For another few minutes it will be quiet. I probably should have taken a nap myself, but sometimes it is better to go without one rather than be awakened in the middle. One small child has gone home, two are sleeping, and one is tossing and turning on the couch. The phone has rung, the dog has barked, and Grandma has gone out to visit Uncle Tim with Aunt Rachel. Quiet is really mostly elusive, even on gray days when curling up under a blanket sounds like the very best thing to do.

Dinner is made and waiting for dinner time. We're having Curly Lasagna made with rotini which isn't really "lasagna" at all. It still contains pasta and all the other lasagna ingredients, but there is not much layering required. I put it all into my stoneware bowl and sprinkle the top with Parmesan and mozzarella. It's kid friendly and the grands are staying for supper.


The day is done. The house is quiet. Supper has been served and the dishes are washed. The children, obviously, have gone home, and Grandma has returned from her outing to visit Tim. It's time to curl up on the couch and watch a movie. Tonight it's "David Copperfield". Think I'll go watch too.

PS. The photos are not from today. I caught them two weeks ago as a child and I waited for the school bus.


  1. We're having that same meal Wednesday night. :) And Kathy G had it over the weekend! haha...everyone calls it something different, too. It's still yummy!

    I'm glad you're finding some quiet!

    1. I'm catching it in snippets. Sometimes that's the best one can do. Tomorrow afternoon promises to be noisier than today's. There's a half day of school.

  2. It must be Pasta Time. Since Don can't have white flour, sugar, rice or pasta for three months to see about his borderline diabetes, I've been using whole wheat pasta...not too bad. Hope you have a good day!

  3. Good luck with some "quiet" today Martha♥
