And a Time for Every Purpose

The house is untidy, the yard is a mess,
the sheets need washing, the dress needs a press;
the dished are piled high in the sink
but right at this moment I'm having a think!

The Best Point of View

"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing,
wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating;
there is really no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather"
~ John Ruskin

Bald and Proud!

Two new softies joined us today
they seem very nice, their colors are gay
but behind their backs we can't help but stare:
do they know that the have no hair?

Sunshine, You Are Missed!

In these cold, gloomy days
trying to fight off a cold
I think longingly of that Provence vacation
and of all the trips planned for 2015

This basket was hanging on a door in one village with mail in it
It seemed a wonderful idea to me - 
except when it rains, of course

A Silly Old Bear

They all agree that I'm a good looking bear
a dashing figure really, with my own kind of flair
but when they take photos of little old me
why do they assume that I work for free?

A Balanced Diet

"A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand"

(could also work with brownies, IMO)

A New Toy

My new Icing Decorating Pen has just arrived! Exciting times
I've yet to do anything worth showing with the pen itself
but the cardboard box it came in has already been used -
I made a new bed for Orangette and Primrose.

It's very cold today
I wish I'd given them another blanket
