The exercise:

Write two haiku about: sing-alongs.

Blame Max. And maybe music class, I suppose. Toss in daycare and StrongStart while I'm at it.

Had a productive day. Chopped and hauled wood after dropping Max off at daycare this morning. Then came home and did some cleaning and organizing in the kitchen with Kat, where we finally finished the last cupboard.

After lunch I dusted off the rototiller and brought it to the garden (because the tractor is still at the garage getting ready for the season). I tilled up the area we plan on growing our vegetables in this year, then sowed the cover crops I never got around to sowing in the fall. I also tilled between our rows of garlic, which are coming up nicely already.

And now I wait to welcome the next seven days or so of grey clouds, rain, and me bitching about the weather.

Mine:

John's singing my Lord,
Kumbaya. Please make him stop
my Lord, Kumbaya...

I don't know the words
but if I keep moving my
lips no one will know

For a change it's me who's behind on commenting! Still doing twelve-hours-in-the-office at the moment so I don't always get a chance to do more than see what you've posted yourself some days. You sound busy too though especially since you've dusted off the rototiller now!
I think I like your second haiku better this week, but that's because I don't like Kumbaya :)

Sing-alongs
We're all singing from
the same hymn-sheet. The boss thinks
he's Jesus Christ though....

------
Summer camp-fire songs
Would sound better if the bears
Weren't eating the kids.

Greg - yes, well, you'll never be as behind as me. So there :P

Also: you work too much. And I hope things settle down for you at work sooner than later.

Good lord, the scene and audio your second haiku put in my head. Terrible. And great. Terribly great? Sure.
