just call me Oprah

Today, being kind to myself means:

sleeping in, tuckered out from our ongoing Star Wars marathon.

transplanting the peace lily, the leeks, basil, and oregano, and watering the peppers and tomatoes as soon as I get up.

stretching.

running for ten minutes straight, then stopping before my shin pain escalates. I am not up for another three months of hobbling.

packing lentil curry and grapes to eat at work.

doing the laundry before I run out of clothes entirely.

listening to Great Big Sea
