Rainy Days and Mondays.... Sometimes They are One in the Same...

" The only normal people are the one's you don't know very well."
- Alfred Adler

"I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing."
- Ronald Reagan

" And the blood of brave men was shed like unto the shedding of rain from a black cloud." - Ferdowsi


- A Bright Red Cardinal
- Trying to stay dry!


"What if time stops?" asks Aurora
"Don't be silly.. time can't stop.. only clocks can stop!"
says her maid..

Now a lost city sleeps!


Slight of Hand-

wishing doll blazes
dumbfounding barbarians-
carnies collect coins

China Town Winter

frostbitten Buddha
apprentice sweeps salty slush
cabdriver sneezes

deceitful lad smiles
his soul secretly fuming-
carpetbagger brays

Today has been another wet day.. the chickens clucked their displeasure and stayed up on their roosts most of the day.. getting down only to eat a few grains of soggy scratch feed.. and waddle to the nest to leave us some eggs.. even the ducks quacked at the skies as if they had had enough rain for a few days!..The dogs whined to go out.. then barked to come right back in.. Cooper slept.. Dave braved the rain to feed all of the animals and to gather the fresh eggs.. I must admit that I was lazy today.. I did laundry.. two loads.. I shopped for food and then cooked it.. nothing fancy.. just hot dogs with the fixings.. slaw and chili and cheese.. I babysat Hannah and Dani for a few minutes while their "Nini" went on a job interview.. and I played some games on-line.. and of course I blogged..

Thanks for stopping by today.. I welcome comments and followers..
Have a wonderful day!
