Rambling thoughts on a Saturday

Finally got my triathlon time - 1:17:53.  I'm really proud as I was expecting it would take me about 1 hour 30 minutes. So now I'll need to work on trying to improve this time for next year.

Tomorrow is Caitlyn's birthday party.  She is so excited and right now I'm busy getting her cake sorted.  The party will be the same as last year because it worked well. Will share photos after the party tomorrow :-)

As I sat here making lots of teddies we'll be using for Caitlyn's cake I had quite a few thoughts running through my mind.  Just some random thoughts really:


Knocking on the door
With gentle steps
Across the floor
A risk perhaps
What were the odds?
But it was there
A flickering light
Beneath the eyes
Not quite sure
Of the what and the why
But no regrets
No looking back
It's constant
At least for now
Hope
That it might last
Afraid it might not
This moment
That rests in my heart

I'll be adding this to my other blog along with my other attempts because I thought it is good to have a space where I keep them all.  So if you are interested you can click here.

I better sign off as I need to get this cake done.  I hope your Saturday was a good one :-)
