      Yes, we really did have such snow, Thursday, then Friday morning, changing to rain, a bit of hail, lovely fog, then sunshine! By the time Ingrid and I arrived home, only tiny patches remained, but lots of puddles! 
       Highlights
One student studying poetry for her unit gave the class a lesson in slam poetry, assigned pairs to practice poems she hand selected, then set the challenge for each group to write and get ready to perform next week. Did they take their classmate's assignment seriously? Oh, yes!

Ingrid celebrated her sixth birthday Tuesday. Noodles was the restaurant of choice. Mac 'n Cheese the dinner. Her party with many in her class is this afternoon. Is she excited? Oh, yes!

I've written a poem/haiku or related every day this month. Am I proud of keeping on? Oh, yes!

There were hurdles to overcome this week, conflicts to resolve, tough conversations to have. Did I enjoy it? Oh, no. Did the days improve? Oh, yes!

Am I happy it's Saturday? Oh, yes!

Have a terrific weekend everyone!

Hurrah It's Poetry Friday


          Robyn Hood Black is hosting Poetry Friday this week. Visit her and all the others who link up at Life on the Deckle Edge. Today Robyn has Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong visiting her site, and we've all been invited to the party!



          Still writing haiku and haiku-related poems. Mother Nature has rewarded me with a variety of topics, mostly spring flowers, insects, birds, and YES, snow! As I'm typing, the report says :  heavy snow/rain mix, through Friday.

Thursday - Weather Change

           For this wonderful month of April, Poetry month, I've made the goal to write haiku and haiku-related poems. It's been rewarding to write something new every day.

       A cold front is on its way, with snow and rain in the mix. We need the moisture, but what a change, after seventies for a while. Back to cleaning off the car!

Wednesday-Lots Happening

          One of the poets doing something special this month is Laura Shovan, of AuthorAmok. She's putting on party clothes this month and inviting others to write and share poetry connected in some way to clothing, and today is my day to visit. Come on over to see what I'm writing about pockets! Thanks to Laura for inviting me!
