Celebrating Plus SOL17 - 11/31


         SOLC17 11/31 Thanks for the March Slice of Life challenge with the Two Writing Teachers community for Day Eleven of Thirty-One of the Slice of Life Challenge in March.  Thank you, Stacey, Beth, Deb, Betsy, Lanny, Kathleen, Lisa, and Melanie.   
         Today I also celebrate with Ruth Ayres and others at Discover Play Build. It's a good way to end the week sharing our celebrations.
    
   Each Day Is Waiting



Monday I played catch-up -
dust and vacuum repeat.
On Tuesday read more blog posts,
loved Imogene’s Museum treat.

Wednesday was a stay-at-home,
spied a daffodil on my walk.
Thursday, hours at bookstore
and book club’s evening talk.

Friday poetry, Ingrid, park -
a swirl that filled my plate.
Today I love the week’s end,
Saturday to celebrate.

Sunday starts another set -
seven days full of smiles.
That’s why I pen this tiny rhyme
to consider past days a while.

  2. Isn't retirement wonderful. Spending time as you like, when you like and yet some structure. So much to celebrate!

    1. Thanks, Diane. I do not like cleaning very much, and do think of the "repeat" when I do it!

    1. Yes, I try hard to listen to some music when I dust. Nothing gets very dusty, so it's a challenge to tell myself that it's needed! Thanks, Bob!

  9. Love how you recount the week and set out for the next week with contemplation. The images also extend the writing. Wish I could get you to come to my house and dust:)

  14. Good week. So many things to celebrate. I can't imagine your celebrations without grandkids and books. This time "spied a daffodil on my walk" caught my attention.

    1. Thanks, Terje, and that daffodil, still only one, is still looking great!

  15. recapping the week -- not just a good template for a slice (saving the link in that collection though) but sets you up for the next week -- scaffolding connecting one week too another.
