Did You Have A Playhouse As A Kid?!

      If you saw my post earlier this morning...MUCH earlier!... ^_^ can now see by my rambling words that I finally woke back up! Ha! Ha! Well, actually, I've been awake for quite a while, but I've been watching tennis, and crocheting, and staying offline because of the thunderstorms passing through our area! O_O It's still raining, and will be until tomorrow they say! Thus explains this post. Sorta kinda. ^_^
      When it gets really rainy and dark outside, and my eyes get too tired from wearing my head light to crochet, I let my mind wander play! :-) Do you remember playing when you were a kid?!...Well, I still do it as an adult! LOL
      That's why this playhouse caught my eye!! :-) Oh, how I wish I had one of these when I was a kid playing in the woods, pretending that weeping willow trees were rain coming down, and that tree branches and stumps were doors and chairs on our outside house. ^_^ It would've been so cool to have an actual door!...that you could close!! ^_^ ...

      I love this look of this playhouse!...It's like a little quiet reading room. Or a place to practice your acceptance speeches, for when you win the literary award of your life!!...or a Grammy. Whichever one comes first! LOL

      And if there was a playhouse for chickens...this other house from this shop would be the one! :-) ...

      Oh yeah, I have friends that might like this little 'chicken playhouse'! :-) If I had the cash, it would be theirs!...two of them!! :-]

      Okay...I'm done doing blog posts for today. And I'm done playing house. ^_^ I' gonna show you some photos hubby took in the yard, and then call it a day!!...

      I had to end it with a flower, didn't I?! ^_^ Have a good rest of the day, Everybody!! 

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!
