Autumn with berry

Certain discoveries were made today at the lunch table…

“Look mom!  A head with a hat!”

~Autumn Cook (Age 8)

I never knew blueberries and raspberries could look like people.  Lol…  😉

#MidnightMadness – 5/9/2017

Every night at the dinner table, we have somebody pose a question.  Tonight my daughter asked… “What’s the weirdest dream you’ve ever had?”  My husband immediately chimes in… “Nope, there’s not enough time in this life for that one!”  And straightaway he looks right at me and smirks.  Lol….

Here’s a few of them I’ve written about… what do you think, is he right?  😉

The Narrow Escape

It was the year 2117…

A dream that I will never forget…


The Vision

Another Vision

One night, my youngest daughter Autumn (who was about 5 yrs. old at the time) was visited by the tooth fairy.  The next morning I asked her if the tooth fairy had come.  She nodded yes and had a very glum look on her face.  I asked her what was wrong and she told me to come see for myself.  After following her into her bedroom, she pulled out a one dollar bill from under her pillow and said, “See… this is what she gave me!”  I said, “Oh, a dollar!  That’s exciting!  She shook her head in disagreement and said, “Well, the last time I got a whole quarter!”

Death of a clothes dryer…


Oh the poor dryer just went

It was part of a very nice set

But after fourteen years of nonevent

It finally decided to blow a gasket

The heavy loads it underwent

Caused it to rust and dent

And now I must lament

Over the money that must be spent

For there’s no way to circumvent

A dryer which has gone to this extent

Oh why must life be hell bent

In bringing such discontent

I guess I should reinvent

And make a dryer that’s tough as cement

Then maybe I’ll make a few cents

Out of a rather frustrating event

And if this becomes a reoccurring incident

They’ll have to send me to a convent

Where I’ll be forced to repent

For the bad words I’m about to vent

Some thoughts on friendship…

A new friend often wishes you well.

An old friend can only hope you are well.

A good friend asks you regularly if you are well.

A best friend makes sure you most certainly are well, and then socks you in the arm or starts a pillow fight if you aren’t.  😉

The Crazies – Writing 201: Poetry (Day 7 – Neighborhood, Ballad, Assonance)


The Crazies

The Crazies as it’s defined
Is a neighborhood of all kinds
Here is some of what you’ll find…

A pastor who is always scheming
A polygamist who is usually beaming

A newlywed couple who are active and fit
A snobby white guy who acts like a twit

A homeschooling mother who hides in her house
A serial killer who is quiet as a mouse

A traveling duo who live the good life
An old geezer who has no wife

A preppy family with a dog named bogey
An obsessive control freak who is always smoking a stogie

A hoity-toity couple who spoil their dog
A girl who likes to write stories and blog

And last but not least let’s not forget the seniors
Or the girls that lay in the grass, we call them dreamers

All of these people can be found on our street
So come visit sometime, I’ll save you a seat!

As a child, I never quite understand the purpose or point of imaginary friends.  Maybe it was the fact that I disliked the real friends I had so much, that there was no possible way I would have ever wanted to make more of them in imaginary form.  All of my children have had imaginary friends, so it sort of got me wondering why I never did.  Have any of you ever had an imaginary friend?

I was having a conversation with my 15 yr. old daughter, about how everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.  We came to the conclusion, that we must accept the simple fact, that we can’t possibly do everything.

My daughter had to add this…


Brianna – “Hey mom, even Jesus can’t do everything…”

Me – “What do you mean sweetie?”

Brianna – Well, he can’t sin!”

Me – “Oh, good point!”  Lol…

Me – “I feel so alive today!”

Hubby – “I thought I felt somebody bite my neck last night…”
