See you in July

June is driving me
mad. So I'll see you after
the Fourth of July.

Power Outages in a Grand Scheme to Prevent Haikuesdays

What should have happened: Yesterday I went home with the intention of making a great Haikuesday update, finishing my Luminaria for Belindas Relay For Life, watching the Season Finale of Glee and starting on a special project for Theresa.

What actually happened was this: Came home to no lights, no computers, no television, no internets, NO POWER. Sooooo we went to a bar and watched a baseball game.

When we came home at 10:30 we found the power on, but because I had to finish my luminaria, it took precedence over all else. I finished that at 12:30, went to bed, and woke up this morning to realize I had missed another Haikuesday.

My Conclusion: The heavens are conspiring against my Haikuesdays. Obviously they realize the power my little haikus generate throughout the world. Probably just one of my Haikus read aloud (maybe the one about Mr. Rhino) could topple the Pyramids of Egypt.

I have one thing to say to the Heavens.


This haiku topples
historic landmarks just
zombies gobble brains

Haikunesday 6-2-2010

Just as I promised
Though I'm a little bit late
It's Haikuin' Time

"It's Haiku-nes-day!"
Does NOT have quite the ring of
"Happy Haikuesday!"

So as you can tell, I've been a busy little bee lately, and that's pretty much the only reason I would have delayed my weekly Haikuesday post. But with a very fun trip to Minneapolis this past weekend, and with choir practice, choir performances, baseball games, and work, I've been having trouble just remembering where I need to be and what day it is.

Oh Minnesota
Land of Rachel and Molly
And fun times galore

Rally your glasses
Nerd and Lumberjack want YOU
To cheer for The Saints!

NEED - rolling shoe rack,
magnetic knife strip and the
rest of IKEA

Iowa is nice
But DAMN it takes a long time
from Top to Bottom

Things are looking a bit brighter for the weekend, and although I'll be pretty busy for the next few weeks, they will be a good busy! I have a Treblemaker's (the small group from the Women's Chorus) performance on Sunday, then I have wedding things to accomplish for my friend Theresa. (She's getting married on the 19th!) But for now, I'm headed to bed to sleep on my new IKEA goose down pillow. zzzzzzzz

Delayed Transmission

An Apology

The Holiday of Yesterday
Has thrown my schedule into the loo.
I keep thinking its
the month of May
So I'm pushing back my day of Haiku.

So, dear reader, please don't feel betrayed
if Haikuesday you cannot find
For it has only been a bit delayed
To ease my frazzled mind.

On Wednesday of this week only
We'll have Haikus galore
And though Haikuesnesday sounds pretty homely
It's just something we'll have to ignore.
