Music drifted through the house and it pulled her out of the haze which had been swirling in her head. She had been filling note cards and organizing delivery boxes in an almost rotary fashion. She stepped into the main room and was almost confused to see him sitting by the fireplace playing mellow tunes on a saxophone. He had his own list and boxes waiting for him, but right now his music was echoing her hazy mood.
She patted his shoulder as she walked past him and headed to the window, saying “November is over”
He stopped playing and laughed with a bit of a huff. “December has just begun,” he replied.
Outside it was snowing. She saw foxes playing in a tree stump and pawing in the fresh snow. They were a contrast to the kittens who played on their post, nice and warm inside the house. She leaned on the window and sighed. A groan slipped out of her mouth. She whined, “There’s so much to do.”
She loved her work, and she loved her life, but she was feeling strain creeping up on her.
Turning from the window she saw that he had put the instrument away and was sitting, slouched, on a trunk that was serving as his seat. She went over to join him and the pair of them leaned back to each other, hands hanging down at their sides.
“We have a lot to do.” he admitted, a hint of weariness in his voice.
“Yeah,” she returned. “Here’s to another month.”
