Happy Birthday Week

Sushi and Cake for Monday
Day 1 of my birthday week
Just for me

It’s my happy birth week!
Is there such a thing? 
Oh yeah, I say, to you
Nothing wrong with celebrating
Celebrating my survival
Despite the challenges of parenting

Sometimes, I wonder
Should I help, should I not?
With their adulting, that is
That may be quite a lot?

They are able to work
And weak, they are not
They can earn like their mom
Pay their bills (most of them)
Not delay and what not

Things like reminding them to get up
To make it to work
Not be tardy or miss 
Their ride and miss work

Or make sure to make
College education a priority
So, they don’t end up on the mercy
To live on charity
Or be a burden to me
Or to our society


  1. happy birth week to you! I like to over-celebrate, if there is such a thing. enjoy! I liked your poem, too.

Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Birthday Month

Here are some random photos I picked From my collection that makes me think The smiles and laughs shared With the people who care I share my birthday month with some loved ones Some close, some far With distance or heart In my thoughts they are present Sometimes that's all that matter The experience, tastes, and feelings matter too Simple things like easter bombs "cocoa" A manicure with massage And more sweet happy birthday cakes A workout in different virtual destinations I cannot go there for real but virtually I can New Zealand, Spain, the Pacific Islands All in one day Imagined or virtual They can bring joy
