Well, it’s late and I’m exhausted after a long day. I hope you’ve all been enjoying the poetry! Most of them were written on our last camping trip. We spent two hours waiting for our boat to get fixed and, after my phone battery died, I whipped out my handy little purse notebook and started writing. (If I’d have had The Lokana Chronicles with me, I’d have started revising, but that didn’t work out.)
Anyway, I’ve got loads to tell when I’m less tired and more coherent, so for tonight, I’ll just leave you with this. It hit 105° today at work, and in Des Moines, apparently it hit 108°. I heard that was a record, but I don’t know for sure.
What I do know for sure is that when it’s this flippin’ hot out, there’s only one thought that runs through my mind, and it goes like this:
Hope you enjoyed that little blast from the past! Now then, let’s get this weekend started! It’s a three-day weekend – what do you have going on? Big plans? Little plans? Plans of unusual size? Bubbles has a football game tomorrow morning but beyond that, we still have no plans. It’s highly unusual, and also quite lovely.
So from my family to yours, have a happy Labor Day! And sleep in on Monday! 😛

Tengo mucho amigos en la escuela.
You know, I actually really miss school. I got to see my friends everyday and take awesome classes – what’s not to love about that? I love learning. I’d be a professional student if I could afford it. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
Today is for sleeping, then more sleeping, and if that tires me out I’ll have a nap.
Mmm, sleeping. I like sleeping, but my lovely mid-morning lie-in was interrupted by Bubbles’ flag football game. And then Cricket and Thumper seemed to think they needed breakfast. And when I tried to take a nap on the couch this afternoon, Seymour decided that we should wake the boys up from their nap, so I was lucky to get ten minutes’ shut-eye while he watched football.
Oh, well, there’s always tomorrow. And Monday, which is much improved this week by virtue of being a holiday. 🙂
I was only fantasising. I do remember sleep – vaguely.
I’m just thankful my kids all sleep through the night now. Maybe one day, in a few years or so, I’ll find out what it’s like to have kids who sleep all morning, too – I remember one teenage boy of my acquaintance who could sleep all day.
That was me. I woke up in 74 and I don’t think I’ve slept since.
Then you’re overdue for a nice, long nap!
One day I hope.
