hung out with four of the six-pack tonight
creating with clay
home spa nail painting
hide and seek
a TV movie
rounding up the cats
building a giant sleep nest
no one is at all tired yet
the perfect time to bake brownies
and eat them as a late night snack
with some ice cream on top
their parents will never know.

headed off on a family fun river raft float trip
not real relaxing as expected

one sister visiting
one sister gone too soon
only brother on his way
grandchildren in tow
we visited the place
where we had grown up.
it looked much the same
yet felt somehow not.
much like us.
“there is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged
to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
when driving with grandie f
he asked me
what a ‘party line’ was.
he said it was mentioned
in an article he was reading
and it advised him to
‘ask a grandma or google’
if he needed an explanation.
I think that was a brilliant suggestion
that between the two sources
we have most everything covered.
“as I learned from growing up, you don’t mess with your grandmother.”
