Blueberries stain the floor on Mondays, but it's a new world

William Blake


So far, it's about 11:20 in the am and the refrigerator/freezer has already broken and been fixed by a very nice man; I've mopped the floor where the bag of blueberries fell out as I was emptying the freezer and stained it, two loads of laundry are in and out, Nina Simone is singing her song (thank you twisted knickers), and I've filled out some camp forms for Oliver. Summer is coming, I think, which is a good thing because I'm really tired of pumping these boys of mine up each morning to do their best. Nina Simone says it's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me, and I'm feeling good. I'm not sure I feel as good as Nina Simone because I need to do a whole lot of stuff, still, but dragonfly out in the sun you know what I know, but this old world is a new world --

i smiled at this post because i do remember so well on school days pumping up these children of mine, especially that boy of mine, to do his best, and the feeling that i could exhale, at least for a few minutes, when the first day of summer finally dawned.

sounds like a good day.
