Saturday was a day to stretch out.
None of us talked much.
Because working together was enough.
And because sometimes the work was intense.
Mothers were nursing in public and nobody cared.
Children were playing with wires, wood, and big rubber pillows without fear of losing an eye, splinters, or rugburn.
(Some adults too.)
We counted our chickens before they hatched.
Searched for needles in a haystack.
(Did you see the peacock?)
And posed for our Christmas card photo to no avail because I do weird things with my mouth when smiling for a camera.
