Happy Birthday to My Husband

Happy birthday to you
I love your eyes so blue
I love how you kiss me too
I love how you have stayed so true
I know that I'll never rue
Having gotten married to you
You are the best guy I could ever choo(se)
You are one of the few
Who keep things ever new
I never know just what you'll brew
Even when things seem askew
Or we feel like we live in a zoo
I just want to say this will be seen through
And I will always be in love with you

How Much Is Your Blog Worth?

When it comes to blogging
There are some that are better
Than others.

While I maintain quiet
A few, I thought
that no bother.

When I wanted to learn
Just how much each
Was worth

I went to the test to find
That it really filled
Me with mirth

To find that the ones
I most adored are not
The ones on top

While at the same time
The ones I thought “unworthy”
Really did have some “pop”.

So if you really want to know
Just how much each of
Your blogs is worth

Hop over to
this little site

To see if it can increase
Your wallet’s girth

You may be a bit surprised
As I was to find just
Which blog

Of yours is the one
That is worth most
Living high on the hog

My blog is worth $3,387.24.
How much is your blog worth?

in trying to bring
my blog a little love
in trying to help
raise its rank above

and beyond where it now lies
to support anyone
who may choose to comment
and to also join the fun

I have chosen to delete
those tiny words "no follow"
and added in my own
to fill in any hollow

it is best for blogs
when they can be linked
to each other with love
helping us all to think

that we can raise our traffic
and our rank
to help spread the love around
and here is who I have to thank

jerseygirl showed me the way
to find what I need to know
to get the link and badge
to join this DO FOLLOW show

It's Getting Late

It's getting late
It's past the time
When I should stop
This little rhyme

I must get to bed
And get some sleep
I need the rest
For tomorrow's heap

Of work will soon arrive
To greet me and send me
On my way, busy, busy
An endless swirly

But I can't stop
I've got to blog
There are so many
Things I've got to log

And if I do not
Will it remain
Til another day?
For I'll be back again.

fish camp

my son just left
for fish camp
he will spend the day
learning to be a champ

when it comes to
learning the ropes of school
and just what to do
each day and every rule

the school will provide
lots of new things
for him to experience
and new learning will bring

him some good
opportunities that he may
not have had
and will help him learn his way

so while he's gone
I'll just sit home and pray
that he will flourish
and in my heart he'll stay

even when he's gone
and off doing new things
I'll know that it's what we want
to eventually cut those strings

I'm Late

I'm running late
though it's not fate
it's just great
to sit and debate
on what to relate
on my blog slate
and then I see the rate
of time elapsed, and I hate
to think that I can't elaborate
because I'm in no state
to leave my pate
looking like this-at this rate
I'll never make a fashion plate
and yet I sit trying to restate
never mind it's almost eight
I've gotta restate
no need to translate
I'm late, I'm late, I'm late...

the daily grind

the daily grind
can put me so far behind
that I feel like a leftover rind
with no time to unwind
I'm often in a bind
how to manage the time
I hope to find
a way to rewind
and never forget to be the kind
of person to enjoy when I've dined
on the richness of life, and shined
out a ray of joy when all has been lined
up and never repined
over the losses that were mine

Water Aerobics

I'm going to swim,
and it's no whim

I'll jog and run
while in the pool under the sun

I'll splash and kick
and then we'll pick

Which leg lift with which to start
and begin to raise the rate of our heart

We'll fill the milk jugs
with water, then slug

Them up to begin
our arm lifts again

Then we'll cool back down
with a walk and no frown

We'll head home worn out
and happy from our water aerobics bout
