(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Today will be a day of quiet.

I’m still sick, though not delirious anymore. There’s a thick layer of fog outside, and the kids woke up much too early for my poor body.

Today will be a day of quiet.

I will curl up with Dwell, Real Simple, and Martha’s holiday issue (don’t laugh, I really like it). And a steaming hot cup of tea.

I will listen to Carla Bruni.

I will serve up the veggie soup I made in a haze yesterday afternoon.

I will do puzzlemania with the kids.

I might even play Monopoly even though B regularly whoops our butts.

I won’t play Chutes and Ladders. I won’t.
