A new phase of life…

I know – a trite picture – but it IS pretty

For the first time in my life, nobody outside of my own head is telling me when and where I have to be in the mornings – no teacher, no boss, no school bus to get to on time, no small children to get me moving.  It’s all up to me.  It feels quite strange and I haven’t yet settled into a routine.

Of course, summers have been like this for the last few years.  During the summer, it gets light out so early, it hasn’t been an issue.  But now, with the shorter days, I find myself sleeping later than I ever have.  Several times, I’ve told myself I should just get up when my husband does.  But he is up at 5:30 am and out of the house by 10 to 6.  That seems a bit extreme.

With my daughter sleeping and my mother quietly starting her day in her room downstairs, the house stays quiet and it feels like it is still early morning, even when it isn’t.  I love the quiet and I’m reluctant to break the peace.  I know a new rhythm is coming; I just haven’t found it yet.

    When I retired from teaching it took me a year before I was able to establish my new routine. Enjoy the journey in finding yours.
