Today is Saturday.
Three weeks from today, I will be waking to a day of people
streaming down the driveway
loading up their purchases of the pots that I fill with
little green babies
Today I will work,
from the moment I leave this desk
to the stars blink their watching eyes at me.
I will work with only 5 interruptions from the kids every 10 minutes
because their father is home
so I will send them away to him for the reinstitution of the necessary
snacks to keep them alive.
But I am not alone in my endeavors.
There is always somebody around to make sure I keep moving...
His eyes are not always open,
because he had a long night and dawning day of rat-catching,
bird bounty hunting,
and generally terrorizing the local small life
"You have a rough life, Moon,
I am glad I am not smaller than you.
But really, Moon, I do wish you wouldn't mess with the frogs.
You could spare them for Levi's sake.
It was just a suggestion, Kitty.
Yes, I do have work to do.
Thanks for the reminder."
to you and all of yours.
