If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

On Living Without Men

What do I do when there are no men in the House of Dirt and Rocks? So far I have:
  • Spent an afternoon hanging out at the pool with girlfriends
  • Went out to dinner (2x) with girlfriends
  • Got a pedicure
  • Watched chick flicks late at night (I highly recommend this and this. This was not as good as I expected)
  • Read a lot of a really good book
  • Cleaned and organized the laundry room
  • Made very simple meals
  • Organized my books
It's been very peaceful.

I tried reading JABC, but couldn't get into it. Odd, really, because I am a Jane Austen fan. Might have to try the movie.

It seems I get a lot more done when my Husband is away! :)

That sounds absolutely divine. I'm envious of anyone with the opportunity to have leisurely spare time. Sigh.

As much as I miss my husband ~ I have to admit there are days when I love, love, love an empty house! Chic flicks are the best & eating cereal for dinner can't be beat! :)
