Yesterday was an awfully rainy and blustery day, reminiscent of the one that sent Owl to live in Piglet’s house. When I woke up there was no milk and I had to go out and get some; then I went to the Y for the first time, but I couldn’t think what to do other than track, so I did that for a mile. (Today, my legs ache, which means I should do it more often.)
Later, my body kept wishing it was back in bed and my mind wouldn’t co-operate in sympathy. But after a while suddenly things came together beautifully. In the evening Fin and Alex went instead, but when Fin and Alex left Rio in the childcare room which was always free before, the childcare people sent her away to look for them because apparently there’d been a charge of $1/hr imposed. Rio turned up crying. I am not impressed.
And I also wrote Fin a triolet:
As the drawing shall tell
and the paper responds,
some enchantment just fell,
as the drawing shall tell…
in a paper for spell
with your pencils as wands,
as the drawing shall tell
and the paper responds.
Fin made chilli for dinner. (I’ve always seen chilli in the UK and chili in the US. Isn’t it a Spanish word? Is one of them more like the Spanish?)
Someone told me I should record my day posts and post the audio file along with the text post. Maybe I should.
There will be a post about last weekend soon.
