Although it wasn’t by (my) design – I had the house to myself last night. But it’s a few quiet moments this morning – while the girls are sleeping upstairs that seems more relaxing to me.
Maybe it’s because I’m a little better rested this morning. Maybe it’s because I’m not in a flurry of text messages with the girls over who is where and when they are coming home….
Or maybe it’s because I tend to be a morning person (now).
There was a time when I was able to sleep well past 10 in the morning. Now sleeping to 830 is sleeping in for me. But that time has become some of the most productive of the day for me.
Whether I am out getting the weekly food shopping done, getting to the gym, heading out to the trails for a bike ride or a run – or simply catching up – getting a few quiet moments in the day isn’t so bad.
Despite having those moments last night – there is no way to gauge the productivity as I sat on the couch watching Chopped and hockey.
So, coffee at my side I get some writing done here and on a few work projects (even on a Sunday) and try to figure out how else to make use of a few quiet moments – before getting into the crux of the day.
