growing pains

Sometimes you want to be in the mood
for a good time and instead all you want is
a cup of tea and a book of poetry.
Tonight was one of those nights.

I have been in a reading frenzy.
(writing too)

I cant seem to stop.
I love it.
Also I have drunk more milk in the past week then in the whole 6 months before.
Its like when I was a young girl with gangly, long legs. As they grew they would ache and I would drink milk and lay with them extended high into the air. Sometimes my mom would rub them.
It helped.
Maybe this is just another kind
of growing pains.


  1. As a mother of 3 young kids, I spend a lot of time rubbing legs in the middle of the night.

    I also love love love tea an poetry nights and days :) I am sitting here with my 6 year old listening to her recite Robert Louis Steveneson's My Shadow as I enjoy a steaming cuppa green tea.

  2. That sounds like a perfect evening :)
