Scenes From Mother’s Day Weekend

Plus bonus haiku. Somebody stop me!

Bright garden bouquet
Strawberry mimosas fizz
And yes, I had one

Always happy to
receive D’s sweet handmade cards
True renaissance man

Kindle, sunglasses
Read The Handmaid’s Tale in one
day. You MUST read soon

Sneaking around the
house in said glasses like a
stealth secret agent

Nobody said I
wasn’t a little bizarre
now and again, yo

Treats at Ikea
No classic cone for Wito
Strange strawberry thing

Pic from babymoon
Only seven weeks until
baby girl arrives!

Hoping you all had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend! What did you do? Bonus points for haiku.

    All of Margaret Atwood’s books are fantastic. And the ones that seem strangely sci-fi ish (her 2 newer novels come to mind) are similar to the Handmaid’s Tale, in a way.

    Rode my new motorcycle
    Spoiled rotten, too

    Toddler dance party!

    Seattle is rad.
    “Scooter me that gum wrapper!”*
    Loving sunny spring.

    I am due in 3 weeks and have no brain cells to write a haiku.
    Good for you for having a mimosa. Man, do I miss drinking!
    I had a glass of wine on NYE, and I really do think it was the most delicious glass of wine EVER!

    And must write in a non-Haiku way-
    You look fantastic so close to delivery. Love the blue dress. I’m sure the next few weeks will seem long in waiting for your little girl-
    I enjoyed all the clothes and having a daughter, too. What an exciting time!
