S landed this morning for what is a completely unplanned break sans any agenda whatsoever. Time and again we talk about how nice it is to be able to just sit together with friends and be at peace without even having to talk.
So that it exactly what we did this evening. Our noses buried in our respective books, me sprawled across a futon, she sitting upright, nursing a catch in her shoulder, looking up only to punctuate every few pages to exchange a passing thought, respond with a hmmm or and huh? or some other undecipherable grunt.
It’s been steadily hot, and the sky was blue all day, threatening hot days ahead. The sun set in flaming wispy pink fluffy trails painting the clear blue.
So we stepped out.
