quiet night

I think I need some kind of refreshing / re-energising experience.  Today was the kind of day that all of us have – not at all bad, but tiring and kind of draining.  I’m currently sitting in the backyard, hiding behind the clothes hoist, trying to get a quiet moment while children run around, plundering the house.  The fish are dying again (something I can’t diagnose, but we’re doing everything we can).  There’s nowhere quiet to sit.  I’m not in a reading mood.  And I’m aware of the need to be doing things I’m not.  sigh.  Maybe a quiet night will help.
