Haiku in October

Celebrate our love
Frolic late into the night
Rainy Saturday

Since our anniversary fell on a Wednesday, Shawn and I did not go out to dinner until the weekend. I’ve been wanting to check out Barrio Queen in Avondale for a while and we finally had a good excuse. Then we went over to a friend’s house for a combined birthday and anniversary celebration.

This week one of my haiku is included in the Haiku Pea podcast – S5E20 In Depth. Thanks to Patricia for her continued hard work, sharing her love and knowledge of haiku.

My loyal readers will notice I wrote about the palo verde again. I do love how every April the green tree blooms yellow flowers of course the clean up is not so fun.

Good morning and welcome to October. Tomorrow Shawn and I will be celebrating 26 years. The traditional gift for your 26th anniversary is pictures. So I’ve been posting photos of us throughout the years. Our wedding 1996; Our 10th anniversary 2006; Our 13th anniversary in San Diego 2009; Our 15th anniversary in New Mexico 2011; and last year’s big 25th anniversary.
