Since thrihyrne and I share only one day each week when neither of us works, our Saturdays tend to be our Day of Rest. When I mentally list the things we did yesterday the individual items don’t seem extraordinary, but the day certainly was. We slept in, had coffee-and-Internet, went grocery shopping, made tacos, watched an episode of “Elementary,” and played some online Boggle. I also taught T what she needed to know to crochet edging around the collar and armholes of a knitting project. At twilight, we went on a spontaneous walk around the neighborhood, because the air was so fine and the sky so beautiful they had to be savored.
It was fabulous spring day in Portland, and even though we spent the entire day together, at the end of it, I didn’t want to fall asleep because then it would be over. Life is good.
