My Week So Far

huge tissue mountain
4 and one half boxes high
that's a lot of snot

progress has been made
my daughter wore jeans today
yay for OT!

my kitchen was clean
for a few moments today
then the kids came home

(Note, this is written from Comet's perspective, not mine.)
treasure in the grass
it's stinky gross and rotten
i must roll in it!

Weekend Haiku

mama and daddy
flying from feeder to nest
babies need to eat

son went to scout camp
girls had fun afternoon out
sick son home early

shoes by the road side
the question I ask myself
where are they going?

Catching Up....

come here ladybugs
my big maple tree has scale
free dinner for all!

fifth grade band concert
my short son played bells in back
i could still hear him!

life has been busy
i'm behind in my haiku
i have lots to write!

I could see the top of his head during the looks something like this.....

Lovely weekends!


saturday morning
savoring the peacefulness
then the kids find me


using Google Earth
reviewing the days travels
it wasn't that flat.

Fruit, protein and dessert all at the same time! That's called being efficient!

my lunch was ice cream
with peanuts and banana
fruit makes it healthy!

Early summer in my back yard!

I love my backyard
a suburban oasis
weird neighbors and all
(full disclosure: I'm probably the 
weirdest person in the neighborhood.)

mowing doesn't stop
the grass and weeds keep growing
why do I bother?

i'm one with the grass
the squirrels have forgotten
mwah ha ha ha ha

Sunday and Monday. Here's to old friends and sweet preteen sons.

even after years,
a few moments together
dissolves the distance.

sitting on my lap
edging towards puberty
but for now, a boy.

Four Days at Once! Woo Hoo! Enjoy!

Uneventful Day
Can be relaxing or dull
Depends on my mood.

family road trip
sunny pleasant afternoon
spent with each other

kids at the dentist
good checkup and free toothbrush
braces in future.

the world is not flat
it is most certainly round
why are people dumb?
(for the record this had very little to do with the events of my actual day, I just thought it was funny.)

Kids, kids, kids today!


guns and sword from sticks
a child's imagination
great battles are fought


allergies are mean
they make my little boy sick
war against the pollen!

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Bad, bad doggies!

empty cookie box
peanut butter in bedroom
dog's ill-gotten gains....

Saturday, May 15, 2010

I admit I have a problem.....but at least it makes me productive!

cleaning the windows
removing leaf dams from eaves
houses take much work!

This morning's:

This is horrible!
A problem that must be solved!
Out of Diet Coke....

Thanks Patsy!! :)

Spring walk in the woods
Friend and dogs for company
Makes for sleepy dogs!

Yesterday's and Today's

Preteen melting down
Homework to much to bear
Mommy love will help.

Rain Rain Go Away
Come again another Day
Wow! That's a haiku!

You won't like me when I'm angry...

Grumpy PMS
Heads get bitten off at will.  
I need chocolate.

3 Days Worth....

I've had them written, I just didn't get a chance to post!
So here is Friday's - I'd missed some yoga classes and was SOOO happy to get back to it.

Meditative State
my third eye looks back at me
does it ever blink?

Saturday:  We went to Albany to the Tulip Festival

Tulip Festival
OK Go Free in Concert
It was a FUN day!

And finally for Mother's Day:

Thank-you to my Mom
I was a twit, now I know...
my kids are like me.

I love a good cuddle on a cool spring day!

Dog on either side.
Their warmth against my body.
Devoted cuddlers!

Revenge is Sweet

Angry headless stems.
Dandelions last revenge
on heartless mower.

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

My dogs won't fetch either....

Lots of tennis balls
floating in the local pond.
Someone's dog won't fetch.

Monday, May 3, 2010

I got lots done today!

Busy, busy day
I was productive at last!
Took me long enough!

The Best Seat in the House

Lawn chair in the sun,
Move, and Zinger steals your spot.
Hey! That was my seat!

Relaxing Dogs

Distinguished Canine
In the grass under the tree
Resting or watching?

Friday, April 30, 2010

They aren't weeds! They're native plants and grasses!

My chem-free lawn blooms
with native plants and grasses.
Wildflowers RULE!

Oops! Running out of gas...

Don't get in my way!
Gas is low in my car's tank...
I didn't make it.

The Stomach Bug

Oldest kid shared germs
Parents nauseas, sick in bed.
Will youngest be next?

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Tuesdays at Panera...

Tuesday Coffee Klatch
Unemployment made new friends
Misfortune's fortune.

Starting a year of a haiku about my life!

Haiku Poetry
Succinct words big ideas
My favorite kind
