For the first time in almost fourteen (14!) years I have seven (7!) hours a day with no children at home.
I knew once September rolled along things would be different. I knew/know something new was/is awaiting me. I’m not sure yet what it is but I have that feeling that doors are about to fly open.
And I’m ready.
With my new found thirty-five hours a week I’ve decided I need to have some sort of daily schedule to keep myself productive and to also carve out some time for creative activities. Doing what I love – just because I love it. I wrote about it earlier in the week here.
Friday is all about Creating. Laundry can wait. Cleaning the kitchen can wait. Office work can wait. Shopping can wait. Today, I create.
And I’m ready.
Today I will write. I will pull out and “dust off” a novel I wrote ten years ago. I will format it so it is neat and pretty. I will read it (for the first time in 8 years) and I will send it to a friend for her to read.
I am ready.
Ready for something new.
Keep up with all things new and follow me on bloglovin’

I feel excitement, newness just reading this. Praying along with you….for the new found hours, for today’s creativity and for the novel. So good to meet you via Five Minute Friday.
What an exciting new time for you! Praying the best for your family during this time of change:)
I love that you set aside time in the week specifically for creating.!
What a great idea. Protect that time, like tilling and watering seeds in soil, and see what God will grow in it!
Congrats! You get to reimagine your day.
