I think I heard that this year
was supposed to be the year of the
100 year storms

I think I might pass out from the gorgeousness.

I once
on a trip just like this
spotted an owl
that scared the living daylights out of me
because something that big
just shouldn't fly.

Especially right at me.

Weird Dog

Or just evidence that even dogs
have stereotypes.
I thought all dogs loved these.
Mine doesn't even notice them.

Rock and a Hard place

I miss this place so much
Don't get me wrong
the bed was HARD
but the living was so soft and easy

Still wondering what kind of pumpkins
are going to come up for me.
Kind of figuring they will be about this size
at this rate of growth.

Best find ever

I'm a bit torn.
Not sure if the best find ever
was actually finding the Sponge Bob Easter basket
or finding Sponge Bob nestled into my side of the bed
on Easter morning last year.

The BEST Mac and Cheese

In the whole wide world was made by my grandmama
but since she ain't here anymore
This will always do in a pinch.

Wallet Candy

I made that placecard
before that was my last name
and remember smiling a huge smile
when I realized that by the time I sat down to that table
I would be all his.
