the best thing?
sitting out here, reading.
I love 5 (upstairs) and her parents. I love it when there’s 5, and 4 from across the street and other random 3s and 4s and 5s tearing through the yard or playing on the swings and the climb-y things.
but I really really love just sitting at this table
or in whatever small beach chair or lawn chair is available
and just and only reading
maybe snoozing a tiny little bit
but mostly just reading
almost everything, sometimes, and often almost everything else.
maddening, except for when I can make up something else all together for recreational purposes, only. of course.
if people would use their inside voices inside, we might not have to speak over one another and then maybe we wouldn’t not quite hear as many things. facts gone missing; missed utterances. utter misses.
