Very quiet

You spend all Summer shooing them out from underfoot and then suddenly poof, they're gone. I have naked cupcakes ready for decorating when they return. A little gesture to sweeten the first day back at school.

Well, I had to do something. I'll be used to it by next week, but today it's just too quiet round here.

I was always so glad to see the last day of a school year and saddened on the first day--it was such a joy having the time to do things with my children and sad when I had to let them go. I know this is part of life but they're only with you such a short amount of time when all is said and done.

I love your descripton of your cupcakes--naked--make me laugh. I'm sure they were pretty when all gussied up and yummy to boot.

I know just how you feel, it's kind of eerie how quiet it is.

Cupcakes can fix just about anything, can't they?

And that hug looks super boy-ish to me --

my kids don't go back till next week and now I'm getting the point where I can't wait! They are getting antsy and underfoot but I'm sure I'll feel just the same as you when they are gone!

It's been odd here too, I tidied up this morning and there was nobody to mess it up again!

I, like you, are particularly fond of my boys when they aren't actually here!

Megan said...

Too quiet? Did you ever think you would say such a thing...

I hope they come home soon. To give their Mum a hug and to clothe those poor naked cupcake. A naked cupcake is a sad cupcake.

Oh I know that feeling. We had favourite supper tonight! Even the prospect of days sewing isn't enough for me at the moment

You're very welcome to move into my kitchen, if you can find room amongst the washing, ironing and debris of daily life!
