TGIF ~ Desert Haiku

Yeah, so it’s been a while since I tossed out a Paint Chip Friday prompt, but I saw some new paint colors and got inspired. If you are so inclined, choose a word or two from my haiku and create your own ~ or go to Lowes and grab new paint color names for yourself. It’s also fine to engage in the usual non-themed TGIF jabber and link back. I’m easy.

Weird wet weather this week again here in SoCal. I’m so tired of dreary days and am ready for some sunshine, but sadly it looks like we’ll be getting drenched again next week. Naturally, the storms have triggered a raft of migraines, and I’ve been diligently managing those. I just discovered this week that the Rx medication I sometimes take for nausea with migraines (ondansetron) can cause headaches. LOL.

Oops, it’s St. Patrick’s Day, isn’t it? I should have used green colors for my ‘ku. Oh well, too late now! If you celebrate, have fun. I probably will just go to the office and come straight home, since my partying days are waaay in the past, and the idea of going out after work and drinking a green beer or whatever is simply too exhausting to contemplate. I didn’t have pie for pi day either. I’m so boring.

  1. My grocery store was handing out samples of Key Lime pie for pie day and although it was very tiny, it was so yummy.

  3. So sorry about your headache! Maybe an Irish coffee would help! The storms in CA have been passing over to AZ. We had a huge storm on Wednesday. Hope you feel better soon! Paint chips – what a unique poetry prompt!

  4. Only now do I understand the whole paint chip thing. A little slow on the uptake . . . I guess inspiration can strike anywhere, even while shopping for a new paint roller.
    Didn’t observe pi day, though its implications are always around one. St. Patrick’s Day eludes me, as always. I think it should be rolled up with 4th of July and get it over with.
    But it IS Friday. Have a good weekend.

  5. Pretty flower, and I like your poem! I have a whole box of those paint chip names that came in a game a couple of years ago. I still don’t understand it. haha.
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! ☘️
