This was a tough theme this week. Quiet. How do you capture quiet in a photo? Once everyone is in bed, my quiet time begins. It's usually not even that quiet since I have the TV on some nights (for company. Weird, I know.) But it's a few hours that are all mine to do what I please. Read, watch TV, catch-up on blogs and email, get lost in Pinterest...you name it. It's not always time spent on the couch. I sometimes do the dishes or iron (I know my husband is laughing because I really don't iron until he's pretty much out of shirts to wear) or tidy-up the family room a bit. But in the end it doesn't really matter what I'm doing, as long as I get some quiet time in at the end of my day.
Lately I've been heading upstairs to the guest bedroom to read. Something about being up there, in bed, in a quiet house, with a good book is just cozy to me. I can pretend that's it's my own little space even though there are piles of books and other items to give away and a few old toys that Max never plays with. It's the only bedroom in the house with a view of the street. I like to look out at the quiet little street below, knowing there are probably plenty of other moms out there enjoying their quiet time, as well. I enjoy this quiet, little space.
And I can't help but add this photo I took of Max yesterday. He can be pretty loud at times, but when he's got his favorite blanket, the thumb goes in his mouth and he suddenly becomes pretty quiet
