My brother’s back in Vermont, and my parents are helping to run an event out on Cape Cod. This leaves me at home in the wilderness of Connecticut to defend home base with no chance of reinforcements for a few days, with just enough food to last me until such time.
Ok, maybe it’s not that dramatic, but I do have the house to myself for a few days. I had a very nice and relaxing day at home. I got out and biked around for a bit, to get spiritual direction and apply for a few jobs. But the best part was getting to relax at home. It was so weird being home and hearing silence. It was relaxing and very enjoyable being home alone for the day. Exactly what I needed.
