William Wordsworth (1770-1850), British poet. My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold (l. 1-2). . . The Poems; Vol. 1 [William Wordsworth]. John O. Hayden, ed. (1977, repr. 1990) Penguin Books.

TIME:  6:29 PM
PLACE:  Longacre Park
SUBJECT:  Rainbow

Busy, busy day.  Up early to travel 33 miles to MB’s football game which had a 9:00am start time.  They won, which made the trip worth it.  Back home to get MB and HH packed up for a Cub Scout campout at the Washington County Conservation area just south of Nashville, IL.  After they left, the girls and I went out for a little retail therapy.  Old Navy, Borders, a quick tour of the mall, then dinner at Fazolis.  It was raining when we left the restaurant and when we looked up, we saw a rainbow.  Since we were close by the park, I drove there to get a photo without those pesky electrical wires in the background.  For a few minutes, we could make out a faint second rainbow that appeared above this one.  It didn’t photograph well…bummer.  Afterwards, we continued on to Target for essentials – kitty litter, dishwasher detergent, some socks, pj’s and t-shirts for SD, and various other sundry items.  An exciting Saturday, don’t you think?
