Got up,
fed the cat,
made breakfast for Bill and the boys,
saw Bill off to work,
drove the boys to school,
ran errands.

Home for lunch,
did dishes,
did laundry,
stumbled across a mystery,
sought advice from the late Dimity Westwood,
aka Aunt Dimity,
who communicates from beyond the grave by writing in a blue leather-bound journal,
solved mystery,
picked the boys up from school,
made dinner,
enjoyed a quiet evening at home,
went to bed.

Send a silent thank-you to Aunt Dimity,
made a mental list of things to do tomorrow,
and fell asleep,
tired but content.

All in all,
a pretty good day.
