I'm usually clueless about what to give dad on occasions like this. But after running to mommy for help (which is what usually happens when I need to give a present to my dad) I came up with something all by myself: a book of my poetry.
I started off looking through my poems, to find some that could go in this book for him. I chose a variety of poems, some of which I had really put some work into, and others that I hadn't really put any work at all into but which I thought he'd like anyways. I also had a laugh at my attempts at love poems. To date, I have one love poem that I think is good -- all the others, even I find laughable. No, I did not put any of them into this book for him.
Next I had to put the book together. I know how to bind a book, and I have the materials to do so, but I didn't have the time. Still, I think he's just as happy with the simple book that's stapled together as he would have been with a properly binded book. :) I also included a few photographs of mine that complemented the poems included.
As I said, today is two days rolled into one. I've talked about father's day, now I'll talk about Litha. :)
Litha is the summer solstice, and is a Pagan holiday. We aren't really doing much for it. Truthfully, it seems to have sort of gotten lost in father's day. I did make a nice fruit salad using strawberries from our own backyard...and that seemed to get lost in father's day. *sigh* Ah well. Well, there's still the whole evening left to celebrate Litha! So we'll see what I can think up. :P Correction: We'll see what I can think up and still get to bed at a reasonable time, since I start summer school tomorrow. Yikes!
ps. The spellchecker doesn't like Litha. >.<
