It’s infusion day. The fact that it takes several hours our of the “business” part of my day means I have to minimize down time surrounding it as much as I can. So… Infusions are in the town where I live now, and my infusion days are work from home.
It’s spring, which means on reasonably decent days, work from home means working from the front porch. I love the house that found us. This morning Peanut and I are (at 5:00 am) sitting on the porch, laptop, coffee and morning sounds to accompany work from home.
It was a lovely weekend that I didn’t have to tote my laptop everywhere I went. It rode in the trunk most of the weekend, and as a result this morning the battery was dead and all of my IM sessions were gone, but I didn’t have to carry it and I didn’t have to use it.
I feel less stressed, mentally, than I have in quite a while. I’m sure it won’t last long… but… for now, it is all good.
I took a five minute video of this morning to take with me to Brazil in May. I will take several more before I leave to take with me. It’s going to be a hard go live. I’m going to need a little piece of home (peace of home?) along with me.
The morning is so alive this morning. I’m not sure what I needed more, the weekend with my family (which I definitely did need) or the quiet stillness of this morning…. the watching the sun lighten the sky around the clouds… the dregs of yesterday settling into the bottom of my soul like so many spent coffee grounds… The birds and the wind-chimes and the crickets… morning quiet can be very loud!!!
