#SOL21 Day 21 of 31: Unexpected Saturday (the good kind)

A rare Saturday with no real plans

Coffee for Mom and cuddles for you

Boys went to camp and we lolled around

Chilly, brisk walk

Unicorn tag

You made me lunch – pb&j

Spread out a picnic blanket

On this beautiful first day of spring.

Your blond hair glistened in the sun

Your giggle filled me with joy

The dog’s ears perked up to beg

You chattered away how you made lunch

You scootered to the playground and I followed behind

With masks in my pocket in case

On this beautiful first day of spring.

When we got there you donned yours without a complaint

And skipped freely to the swings

I witnessed your surprise when you saw a classmate

Play dates seem a thing of the past

I know how you’ve yearned to play with a friend

The two of you raced around

A half hour passed, then one and then two

We had no other plans and so we stayed

Far longer than I normally would

On this beautiful first day of spring.

We ended the day with dinner and sundaes

And cuddled up for a movie you chose

We can’t have these days everyday

But what a wonderful, unexpected Saturday it was

And I loved sharing it with you

On this beautiful first day of spring.

  1. Such a joyful Slice of new spring! Unicorn tag is a new one for me. Blonde hair glistening in the sun, giggles, dog’s ears perking – such clear images; they stir my heart. Every one a treasure.
