He is into EVERYTHING.

I was so desperate for some peace, I let Jay play with the fire extinguisher.

Worst momma ever.

Hello May

Whew.  April is over, but the daffodils linger on.

They don't seem as mean anymore. 

A friend shared William Wordsworth's poem I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud, or commonly known as Daffodils, with me.

You can never translate what poetry means to you, unless you are in college and being forced to do it.  But in short, it made me place the flowers on par with the stars.


I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

William Wordsworth
