I Know! I know! You're sick of me complaining, moaning, joking, spitting, spouting, and kvetching about....SNOW!!! But I can't help myself! Every time I look out of a window, it's all I see!! Maybe I should call this blog Poetesswug's SNOW Blog!! LOL
The header photo is my backyard!...*sigh*...Remember what it used to look like?
Now all of the green grass and flowers are buried!
And the pool is buried!
When I look out the window early every morning, hopeful that some miracle has happened overnight and all of the snow will be gone!...or at the very least, that the mounds and mounds of it are only just a poetic dream...because boy Oh boy! have I been writing poems about it!!...What I keep seeing is this...
And the more I look...
...the more I'm longing for the 'good old days' of sneezing, wheezing, itching, scratching, sunny...
And I don't think I'm the only one longing for Spring either! Croatian_Latina, over at the blog Croatia, is trying to fight the winter blues too! She's in Iowa, in the U.S. right now, and this is what they've been dealing with!
Look familiar??!!! LOL
But, on a good note, I'm still smiling! And the reason is....first of all, a lot of prayer and good association....and then, because people, including you all, keep giving me reasons to smile! :-) I was smiling first thing this morning when I went to my Wuglyees etsy shop and found that I had made 3 sales overnight!!
One was the black men's slippers I custom made; One was the brown butterfly necklace I crocheted with the red wire; And one was the multi-colored brooch I made with the Czech glass fly attached to it! It's nice to see some of my more creative and different items going out of the shop now. It kinda gives me fuel to keep creating, and keep thinking out of the box! :-)
Speaking of 'BOX', I got another reason to smile, in the mail last night. I'll let the pictures tell you the story.
I'm tempted to tell you the who, what, when, where, and how of my getting these chocolates....but I didn't get permission from the sender to do that. So, just let me say that SOMEBODY was VERY happy with something they received from me!!...And that SOMEBODY put a gigantic, humongous, Cheshire Cat smile on my face when the mail came! ^_^
I don't know how they taste...yet! It was late when I got them, and it's not even breakfast time now, but they smell DELICIOUS!!! And...truly...there's not many chocolates that I've ever met that I didn't like on some level!!! ^_^ So thank you 'Special SOMEBODY'!! You made my evening!! :-) And made me know that a repeat of this poem was a must today!!
A snow storm on the way,
finding out you're hard in debt.
Somehow it's not so bad,
if you have melted chocolate!
Bad news everywhere,
want to throw your T.V. set.
Thankfully there's music
and some deep dark chocolate!
Doggie had an accident,
another long trip to the vet.
A waiting room with lots to read,
but you can nibble chocolate.
Grocery shopping too.
While you run in their to get
dinner for the evening
you can grab some chocolate!
Okay, you know what's coming.
Are you sick of this poem yet?!
If you are, just roll your eyes,
and sit and eat some chocolate!
