Today was the perfect day for catching up on rest. Not that I really needed to, but I pretty much did nothing, and it felt great. It was one of those gray, almost rainy days, with temperatures in the 40’s. Warm enough to let the fire in the wood stove go out for a while. Bruce called at 9 a.m. to say he was coming home on the 11:00 boat, a few hours earlier than originally planned. I decided that I would soak up my last hours of solitude by reading my book. I could head into the studio in the afternoon, right? Well, I didn’t. After lunch, both of us hit the couch for more reading and naps, happy to be together in our companionable silence. A late afternoon walk, a mushroom omelet for dinner, and a movie from Netflix made for the perfect end to a pretty easy day.
