Christmas Day


(ice cream in the espresso)


Twelve minutes in the car before Cedar falls asleep for a nap that will be way too short 
Eleven geese flying in formation overhead honking seemingly in my ear
Ten glorious minutes of hot shower this morning
Nine minutes parked by the side of the road watching Venus and the moon in the evening sky
Eight new board books handed down to us by Cedar's cousin 
Seven times the puppy has to go outside
Six loads of laundry
Five hawks spotted on the way to my aunt's house for Italian Wedding Soup
Four red cardinals amongst the bracken
Three quinoa blueberry pancakes for breakfast
Two cups of Mother's Milk tea
And one walk alone at dusk with two dogs

I hope there is peace in your home tonight.
