Intermission Time

Suitcase

I’m going on vacation

Bags are packed, ready to go

Plans made, work is done

I’m going on vacation

Looking foward to fun

Expectations high, doubts are low

I’m going on vacation

Bags are packed, ready to go

Triolet

Isn’t it great when we can plan and take a vacation?

Whether is just an overnight stay, a few days away or just a day trip it’s an exciting time.

The planning and packing sometimes are better than the trip itself because of the adrenaline rush they bring into our life.

Something new awaits us!

We are leaving our comfort zone and venturing out into the unknown, anticipating good results!

It’s summer, time for vacations, pack up, go make memories that you can savor when the chilly winds of fall arrive in your life and winter knocks on your door with her icy fingers.

Even if everything doesn’t go as planned you will still be able to look back and be thankful that you took time to take a break and enjoy life!

Scent-A-Mental Memories

Aluminum Percolator

My childhood alarm clock was varied, often twas

Waking to the sound and smell of coffee perking.

Blurp, blurp, goes the old aluminum percolator,

A signal it was five am and mom was awake,

Bustling about the kitchen, making toast with jam.

I snuggle under the fresh smelling sheets and blankets

Knowing I have another hour before I hear

Dad’s voice calling,“ Leona! Time to get up!”

Those sounds, smells,and sights are now memories

Of carefree days in my Illinois country home.
