Much needed quiet. Few chores or errands; time to read for a first in ages. Even a bit of time for sorting and discarding, the goal for the year to lose one hundred pounds of stuff per occupant. Yesterday did not help since I gained a freezer and washer. But I got rid of a washer too, so that much balances. The freezer helps with economics, weight notwithstanding. Bulk prices are less expensive and I have enough hungry mouths to merit bulk purchases. By night, excitement and noise of children will return, but Iím enjoying the quiet, fleeting and temporary.
