Today I walked around downtown. I looked at some of my favorite tiny old houses. I walked by the place where my grandfather’s workshop used to be. I bought some pastries to take home to the aunts. They were very good. The lizard only ate part of hers because she had a restless night and slept most of the day.
In the evening another aunt came by with homemade donuts. They were still warm so we sat outside and ate them although we’d already had pastries. I deadheaded the roses, cut the grapevines back. It was a pretty summer day and I felt very happy to be here.
