Perfectly Pure Silence

I am sitting at my kitchen table with my laptop fired up and a deliciously hot cup of coffee.  The dog is passed out on top of the AC vent, my cat is somewhere licking himself silly, and my son is away at sleep-over camp.  The only sound in my house is the tapping of my laptop keys as I wrote this post.  It is perfectly, purely silent.

Normally I love the noise, the flow of kids and pets streaming through my house.  In fact silence around here usually means something has gone horribly wrong.  But not today! Nope, I have waited 26 long days for this silence, and it is heavenly.  See I live here.


And I spend most of my nights doing this:



Or catching these:


Which means my friends and family (who I all adore) all come to visit and stay with me.  That turns my house into a pseudo one of these:

                                 BED & BREAKFAST
                                             You sleep and relax while
                                  I do all the work!








Which, unfortunately, means I had to make the beds, and the breakfast, and the lunch, and the dinner  . . .  Not any more.  Today, for the first time in over 3 weeks, I have no company.  A quick look at my calendar says I'm not expecting anymore until the end of August.  Translation -- my house, my coffee machine, my boat, and MY WRITING TIME are all mine!!!!  Well, for four weeks at least.

Hope you all are having a great and peaceful Summer!

    1. Because I ignore your calls. Just kidding of course. You don't count in my silence plan; your class are a welcome interruption.
