President's Day - a photo essay

This is my 'To Do' pile.

Ready to be folded. It was clean once, but now I spy a pair of pants with a belt still attached. So it is a dynamic, multipurpose pile!

This is what has kept me from that pile.

Words in Scrivener may look pretty, but believe me, this is a pile in and of itself.

This has been a very welcome wintry distraction and a reminder of what a good story can feel like. Icy and warm at the same time.

This is what love looks like on a plate and in a cup with a spot of cream. This is one of the 500 kindnesses my husband performed between the hour of 6 am and now, with grace and sprinkled with cinnamon.

This very moment, my son is sketching downstairs.

My daughter and her friend are up a tree.

"To Do" does not need to be "Right Now." This morning, "To Do" can continue to wait.

I love these flashes of your world, Amy. I love that you are choosing the good work over the laundry. :) Happy writing!
