Long Weekend

I was cold all day as I went about
making, drinking coffee
showering Fritz
scrubbing, vacuuming, dusting
grocery shopping
peeling, chopping, cooking dinner
setting the table for 8.

I was warm for the first time all day when
my family showed up
wine flowed
dinner was served
conversation ignited
harvest pie and tea
laughter and hugs
and warm goodbyes.

Now, eyelids drooping
body heavy
dog sleeping
fireworks snapping
me blogging
day closing
And it was full.

Best of all, there is still one more day left in this long weekend to enjoy fill.
Thank you Queen Victoria!

  1. Oh my goodness. You're lucky. I'd have loved a long weekend right about "This work-week too shall pass." :)


I've made it easier to comment - no nasty word verification. So let me know you dropped by.
