Yesterday was Delycia's day off from cooking, housework, laundry, and shopping (her second of seven), and it gave me pleasure to see her lounging around and enjoying some strongly deserved rest and peace. In the early afternoon, she fell asleep in the shade on the hammock, an open book resting on her chest, the leaves shaking above her very softly. I snuck out without waking her and shopped for groceries in the refreshing store (the day was sticky and stuffy) and came home and grilled chicken and broccoli and potatoes. I let it all cool down and we had a reviving meal on the deck as evening came on with breezes.
