I am ALONE!!

I am all alone in my house, for the first time in, oh, three years or so. I am giddy with the possibilities. I am swirling from laundry, to sorting papers, to cleaning my desk, to changing my sheets to finding my favorite songs on iTunes and blasting the music as loud as I can, since NO ONE IS HERE TO COMPLAIN!!

So as not to waste this precious time, I am not going to stay here long, but I will say that if I get done early enough to get back here, I will be finally updating St. Paraskeva. I am taking July off from the weekly workshop, and may then, have time to catch up with myself.

My garden needs water and taming, and is also whispering to me today. So is my icon, of The Samaritan Woman at the Well. And I only have 4 hours or so to see what I can do.

Tomorrow my eldest turns 15 years old. All he wants is a homemade cake, and a quiet day. Think our life is hectic much, when the 15 year old begs for quiet?

Anyway, I'm off to revel in the solitude. Toodles!!

Where is everybody? I love it sometimes when I get that break when everyone has been unhappy and bored at home and they too are out just doing something they like and I can sit back and go ...Ah! Have fun!
