I peeked in on her. The tall four poster bed encircles the place where she sleeps. I can see dim light filtering in from the mini blinds at the head of the bed. A lump of blankets outline her body. She stirs and turns to her side, her breath soft and shallow. She is deep in sleep and I hesitate to wake her.
Today is the day we do the baking. We have invited Chloe to come and help with the pecan pies and the bread pudding. Chloe can't get here until after the midday hour so an early morning visit to the public library is on our menu of things to do today.
It's time for me to get on some clothes and wake her up. We have much planned for this day; the day before Thanksgiving, 2016!
