change in the weather

While it certainly felt chilly today (and I felt like the world’s worst mother when the boys had to huddle in a filthy doorway on Milwaukee Avenue waiting for the bus because they were too cold in their t-shirts and shorts), I’m really enjoying the fact that it’s 60 degrees outside and I shall soon be going to bed. There are few things more enjoyable in the world than snuggling up under a quilt and freshly laundered sheets and feeling a cool breeze coming in from outside while reading and then drifting off to sleep. I have lots of work to do, but for once I’ll be pushing it aside to relish the moment, a simple pleasure I deserve to have indulged given all that’s been going on.
