I don't want to see people or to be social today. I want to do my garden work and then sit comfortably and knit, or read. No making nice-nice with other humans, except Geoffrey, but since he's not here today, I want the world to go away and just leave me alone. I also really want a chocolate malt, but on the theory you don’t get everything you want, I opt for privacy instead of the ice cream confection and consequently ignore the neighbor’s holiday celebration as best I can, thankful the unstable weather provides an excuse for staying indoors.
