Nothing exciting, compost heap and not reading to the children.

1. We are woken by the police knocking on our door, but we had heard and seen nothing of the thing they are investigating. We decide that once the police have woken you up, you can expect no more excitement for the rest of the day.

2. The bottom of the compost heap is ready for sifting -- which is fortunate, as I don't think it will be easy to obtain compost for a while. I've got some seeds saved from last summer. I'll sow them as soon as the earth feels warm enough.

3. I am too tired to read to the children, so I offer to put an audiobook on. They choose The Secret Garden, which seems an old-fashioned, out-of-place choice, until they point out that they've heard about a new film version. It's nice to sit in the dark on the sofa and just listen.


  1. Seeing this post made my heart truly sing. Thank you.

    1. Thanks. I don't know if I'll be able to maintain the habit, but it feels like the right thing to do. Everyone else seems to be using their skills to help us get through, and this is a thing that I can do.

    2. Even one day, one post is enough to recollect the lovely spirit of your original project, which was always uplifting and beautiful (even if the feeling obligation made you feel not so great sometimes).
