Puttering...



Does anyone else do that?  Just putter around the house sometimes?


I've been doing a lot of that this week.  And it's been nice.

I've cleaned out and organized two hall closets.  Gotten all of the laundry folded while watching English murder mysteries.  Pulled some weeds out of our front flower bed (there's many more to pull though, I assure you), picked veggies from our neighbors' garden (with permission), made myself some *chick* food (gazpacho!), and have even done some cleaning out and organizing in our learning room.

Did I mention that my hubby took the kiddos on a brief trip this week and the house has been very quiet?

Yeah.  That's why I feel like puttering.

While that list above may *sound* like work, it truly wasn't.  It was all done at my own leisure, at a relaxed pace, whenever I chose to do it.

I hardly ever get the chance to do whatever I want whenever I want, so that has been kind of nice.  Well, very nice, actually.

But not as nice as having my family at home.  Having them here makes our house a home.

oh my gosh, I'm totally puttering today! Hubby is working, kids are at Grandma's and I have the quiet house to myself! Plan on doing some cleaning rooms but for now just puttering on the internet! LOL
