Taking a Break

It's been a hot summer in PA. I'm not a summer person. My favorite season is winter, and yes, I love the snow. I don't do well with heat and humidity. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older, or what. But, there is one thing about summer that I do enjoy - extended time with my husband.

For the past several years our sons have helped with a local Christian camp, and have been gone for about six weeks during the summer months. Although we miss them, it also is a great time to reconnect with my spouse. It allows us to see a small glimpse of life in the empty nest, and it looks pretty fine! :) We never seem to lack something to do, or somewhere to go, and also enjoy hanging out together at home.

I also enjoy the alone time throughout the day, while my husband is at work. I'm able to concentrate on projects that I don't have as much freedom to work on during the school year, especially since we are a homeschooling family. (One year left to go!) I never get bored being home. It's my favorite place to be.

The past weeks have been spent editing my novel. I'm almost half way through it. It's a long, tedious process, requiring a lot of time and concentration. Today I'm taking a break from it...not because I desire to, but other things are more pressing - like a writing lesson due tomorrow and a homeschool article due on Monday.

Some breaks are needed because other things need to be addressed. Other times, it's healthy to take a break and just relax. When's the last time you took a needed break?
