Weekend Doings


+Watching the skies, cobwebs, kitten prowling the garden,
+Making vegetable soup, and while babysitting; watercolour landscapes and more pikelets
+Eating miso soup and sashimi, fresh figs, dark chocolate
+Drinking rose-infused watermelon, green tea, tall glasses of water
+Reading the weekend newspaper, old poems, Bleak House and the fading evidence of my mum's university notes twenty six years ago
+Surprising my resident pianist (mother) with a gingerbread baby grand
+Listening to squawking cockatoos (impromptu), tori amos (little earthquakes), the tallest man on earth (shallow grave), sufjan stevens (come on and feel the illinoise)
+Doodling musings in church, lecture times, and the last three illustrations of my book
+Thinking about love, autumn, weekend adventures, picking up unfinished projects, planting vegetable seeds
+Smiling at the sun, new faces, dear friends, the disordered state of my room
+Looking forward to studying, the week ahead, visiting Granny, sleeping in
+Thankful for my feet, endless colour, Grace, electric guitars...
