Colorful Saturday!

      We're still alive, hubby and I, after our 'virtual date' of sleep...sleep...and more sleep....our trip to dreamland! ^_^ ... Yeah! We stayed home, ate catfish and sausage, and got us a long earned, much needed 'nap-o-rama'!! LOL
      It was a good date!...but, of course, no good date goes unpunished!...This morning I can barely move my left hand! LOL Well, not the whole hand...just the middle finger up to the palm of my hand. I think it's an arthritis flare-up, because it's all swollen at the joints and knuckle...And I hope it goes away pretty soon! That's the hand I hold my thread in, when I crochet!!! O_O
      So, for now I'll just have show off other people's crochet! :-) That's why I shared the colorful cupcake scarf in the header photo!...And this one below!...

      I'm sure I'll get back to my crocheting after I rest my hand for a couple of days...Or, at least, I hope so!! O_O That's what I get for napping too much!! LOL...And being too old!...and being too....! Ugh! This could go on forever!! LOL I'll just stop there. :-))
      Instead of going on and on about my age and ailments, I'll share some more Saturday color!...

      Now I'm off to finish my green tea...and see if I can soak my aching finger/hand!...What next, right?!......Well, stop asking!!! LOL I don't ask questions like that!!...Something new might happen!...And I wanna keep my feebleness and pain spurts to a minimum!!! LOL
      Enjoy your Saturday, Everybody! Go and play, or something! :-)

Do You Play?!

I had some 'Play Time' in my youth,
back when my hips could take the heat.
I couldn't wait to find someone
that I could race, chase down, or beat!

How many times did I 'Hopscotch',
play some marbles, skip a rock?
And a game of 'Tag' could go
until you couldn't see the clock!

All my games were very active.
So much energy, people! WOW?!
But things have changed. It's different,
because I'm so much older now!

I still have 'Play Time' at my age,
but the games are slow and rare.
I like board games, playing cards,
things you do right from your chair.

The games I watch can't be too long.
I'll fall asleep! I'm kind of nod-dy.
And I have to use my mind.
No running round now with this body.

I play with things like yarn,
and with hooks...even thread.
And I play with pen and pencil,
pulling poems from my head.

Whichever way, I have to play!
It's my excuse to have a laugh.
I just have to keep it slow.
Don't want a charlie-horse in my calf!
