solitude

Some days I don't feel like doing much of anything.  It has taken some years of mothering to be okay with that.  And so I take an extra amount of time responding to emails, I serve leftovers for lunch, and add extra lounge time in my afternoon, with Caroline close at hand, flipping through books. I know for a fact I couldn't and wouldn't attempt the things in my life if I didn't spend some mornings sitting on the porch, quietly drifting off in my own thoughts, totally oblivious of my kids boredom, tearing out grass and making grass soup.  I like these moments when I have little to say to them.  It gives me more to say the next day.

How do you let go of the "everyday" for moments of solitude?
