A Winter afternoon break

I had a story to write, and another to edit.

A friend wanted a letter of recommendation.

I needed to renew my driver's license.

But the sun was shining after three days of rain.

The first snow of the season was melting.

A break would be good for the soul.

Mickey, the Border Collie, didn't mind.

Even if it meant rough-going through the snow, the puddles, the mud.

When she was finished, she was content to rest.

And, I was content to go back to work.
