all my blogs

so many blogs
and so little time

from making a list
to making a rhyme

sharing what's new
with each new day

and spending time with
family to learn and to play

finding out what I
did not know

and telling of places
I wish I could go

loving blogging
and blogging a lot

my children are
my gardening plot

making my way
through the ABC's

and sharing with you
all of these!

upward blogging

I wanted to find
a way to impress

while using a certain
theme from wordpress

I want to keep that
particular design

but have found that it's outdated,
I may have to resign

it and find a newer one
that I can fiddle with

and add what I want when I want
like a professional blog smith

once I get up and going
I think more doors will open

so I'll keep alert and
never stop hopin'

that one day my blogs
will make more money

and I think they will-
a thought sweet as honey

Christmas Shopping

I've already started
my Christmas shopping
though it's still hot

I hate waiting til
the last minute and
running around a lot

I know when I see the
perfect gift which would
make the perfect fit

no matter what the
season, I think it's better
to go ahead and purchase it

I've got books for kids
and magnet games for littler
ones, and I think the best

is the season tickets to three
great plays I got for my daughter-
she'll think it's the greatest!

New Bike

I got a new bike
I'm happy as you
can tell

the old bike was
rusty, troublesome and
would often fail

I have had problems
with the gears for
so long

that I couldn't believe
how easy it is to change them
it's like a new song

I love the red color
and the lightweight frame,
the thinner wheels

I really like the fast way
I ride and the sleek
way it feels

and best of all that
is when my husband said
I'd worked hard

and actually earned this new ride,
that I can now compete-least it's
what I'm working toward

the calm before the storm

there's a storm brewing in the Gulf
and many folks seem panicky

but we are here watching the news
and feeling like nothing out of the ordinary

yes it's a storm with lots
of wind and rain

but nothing really big-
so nothing about which to complain

we've seen much worse
and rode them out too

and after leaving before Rita
you can see why we say we are through

with running before a storm hits
and just sitting it out at home

since it's only a Cat one
and see no need to roam
