Monday Morning

// Peace and plenty here abide, smiling sweet on every side. Time doth softly, sweetly glide, when there's love at home //

Eliza woke up at 6:30. I cranked up the space heater in our room to 85 and then Eliza and I just smiled at each, and I kissed her 100 times. I counted. At 7:15 the older kids got up. Enzo practiced piano while Maria, Eliza, and I enjoyed some cuddle time together in my warm room. 7:50 I realized I was late. gave Enzo a banana made him some toast and got into my exercise clothes. 7:55 Chris come home from surfing and I left to take Enzo and his friend Xhuba to school on the bus. We arrived early. Enzo and I spend some time together talking in front of his classroom. I walked back from his school to my house while listening to an audio book. This morning ritual of taking Enzo to school on the bus and then walking home is one I hope to maintain.

Got home at 8:50. Called my mom to wish her a happy birthday, also asked about my new niece that was born yesterday - baby Hamaya. All is well.

9:00 I started work. Ate breakfast while I worked. Maria is off to preschool with Marley and Katie. By 9:30 The house is still; just me with my thoughts, the sounds of the key board, and  Christian and Eliza sleeping on the hammock.

Mornings like these renew my soul.
