Pensieve’s License to Limerick

‘ Though short no leprechaun I
But to Ireland I’d like to hie
I’d see a shamrock
To the pub I would walk
A green contact I’d put in each eye

A Hair Haiku

Posted by adamswife on February 22, 2008

For More Haiku
I promised pictures
Of my new perm.  Here they are.
At the beauty shop
After Perm
Kathy always says
How cute it looks when she’s done.
I wanted to see.
New Perm
This is how it looks
After I style it myself.
I like it nat’ral. 
 
It’s much easier
To wash and wear than to fool
With the blow dryer.

Random Bits

Posted by adamswife on February 15, 2008

While roses may be red,
And violets certainly are blue,
Today surely is Friday
But this is no Haiku!

Good Morning I’ve looked at all my usual Friday memes – Fantasy Friday, Haiku Friday, Fridge Friday – and decided I don’t want to follow any rules today. So today you get whatever pops into my mind. If you’ve ever been inside my mind you know that could be frightening.

Martha Stewart is visiting “The View” this morning. She’s showing the ladies the proper way to make a bed. I haven’t made my bed yet today. And she has just reminded me that I really need a new mattress. I didn’t need that reminder right now. *turning off the tv*

Did you miss me while I was gone? While I was up I put away my breakfast things and took my morning pills.Old Broads Now there’s a phrase that lets everyone know I’m ‘way past 30 – “my morning pills.” When you’re young you don’t have morning pills. That is another of those things reserved especially for those of us who have reached a “certain age.”

Yesterday was Valentine’s DayRingOHearts a time for hearts, and flowers, and all kinds of love. To show my love for Ed, I went clear across town to his favorite fish and chips joint (Aussie Eats) and got him a big order of same. When I got to the home I found that he was not feeling well and had refused to go to the dining room for supper. So, I cranked up the head of his bed and presented him with his Valentine dinner. It was a big hit – he does so love his fish and chips. And I got him a card that plays “Do You Love Me.” So I played that for him and danced while he ate. It made him smile and laugh a bit. A good day!

The weatherman says we will have some thawing again today. It is certainly bright and sunshiny with clear blue skies. Plowed and shoveled However, my weather minder in the corner down there says it is only 9F. I don’t think I’ll be going out for a few hours. But I will be going out today. I want to take a walk in the fresh air. It’s not that I don’t enjoy making laps through the house, but I need some sunshine. I think I’m getting low on Vitamin D.

HaroldMy son-in-law, Harold, has been out of town on business for nearly two weeks. He is coming home today. Let the rejoicing begin! At least he has a nice, clear day for flying in. His flight was held up when he left because of the bad weather.

So, that’s my day all mapped out for you.Joshua Not very exciting, is it? I do get to babysit the almost-4-year-old while mom goes to the doctor in a bit. Seeing as I have let him live this long, I guess it will be fun. He put his life in danger – again – at 7:00 this morning when he started yelling “Gramma, Gramma” and then told me he couldn’t see because it was dark in here. I tried telling him I was sleeping and he should go away, but that only lasted a few minutes. “Gramma, Gramma, I can’t see.” “Well then, turn on the light,” she grumbled as she reluctantly rolled out of bed.

A Christmas Wish

Posted by adamswife on December 25, 2007

I was visiting Storyteller a few minutes ago and found this lovely Christmas wish posted there by Peajay. I have blatantly stolen it to share with my friends here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


The light of the Christmas star to you
The warmth of home and hearth to you
The cheer and good will of friends to you
The hope of a childlike heart to you
The joy of a thousand angels to you
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you.

Celebration of Jesus Christ

Posted by adamswife on December 3, 2007

On Christmas Day we celebrate
The birth of Jesus Christ.
We trim the tree
And wrap the gifts
And go to parties, too.
We make good things to eat
And share with neighbors and friends.
We wear bright colors
With clothes that sparkle and shine.
The cause of all this celebration
Is a baby pure and sweet.
Sent to Earth by God, His Father,
To teach us kindness and love.
In celebrating
We try to be like Him
Giving love and kindness to all
In His memory.
X-mas Candle

Sick Days

Posted by adamswife on September 12, 2007

Sick Days – How I Hate ‘Em

O the nausea, O the pain,
O the cantankerousness of my brain

I want to do all the things I should
Mow the lawn, chop the wood

Take a walk out in the sun
Diet and exercise can be fun

But my body says “Don’t go,
You need to stay close to the john, you know.”

So I curl up with my blanket and book
A warm pad for my tummy in a cozy nook

And hope that nobody comes to see me
Because I am cranky as cranky can be!

The care that I crave exceeds any other –
The loving touch of my angel Mother.

I sometimes write poetry for my own pleasure and satisfaction.  I recently saw one of those “poetry contest” blurbs and decided “why not?”  Now it seems as though I have to get my friends and family to rate my poem in order to win.  Not sure that makes a real contest.  Anyway, if you would like to read my poem and give it a rating please follow the link posted above.
