Kayak lessons

birds at the feeder

Crystal and Buddy

Bath and play time
Drawing, painting, writing
getting ready for the "shower"

Early morning cool
Sitting by the window
Looking out at the
Fog blanket
Laying on the
Ripple free river.

Blue heron
Neck full extended
Peruses the depths
Searching for finned
Stark still vigilance-
Gangly, gawky, ugly beauty
Ready for flight
With the first unrecognized

Finally sated
Cats curl around
Each other on the chair.
Grandma & Crystal
Sleeping still,
While Hailey reads,
And Grandpa sits
Natures wonders
Through the window.

Dreams filled with
Yesterdays finds-
A new friend
From camp next door-
Swimming, fishing,
Crayfish catching.
Take a break for
Checkers with

Bedrock for dinner.
Chicken strips,
Homemade french-fries &
Pecan pie.
For Crystal and Grandpa:
Blueberry cheesecake soft serve.

I'm thinkin;
Summer vacation
Couldn't start better.

foolin', waitin' for supper
Old man and young buck
Intrigued by night sounds
New friends: Shane, Gracie, Crystal, Hailey drinking hot chocolate at dusk after water frolics.

Bedtime: Hailey, turn out the light please!

Love the way you misspell "thinking" - it really gives the speaker that lazy, carefree voice the poem requires.

And I love the occasional interesting word verification code - my favorite is still "krayspam." I use it as my username on my YouTube account!

Mine today is: xehuuu

For some reason, I have always thought that it would be great fun to learn how to kayak. I should ponder over this. Lovely photos you posted, Rel.

And I like the poem too.

You two are really enjoying having your granddaughters with you, aren't you? It shows in your poem and of course, the photos. What an amazing cloud sunset.

I love the photos and poem is great too. My fav photo is probably the one of the girls reading in bed (or one is reading and the other is wanting the light out - that is a familiar memory!) Another Lovely post.
