Heading home

Packing kids and back packs into the car. Cold wind, fingers felt frozen. Erin talks and talks and talks. Open door. Close door. Open door and into seat. Car idles and I look around. Emptied parking spaces as families head home for a holiday break. I think on the wrapping up of the day, and while there wasn't an urgency to leave, there was no lingering this afternoon.

I pull out of the space and look at the heathered sky. I count the armloads of wood I'll bring in before I'm even parked in my driveway.
