summer christmas.

Standard

is it one of the hottest days of summer?

is it time for our annual

christmas in july/august celebration?

absolutely.

with long-time friends

turkey dinner

wine

christmas cookies

 stories

and 

odds and ends re-gifts to each other

that we’re highly likely

to re-gift to someone else at a later date

no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.

‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”

you say potato, i say patriot.

Standard

“you have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks and soldiers who file by the white house in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy and the flies die from happiness. you may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”

-erma bombeck

 

happy  birthday u.s.a!

celebracion cinco de mayo.

Standard

we came in empty handed and left with quite a colorful array of characters

such a fun day

spent in southwest detroit

shopping at the ‘honeybee market’

with our spanish teachers

for the pinatas

(one of my favorite things)

to take back to school

for our cinco de mayo celebrations.

“the celebration… you cannot practice it or anything.

it’s a moment when the excitement of your goal

makes you react to the moment.”

-peter bondra

blue sunbeams.

Standard

and michigan takes the win in the final second.

moving on to the sweet sixteen.

 the tears and the joy flow freely.

go blue.

‘tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.’
