cats are sprawled in the sun, one in each room. and a couple on the porch. i'm cleaning the floors and getting ready to start making easter dinner. my parents will be here soon. naomi is playing basketball with tom in the yard. and she just came running in to go to the bathroom. i told her to be careful on the wet kitchen floor. she bounced through and stopped in the dining room and looked at me. "it smells so good in here". she was staring, trying to figure out what she was smelling, why it was familiar and why it made her happy. and then...."it smells like POOL. it's the pool..." she was hopelessly happy at being taken to the pool with the scent of my watered down bleach concoction i use on the kitchen floor.
