it was a quiet sunday afternoon...
the boy re-charging for more mischief with a nap, and esther playing peacefully.
this means that i too was puttering, enjoying the quietude.
now, i am used to overhearing the girl's narratives and operettas as she
manipulates her little characters...
polly pockets, little people, paper dolls...you know.
very sweet and entertaining little dramas.
but today's episode was even more enchanting then usual;
at some point of the play, she opened the the cutlery drawer to audition cast members.
i wandered into the kitchen for tea, and found a whole new family there,
sporting fancy duds and 'dos.
