Today me and my mum planned to take it easy. After we got up, mum got the washing machine spinning, and the dryer machine drying. She made a caramel slice and went to the market to buy carrots, onions, lemons, mandarins, feijoas and lots of apples. She read her book, did a sudoku or two, folded the clean laundry, put away more summer clothes, cleaned out the fridge, did some dishes, cooked some tea and sat down on the couch. We put some bread out in the garden for the birdies, trimmed some trees, picked up some weeds and tidied up some other plants.
This evening, the heater is on, the candles are flickering, I am snoozing on the winter rug on the other couch, mum is watching the end of Michael Clayton on the DVR, and has the Iron Lady to watch for movie night. The bed will be made with fresh sheets, the quilts layered on the bed, cushions will be piled up, mums book will be placed beside her pillow, and the heater will be turned on in an hour to heat the room.
