Poem for Friday and Longwood in Bloom

Thursday was gorgeous -- 72 degrees, sunny, breezy -- and I saw far too little of it. Remember how I said we didn't think Adam had strep because the quick test was negative? Well, I got a call around 9 a.m., after he had been at school for several hours, to tell me that the culture was positive. So I ran over to the school to pick him up, then ran over to CVS (whose pharmacists took as long as humanly possible to double check an insurance card they've had on record for many months) to pick up his antibiotics.

Then I got him some butternut squash soup and we had lunch together and watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which Adam had decided was the perfect school absentee movie even if he was legitimately home sick. When Paul got home, I went out for a walk, but other than laundry I am behind once again on everything and clearly it is just going to be that kind of week. We watched Awake and the DS9 episode I need to review on Friday, which is my mother's birthday so we are having dinner at our house instead of hers, and I have to get the review posted beforehand. Have some flowers from Longwood Gardens:

Happy birthday Mom!
