How did I get here … sitting in front of my computer?
Hands hovering over the keyboard as I stare at the screen.
It all began when making my bed.
I noticed the plants on the windowsill needed water.
So, I headed to the kitchen where a stack of dirty dishes waited.
I filled the sink with soapy water and left to look for stragglers.
Finding none, an empty plastic pot on the table grabbed my attention.
I had meant to plant seeds of sage the day before but got distracted.
Soil placed in the pot, I needed a clip to place on top of the bag.
Enroute to the stationary drawer at my desk, I had a thought for my story.
I sat at the computer to write it down before I forgot it.
So, here I sit with an unmade bed, an open bag of soil, no seeds in my pot, and dirty dishes in my sink.
Well, at least I’m writing. =)
