I spent a quiet day at home trying to prepare for work next week.
My once empty refrigerator is now full, my suitcase unpacked and put away.
Every year I bring a little something home with me.
This year I chose the small dish.
The year before it was the wooden crochet hooks.
Two years ago, a favorite serving spoon.
The bundle of pine needles
remind me of my family's back porch.
