Silence is golden.

It's 8.55am and the house is quiet, I mean really quiet and apart from a sleeping cat I am the only occupant. It is heavenly!!! After 3 weeks holiday I have this morning delivered my 3 darlings to school without too many objections or problems. The 'horsey' one can't find her favorite school jumper but as it is her own fault for having a room that is likely to be condemmed by the health department shortly for being a health risk I have no sympathy!! I have a list to attack and realistically there is no way I will even reach half way in ticking it off. I intend to dust and vacuum, cook a wholesome yummy dinner, finish a baby quilt (needing to be delivered tomorrow), do some bookwork, read the paper (before it is old news ) and rewatch last nights episode of Desperate Housewives which I slept through!!! ( I have learnt to tape as I watch shows as unfortunately this often happens). I am meeting an old work friend for coffee this afternoon before school pick up and the finish of this glorious day!!!
Totally off the subject and just quickly... I have admitted before that my tv viewing taste is considered by some to be dubious at best but I am just wondering does anyone else watch 'Private Practice'?????? We had the season finale the week before last and I can not get it out of my mind. Is it any further ahead in the States (think this is the finish of season 2) and can anyone tell me if it all turns out okay in the end??? or not?? This Thursday is the season finale of Greys Anatomy, looking like I will need a comfort block of chocolate and a huge box of tissues to watch it. This week is also the final week of Masterchef, our family has loved it and its been nice having a show that we all watch together. Not sure who I'm hoping will win .....
Anyway coffee and the newspaper along with putting on another load of laundry is calling!!

Hi Lise,
How lovely to have the peace and quiet. Since my husband retired 2 years ago those days are few and very far between. Enjoy.

I`m having a quiet morning by myself too. I love it, feels like having the whole world all by myself.
Will have a lot of these mornings during the summer because I have to drive my daughter to work. She have to be there by 6 am.
