SWEET SATURDAY

Today was the beginning of a long memorial weekend and what better way to kick start it by sleeping in. The highlight of the day was barbecuing in the beautiful weather, just the two of us. On the menu – skewers of chicken and sweet peppers, steak slices with a tangy wine marinade, buttered asparagus, cucumber skewers, salmon, and garlic buns.

And these two piggies were stuffed.

TWENTY SIXTH APRIL

Because it was that time of the year again,

I wore the dress you snail mailed me from far, far away.

And got a surprise with a meal cooked from scratch.

Not forgetting, the kind wishes of many and sweet gestures of some.

It’s about time I started getting used to being 23.
