Alone

Daughter went to work with her daddy this morning. I find myself alone in the house. Instead of the usual thankfulness for the chance to do the things "I want to do"...
I find that I'm a bit lonely. The morning has a yellow-tone. Rust is more noticeable than usual.
And the weeds can be heard whispering...
A foggy view
A childhood toy, waiting to be reclaimed
Blooming garden flowers and ripening tomatoes

Teresa, Maybe you are feeling lonely because your children are out of the house. I used to think that a lot when my girls went to college. The afghan below is beautiful. Christmas is closer than we think. I think fall makes me kind of sad because a lot of things are dying at this time of the year. I know the "Blowout" will be a blast but am not going to be able to make it this year.
Have a great time and do a blog about it????

Judy, you might be right. I'm not sure. I think I was having a problem with having had my day all planned out in black and white (homeschooling, laundry, cooking for the monthly Bunco game, etc.) and to have her gone just threw a monkey wrench in the works. It meant no schooling here (although I did send her books with her to work on before and after her shopping spree with her grandparents. That's why she left with hubby in the morning.) But I did find myself thinking ALOT about what I will do with myself after BOTH kids are grown and moved out. I think I will have to volunteer or get a part-time job or go back to school or something!

That day, I cleaned the entire front porch, crocheted the rest of a doll leg and started an arm, and did a lot of reading. By the time Bunco rolled around, I was so used to the quiet that I couldn't bring myself to talk as much as usual! LOL!

I'm like you, I think I want some time to myself, and then when I get it, I don't know what to do with myself! :-) Sounds like you got a lot done.

Weeding...now that's something I really hate to do and I tackle it in little dibs and dabs!
