Schools will probably be closed the rest of the week, many places of business are still closed (including my husbands) so things are quiet around here. I am thankful for this time, it's a gift to have our schedules stopped for a couple of days. Even without children in the home our lives are busy it's a different season, we have different responsibilities but life continues to be busy. I'm not complaining, just thankful for this time of quiet.
We have made good use of the time, I have cooked (soup beans with ham hock in the crock pot) went for a walk in the snow, something we all seemed compelled to do when it snows here, did some reading (I have already fallen behind on my reading plan for the year), worked on putting blog into book form and have been cleaning up my files in IPhoto. I take thousands of photos over the year, so I have been deleting and organizing making room for new ones during these quiet days. Come to think of it I should probably clean out my email boxes as well.
I desire to make the most of every opportunity even if the opportunity is simply be quiet and to stop
