It's 5:32 p.m. My children are playing together quietly in the basement. I have wheat rolls rising on the counter, and a hearty vegetable soup simmering on the stove. The fireplace is keeping us warm on this cold, wet, windy day. All of the homework is done, and most of the dishes are done.
I'm impressed with myself. I will sit back now, and enjoy this rare moment when all is well in my house. Who knows how long it might last??
