i didn’t get as much rest as i planned. did you know that when one signs up for volunteer work they actually expect the person to show up when called? i just thought my name looked good on paper, but no, there’s work involved. that was my morning. i planned to get in the bed and read my book, but my room was not as tidy as i wanted (can’t read in a messy room) so i cleaned it, dusted and swept the floor. i made time to rest and read after i took the above photo.
kid: so what’s your picture of the day?
me: straws. i’m going to take a picture of straws.
kid: pause. you can do better than that.
me: no, i can’t.
