Counting Down

It’s almost the weekend right? Seriously this Daylight Savings Time thing has really thrown me for a loop, but now it’s time to look forward to the weekend. I’ve got plans, lots of lovely plans. Plans that include yoga, shopping for sandals and stuff like that.

The best part is that I get to see my wonderful friend, Ginger, who’s coming to visit us. I’ll spend time with her, her son and her boyfriend. I’m sure we’ll go see an indie movie, hang out at a Half Price Books and laugh until our stomachs hurt. Doesn’t that sound great?

I wish everyone a happy weekend.

For today’s poetry lines, I chose a verse for Claire. She’s just become an aunt I thought congratulations were in order. Go tell her congratulations too!

Auntie’s Skirts from Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Whenever Auntie moves around,
Her dresses make a curious sound,
They trail behind her up the floor,
And trundle after through the door.

Robert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Nov. 13, 1850. Perhaps best known for Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Stevenson’s works earned him great popularity because of his clear and careful style and his extraordinary power as a storyteller.
