Free Friday

Last night Princess was not feeling great..catching her cousins cold , I think.
She woke up at 4 am and went back to sleep about 6:30 until I woke her up
for our breakfast play date with our play group friends at McDonalds.
It was so nice to sit and chat with other Moms while our kids played together.
It was incredibly peaceful too! No fighting...no injuries..really nice.
I was set to head home in time for Little Man, when Farmer Dad called to let me know
he wasn't coming.Spending his Dad's day off with him.
This meant we could slow down a bit and not feel rushed on the drive home.
I even got to head over to the library to drop off some books and pick up some that I had on hold.
I have been busy planning the next two months, and have many books to check out and hopefully use
in my "lessons".My heads all a buzz!!
After running another errand, I made a pizza for lunch and we hung out for a bit before
Farmer Dad dropped her off at my sis's and he went to jam for a bit with the guys.
I had the house to myself and did not do one productive thing.OK, it was only about an hour that she was
gone, but I just sat and relaxed and flipped through some books and had a cup of tea.
No laundry,and no cleaning.
I will regret it tomorrow, but right now it feels good to have quiet "non-working" time.
Speaking of books, we picked up a huge stack from a fellow freecycler last night,
and there are some nice ones in there. I will re-freecycle any we aren't interested in.
I'll try to get a picture up later, but blogger is not letting me right now.

Sorry to hear that Princess is feeling sick. I am glad you got some time to yourself.

Z is taking a two hour class this week and yesterday my husband asked if I was going to come home while she was in class and I said "Ehhh, then I would end up cleaning the house."

About an hour later he called me "i thought you were coming home." he said. I was like " I said that if I came home I would only end up cleaning. I"m out shopping!'

I was only at Goodwill but I got four shirts and a jacket. :)

Oh I love those scattered hours of pure relaxation. They're what keep a mummy sane. Good for you, not cleaning the house!

I hope dear Princess is feeling better now.

I hope P is feeling better by now. Your day sounds lovely. Princess is such a great girl. I long for the day when my kids will play nicely with others while I chat with other moms. :)

Have a great weekend. I'm going to try and post something on my blog this weekend. I am so out of the blogging loop.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your pictures!

Right now, I don't think I can do anything but cuddle under a blanket with my book. Sometimes not doing what needs to be done needs to be done!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
