I'm also loving the serenade we're getting as our daughter rehearses Holst's "The Planets" and Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 on trombone.
And I'm loving that my son, the chemical engineering / biochemistry undergrad, is devouring his new coffee-table glossy image book of the periodic table of the elements as if it were a video game guide.
And I'm loving this quiet, relaxing evening on the couch with my husband, watching a movie as the house settles down into the dark, quiet evening.
There's a lot to be said for the empty calendar and obligation-free time immediately after the holiday rush.
