My girl is off exploring new horizons and experiences.
It's been a bit quieter during my day here... and to be honest I'm a bit lost.
I've been watching the clock.... and I'm looking forward to the weekend already.
I think it's another lesson in balance for me.
I've decided in my "lostness" to this week just allow myself to while my days away....but despite my permission humorously it seems I can only while my days away with something to do.
So a planned trip was made, to the one person I know with all the goods and impressive stores of bits and pieces....enough to keep anyone who needs to while some time away very very busy - Mum.
I came home with all I needed to satisfy some serious crochet craving that, probably quite ridiculously, has been haunting me most of the Summer.
A simple refresher and I'm on my way today busily ch'ing, sc'ing, dc'ing, counting and then sometimes pulling it all back out again....but I still watch the clock of course.
And then soon tonight the silence will be gone. The girl will again fill the house with life and spirit and wildness, and Mama will dish out food and baths and stories and cuddles.... light candles and burn oils to imbue calm and peaceful dreams.
Then maybe just like last night I will then wearily look for sleep to find sweet gifts gently and thoughtfully placed by my bed.....reminding me why I'm watching the clock and trying to while these first new days away......
