Green Tea & Sun.
I was not feeling my best today. My bones ached, my limbs felt as though they were foreign, not mine and my head was somewhere else. As Audrey slept my husband came in from outside and smiled, he took my hand and lead me to the backyard. A picnic blanket, a pillow and a cup of green tea with ginger and lime were waiting. I lay in the winters sun, I sipped my tea and my dog Oscar lay beside me. I could hear Luke busying himself in the yard, the chickens pottered around me, I thought of our child sleeping peacefully inside and with each breath of the cool air I slowly forgot about the turmoils that had been within me.
