washer dryer.
It doesn't seem like much for all that time, but I have lofty goals for next Monday. I'm talking clearing out the closets and finally organizing all the kids' outgrown clothes and figuring out what they need for fall. I might never return.
Oh, so, speaking of work. Here's some worth-while things I've written and would love for you to check out, share, do with what you want...
