First day that house is quiet.
First day I am alone in the house.
Dog is sleeping after a long walk with a friend in the snow.
Groceries can wait.
Work at the library doesn't start until after supper.
I've got coffee and a warm sweater with me.
My office is clean, no longer Santa's workshop.
Tree is picked over, only the lights are left to take off.
I have a new idea. I'm going to write all afternoon.
Alone. Quiet. Ready.
