Today is: testing out some new ink I bought yesterday, eating oatmeal, and getting ready to go meet someone who wants to pay me for my handwriting. This is my dream life; I don’t want to think about finals due dates.
So I got home early today and I just couldn’t sit inside. I was craving sunlight, literally craving it, so I sat on the porch. And decided to pull out a weed. And then five. And then all of them. And then I repotted my plant from Hannah. Now my knees are all sore and I have a blister but I’m just really happy about everything and I’m eating cake.
(BTW I looked up sunlight cravings and it’s really a thing. Get enough vitamin D, people.)
i’ve made so many duplicates of the key to my heart
and given them away
with no expiry or date of collection
and it is terrifying to realize that anyone could walk in
while i’m washing dishes
or folding laundry
or after 5 years
and just leave their car in the drive and their mud on the mat
without even knocking.
but the truth is
their hat is still on the rack and their mug on the sideboard,
because the house knew they would come back, even if you didn’t.
a little prelude to summer with the friendlies
