Wordless Wednesday

Dawson in Wait

Focus – Dawson

Hello

I wanted everyone to know where I’ve been for the past few days. I feel bad as I’ve not been around to do very much reading.  I lost my wifi and I’m waiting for a new modem to arrive from Bell.

I managed to tether my phone to my laptop but … I can’t be doing that very often as it eats up the data.

I’m hoping to be back online soon.

Take care everyone and be safe!hearts

Family of Squirrels

The following children’s poem was written in response to Crispina’s weekly challenge. 

CCC#76

There’s a tree in the field where squirrels love to play

The trunk is partially hollowed out, come with me to see it today

I’ll introduce you to my friends

You’ll see that there are ten

A family of squirrels that all have names

They are friendly and quite tame

Mama likes to sit on my boot

She really is such hoot

Squirrel Daddy

Never treats anyone badly

Then there is Fuzzy whos never bathed

He was very stinky the other day

The eldest girls name is Pearly

and yes she is squirrely

Next, there are the twin’s Skippy and Slappy

They’re so much fun and always happy

A flying squirrel whose name is Rocky

His mama says he’s quite cocky

Another male, that’s quite burly

Due to his tail, his name is Curly

Abby is my favorite girl

She loves to whirl and twirl

The last of the ten is named Sandy

She’s always asking me for candy

Please come along with me today

Meet the squirrels who love to play

Sing-Along Song Challenge

Crispina Kemp has a new challenge. 

For her challenge, I chose What a Wonderful World. If you’d like to sing along, here are the lyrics.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do
They’re only saying I love you
I see babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn so much more than I’ll ever know
Then I think to myself what a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do
They’re only saying I love you
I see babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn so much more than I’ll ever know
Then I think to myself what a wonderful world
Then I think to myself what a wonderful world

Falling …

Soaking the ground

Nourishing the grasses

Vegetation growing quickly

Thank You For All That You Do

 

To all the medical professionals, firefighters, police,  grocery store people, restaurants providing take-out, truckers, farmers, and all the people staying at home to help in the spreading of this terrible pandemic I want to say thank you for all that you do.

What would we do without you

I cannot imagine that

You go out every day

and make the world a better place

I want to say thank you

for everything you do

From the bottom of my heart

Bless all of you.

I stood in shock

looking down the block

 

Taking stock

of all the locks

on the dock

Surely this was a mock

Needed now, a glass of hock
