ThrowBack Thursday – 1 year ago

Last July we went out to the Hatter & Hare to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. Then today I learned they’ve already closed their doors less than a year from their grand opening.

No more tea service
Hatter and Hare close their doors
Quiet as church mouse

Fall down rabbit hole
Everything turned upside
We’re all mad here

Extended Scoring Season Finally Wraps Up

Hello to all my readers! Long time with no post from me, sorry. I didn’t keep up with #NaPoWriMo this year very well either. I started my seasonal employment again back in April, and in the past two years scoring wrapped up a couple days after the Memorial Day holiday. They received more tests to score this year so I worked all the way through yesterday. Not that I’m complaining, it does mean bringing home more money with my seasonal gig, but I did lose motivation on the poetry front.

And in other big news, Gretchen graduated from high school on May 18th. She also completed the ACE program at EMCC on May 11th.

School years disappear
Tell me how she became a
High school graduate

Earn a diploma
Four years go by in a flash
So long to high school

I was so preoccupied with work and day to day housework, I wasn’t even trying to write haiku for the #haikuchallenge on twitter. My response to the challenge on Thursday was the first tweet I sent out in over a month! But now that work is complete for yet another year, I’m hoping I’ll get back into writing more poetry.
