Just by mid-afternoon
On a day slowed down by thick heat
I have -
Made our bed
Swept our floors
Cleaned our toilet & sink
Washed our dishes from last night's snacks
from lunch (leftovers from last night's dinner that I made)
Finished (begun yesterday) and strained a batch of chicken broth
For a future meal on some other day slowed down
By thick heat
Washed that pot, that strainer.
Made our evening meal early, before the day got hotter, thicker
Washed the utensils and cleaned the counter and sink for the umpteenth time today
On a day slowed down by thick heat.
Pretty good for a ghost.
