Today was cool with a brisk wind, the tail of a hurricane brushing past us. The cooler weather suits me, I can walk the fields in jeans, the wind taking away the heat of the walking. The boys ran freely, jumping on a fallen tree and gathering flowers to be stuffed in pockets and given as a gift to the big oak tree (in exchange for wishes).
A cosy afternoon at home, the house smelling of granola, my arm tired from whipping a double batch of mayonnaise; movies for the boys snuggled on the sofa, some daddy made popcorn a tasty treat for all. Mummy is dreaming of her next sewing project, perhaps I’ll get started today. Perhaps not.
I think of my house, with it’s windows at last and hope it is safe and cosy. A good day.
