The Weather Outside

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 9:57 PM

old man winter staggered in
yesterday, belligerent smelling
of christmas wine
singing his hellos
in a low baritone
he eased into his chair and cried

(c) me. just now.

today is officially my first day of Winter break. i love it! i had plans to finish (uh, start) my Christmas shopping today, but now it's raining. i know, many of you are looking at my rain and WISHING that's all you had (i see you Xtina!), but this is Cali and we don't do rain lol.

i played stay at home mommy today. i already made the munchkin pancakes & turkey bacon. i couldn't NOT make him pancakes, being that the first thing out of his mouth this morning was "Pancakes!" not "good morning mom" or "hi mom," but "Pancakes! Pancakes mom!" apparently my child is addicted to pancakes. he asks for them EVERY day, all day. i think if he could eat them all day he would. thank God for the microwavable ones (although i made 'em from scratch today).

this past weekend i devoured Sista Souljah's latest effort, Midnight. i am torn. i read the Coldest Winter Ever so very long ago (10 years?), and was looking forward to the follow up. it's an interesting read, a bit slow for me in the begining, and a bit unrealistic, but definitely entertaining. if i get my brain together this week, i'll write an official review. my only REAL gripe about the book? the pictures she included of Midnight. picturing him, his beauty, his blackness, in my mind was half of the fun of reading Winter...but oh well. i'm still waiting on the film!

what are you guys up to this week? done with shopping? trapped beneath the snow? holla at the kid.

    I really feel like you might be rubbing that lovely rain in my face. lol
    I think munchkin, is a young man after my heart. PANCAKES! Yum! lol

    I can't bring myself to read Midnight. I saw the cover,( I know I can't judge) but it's just not how I pictured that beautiful man, looking. I don't want to ruin the love I have for "winter". ; )

    Did you say you want to come help shovel, the foot of snow were getting??

    Burrr ... it's soooo cold outside! I'd swap the rain for this 6 inches of snow that we got. Hmmm ... and I love pancakes, too.

    Peace & Blessings, Sis, to you & yours this holiday season.

    Hey there!

    I look forward to your review of SistaSoulja's book. I remember when it came out a long time ago but I didn't see a lot of press about it!

    Have a wonderful holiday!

    Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
