there are five or six blog drafts stuffed in a folder on my desktop from the past 2 weeks; interrupted writing left for the trash bin. it has been a mad rush around here, but now...the decrescendo. it's friday! a take-it-slow day for us. today:
1. drink all of the coffee i made, slowly.
2. fold some laundry.
3. walks (only 80 degrees? how could we resist?)
4. fish for dinner.
5. resting. recovering. reading "east of eden", still.
what are YOU doing today?
a word on "east of eden": this longest book i've ever persisted through-no skipping chapters or paragraphs or looking up a summary on the web because i'm bored. the characters are so vivid & alive on the page & in my mind. there have been countless times this past week that i've wanted to reference cathy or samuel, but no one i know (jason, annabelle, violet) has read it, yet. but you...YOU SHOULD PICK IT UP!
