Our books are overdue now by 20 cents but, you know what, that’s okay. When we arrived, the library had closed, but we hardly noticed. Right next to it was a magical wonderland of sparkling trees. We only had one pair of gloves, so we each wore one on our outside hand and put our inside hands together in R’s coat pocket. No one had ventured out of their homes just yet, so it was just me and R….strolling along….circling trees and ponds. We caught up on how each other’s week went. He had been out of town physically for his job and I had been out town mentally because of my reading. It was peaceful, yet awakening. Good start to the weekend.
We stopped for a few seconds to watch Santa fish, while a white swan honked at me for interrupting their early evening nap.
