it is brian's last day of school
& for this house
summer is here!
plus the sun decided to go ahead & come to the party
she didn't rsvp
& she came late
& she brought a date (a mysterious mr. cloudy...must google him)
& she ate all of the good dip
but everyone cheered when she came in
i guess i will forgive her
(unlike the girl who came to my wedding
brought a date
didn't bring a gift
wait for it
caught the bouquet...
have i mentioned her before?
looks like my counselor will be getting that
new pair of flip flops she's been eyeing)
(was that haiku?
cause that was pretty good for fly-by poetry)
now that my friend is back in town
i'm looking forward to...
(oh you know you were going
right down that road with me...)
lane county fair
art & the vineyard
oregon state fair
(i have only been to one of the above listed
on a yearly basis
guess which one it is?
it's the one that is free to get into
& has giant men walking around wearing viking hats
& nothing else
that would make it the country fair
& i have only been to that one time...)
cute kids in swim suits
cute kids playing in the driveway
cute kids riding on bikes
cute kids at the park
cute kids in time out
(reality rules here at i wonder sometimes)
going to portland with my husband
reading in the back yard after the kids go to bed with my husband
ditching the kids
(ever so gently with a very capable highly trained watcher of children)
& going to dinner with my husband
celebrating our ten year anniversary with my husband
just hanging out with
(you guessed it)
one day a week
to go to my weight watchers meeting
& then to a sale or two
(well usually it ends up being clothes for the kids
but the hunt?
that's all for me
& then a little lunch with a book
& home just in time for naps
(i can't help it
it just flows through me...)
so thanks, miss sun
for gracing us with your presence
& warming our hearts
& making it possible for me to dress without layers
but next time could you bring a side dish or salad?
whatcha looking forward to this summer?
isn't that picture funny?
looks like miss m is welcoming miss summer with open arms
she's nice that way
unlike her mother...
