I am feeling tired and so do not have the brain power to write a "real" entry. So, here are the elements of a rainy but happy Friday spent with Maya & Naima, and later, on my own:
A breakfast of a soft boiled egg, a decaf americano, oatmeal with strawberries, conversations with and about toddlers. Roaming a nursery, picking a few plants, wishing I could bring home more. A what was short but felt long bus ride while reading a new book. Tidying up my home, hanging my new green babies in their predestined places, fixing a nice dinner, half-watching half-not-watching a movie, editing photos, devouring the other half of my salted chocolate caramel bar, listening to Damien Jurado's St. Bartlett, lighting my new campfire candle and happily finding that it really does smell like a campfire, settling into bed to write this. Feeling sleepier and sleepier, but anticipating a night out with some dear, old friends. Thinking now, I must make some earl grey tea.
It's been a very lovely day.
