Quiet Afternoon Thoughts

It’s nice to spend an afternoon working quietly at home, with the sun coming through my hundred-year-old catsup bottle (yes!—or in fact a hundred and twelve or so by now) and my small Tiffany stained glass pane; a wren popping in and out of the honeysuckle hedge outside; Earl Grey white tea brewing in the glazed green pot; and no one interrupting me but myself, as random thoughts occur and take me somewhere far away.

I’m trying to figure out what to have for dinner, too, and whether I have the energy to stuff an eggplant with lamb and sage and feta.  I say no, but will probably be sorry later.
