Home Alone and other ODDitites

It is Wednesday.

Darren took the day off. 

Darren took the day off and took the boys out this morning. 

I am sitting in my living room.  

Drinking Tim Hortons coffee.  Nibbling on a doughnut doughnuts.
(hee hee, and I didn't have to share)

It is quiet in my house.  I can hear the wind blowing outside.  

It is cold outside.  

It is warm inside my house.  

And it is quiet.

I love my boys but I soooo love this quiet.  It reminds me why I loved this house so much that I wanted to fill it with 4 tiny feet, 20 sticky fingers and lots and lots of toys.
(well the toy part just comes with the 4 tiny feet and the 20 sticky fingers)

I've been reading blogs since 10 o'clock this morning. 
 (how totally awesomely lazy am I?)

I am going to sit and read my current book, Under The Dome by Stephen King until my boys come home.
 (because it is begging to be read)

Nicholas, our cat is actually laying right above me on top of the couch cushion. 

He is normally not there.  He is normally upstairs.  
He likes the quiet too.

The boys will be home by 2 o'clock.
I will miss them by then.

I think Nicholas has the right idea though.  

Too bad I ate all that sugar and drank all that coffee!?!

I've been waiting and waiting for Under the Dome to come in on hold here at the library for me. Is it good so far?
