let's play house

i love being domestic,
on evenings when it's raining and the house smells like sauteed onions and pecans,
and it's chilly and autumn outside.

i feel like wearing aprons all day
and baking every recipe i have that uses pumpkin, cloves, or nutmeg.
i feel like making blankets
and painting
and any other craft i can dream up.

and i feel like throwing parties,
ones with six different kinds of cake:
red velvet
rainbow sprinkle

and four different soups

and we'd all wear cardigans and argyle and after dinner we'd sit around and drink hot chocolate and talk about books.
