five things // free & gone

time is a slippery thing. plants that get watered on monday were watered on thursday.
the coffee went cold in mere minutes. the extra hour of sleep evaporated.
time can not be held tight.

waiting, waiting for a house with space for things like elbows and knees is getting hard.
i took it out on this little dollhouse by cleaning and scrubbing and packing away any little extras.
i had not planned to decorate this house for christmas again. the best laid plans of mice and men...

christmas for two is a tricky thing. two, i confess, is a couple, not yet a family.
any attempt at tradition is shadowed by the loss of old traditions.
the unearthing of the customary ornamentation seems forced.
perhaps i'll try out a few fairy lights. joy can often be found in tiny twinkly lights.
