the smell of bread is in the air
both cranberry and ginger make quite a pair
I can't wait for the pumpkin pie too
and the turkey, gravy, potatoes-to name a few
yes tomorrow will be a feast day
we'll eat and eat and then we'll lay
around for a while to let it rest
then we'll watch a game (or two) while the food digests
perhaps we'll even make it our claim
to get and play our own ball game
it will be a great day over all
when we stop and give thanks this fall

caramel apples

caramel apples
what a treat
not much that
can beat
this sticky snack
full of flavor and so sweet
we love to dip
the apple slices
and know that it might
be great over vanilla ices
it is so easy
to mix it up
there is rarely
any left in the cup

sitting here by day
wondering just where to go
and yet here I stay
because I really just don't know
where to turn or what to do
wondering just what, why, how
and even sometimes who
find it all so weird at times
that I don't know at all
and here I sit trying to make up rhymes
not understanding why the fall

time flies

the weekend is here
and nearly gone again
running around in circles
is driving me insane
I don't know how to get
everything done
and before I know it
the weekend is gone
so here we go, a new
week is nearly upon me
and the same old routine
and cooking, cleaning and laundry
where the time is flying
I don't rightly know
and it seems that it is gone
before I can say so
stop for just a minute
I'll even say please
and give me a breather
to rid me of this disease

Halloween 08

Halloween night
was no real fright
and you might
even say not many in sight
lots guess money is tight
and perhaps the day grew trite
others don't celebrate, no cause to fight
but we had fun in spite
and it was all right
in my costume of Glo Stick light!
