i stood in the rain for a little too long today. i have decided to stay indoors now. the cast iron pot simmers with garlic and lentils and crusty bread bakes in the oven, oh how i had promised myself no bread till france. my feet found the warmth of hand knitted socks and a lazy scarf is wrapped around my neck. it will just be one of the those days, recharge & quiet. unexpected lines will be read from well written novels of times past. the sounds of a foreign language will play on the viewing machine. tea cups will be poured and sipped and in between the animals will be well kept. today will be me feeling summer closing it's door and autumn singing it's way in.
