These days have been spent
giving my body time to recover, realizing just how much a sickness affected me,
foraying into the earth, watching seedlings burst forth,
catching up on cleaning and laundry and even using the clothesline,
being so, so grateful for instant Netflix episodes of The Office,
spending time in the kitchen, playing with rhubarb and preparing for a birthday,
kicking into super-bridal-shower-planning mode, envisioning and purchasing and creating,
dreaming of my own living space as friends move on to theirs,
and mentally preparing to go back to work tomorrow (after my days off that were meant for surgery, but got interrupted by sickness).
I'm liking these quiet, still days, for me, before schedules get busy and summer truly arrives.
