And still counting (7618-7663)

chocolate quinoa cake
birthday wishes

pumpkin pie with Lanie
birthday crashers singing a song
the sound of southbound geese
good friends
an apple slicer

and a big blue mug
their delight in giving
rainy days
wood to stack

His love in their silence

kind words and reminders
10 pounds and six inches gone
sweet potatoes
a gifted basket for a photo gig

a lesson in temptation
gluten-free biscuits with fig jam
naps on rainy days
a big mug of warmth
morning face time with Julie

Thursday through Sunday
read alouds with Erin
his favorite dried fruit snacks, found
zuppa toscana
flowers in a vase on the counter

socks on my feet
leaves changing
reasons for thank you notes
David on the phone
colorful mums around the patio

how she plays outside in the rain
Satsuma smells in the school room
a purple blanket after eight
these last weeks with a twelve-year-old
an unexpected visit from my dad and Linda

belated blankets
a hug with him
clothes shopping with Lanie
ice cream in a little dish
an old, cold house

a visit to a favorite library
lots of good memories
the library couches for a family selfie
