i went swimming around 2:00
and for the first time i had to share a lane
later there was a trip to the library
where i picked up Annie Dillard
the dog and walked the pond
and i made rosemary rhubarb simple syrup
with the last of the rhubarb from the garden
i just got done when there was a text
Ma! can you Skype?
going to bed with a full heart tonight
and counting the days until he is home
for a few weeks. . .
