Sunday Evening   6 comments

After dropping hubby off at the airport, I met my nieces Melissa and  Michelle and Michelle’s husband Ryan at Disneyland for dinner.  Oh, the joys of having an annual pass to Disneyland!  So after a wonderful day with hubby, here was our fun evening at Disneyland:


Dinner at Cafe Orleans – Highly recommend this place – especially for the Beignets!


More walking and talking and you know, we didn’t even go on any rides! We had a magical evening and now I need to go and rest my feet!

I am participating in Poetry Friday over at The Simple and the Ordinary today. I linked to a previous post to share a poem I wrote about coffee.
If you have any poems to share, head on over and share them with the rest of us.

Stopping by Starbucks on a Monday Evening

By Lana Giacumakis


Whose latte is this? I think I know.

He’s over reading the paper though.

He did not hear the barista call

To collect his frothy cup of joe.


My little habit must seem queer

To those without a Starbucks near.

Between the beans and how they’re ground,

The richest flavor does appear.


The barista knows just what to make.

Rarely is there a mistake.

The other customers would agree,

Starbucks coffee is hard to fake.


The first sip lovely, dark and deep.

But, I have appointments to keep.

And hours to go before I’ll sleep.

And hours to go before I’ll sleep.


Now, hop on over to the Simple and the Ordinary for more Poetry and if you have poetry to share, please do!
