I find my life at home this week to be nicely calmed, but holding the 'it's coming' feeling I get on a still summer day when you just know a ripping thunderstorm is coming to clear up the humidity.
Yesterday was a normalish Monday, today we're back at regular school (much to the girls' chagrin), I'm doing laundry and cooking pumpkin to freeze for pies and other lovelies, I'm planning Christmas baking and going over the kids' wish lists.
On that note: A makes me laugh sometimes with her very thorough approach to things. Her Christmas list was neatly printed, each item categorized in a careful five-level system of grading from "really really want" to "kind of want", then folded origami-style into a self-containing envelope. After each name-brand toy, a miniature "TM" was carefully inscribed. Gotta make sure those trademarks are accounted for. Very cute, very her.
Originally next week was to be a quiet one here on the recording front, but we are slotting in days to record 'Silence Broken' for single release. Guess that means I have more to do this week.
But right now I'm just looking out my window and remembering how much I enjoy watching the snow fall. There is planning in the lull, but it's still a peaceful place when I look for those moments.
