Il dolce far niete | The sweetness of doing nothing

“Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.” - Regina Brett


Each year, right before school starts, I spend a day doing nothing but reading, watching movies, napping, and other equally idle pursuits. My loafing partner is always ready to join in, but this year she’s a little under the weather. She should feel better once the antibiotics do their thing, but in the meantime, we’ll savor today’s snuggles.
