Creepy Basement

This is the outer doorway to our 'creepy' basement. It gives you a basic idea of what it may look like beyond the door. Unfortunately I couldn't build up enough courage today to take pictures of the basement, what with the eerie gray skies, misty rain and the chilling aura surrounding me! Maybe another day, when there is a tornado heading this way and the only safe place to be would be IN the basement......

The Limehouse Hike

Such a beautiful day it was today. Gorgeous weather, fabulous company, and amazing scenery. The boys and I enjoyed a 3 hour hike with our friends Doris and Alex in Limehouse. As you can see the boys LOVED every minute of the hike and their explorations. We ended it off with ice cream, popsicles, coffees and even complimentary hot chocolates for the boys in Georgetown.

The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.
~Henry David Thoreau

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

My 2 'Other' Children

I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that.

Cole's New Hat

Once Upon A Time,

Cole saw a hat.
He like the hat.
He wanted the hat.
He saved up for the hat.
He bought the hat.
He owns the hat.

The End. ♥

Artificial Drinks

I tell you it's evil, an

Temptation of awfulness

That dupes many perpetually

With commercial success.

What is this fascination

With lemonade and tea

And carbonated sodas?

They do naught to refresh me.

These are artificial beverages,

They merely augment thirst and have dregs.

Their packaging authenticates freshness;

Water never needed jazzy bottles or kegs.

It was always readily enough

And plentifully consumed.

But packaging sells capitalism;

One day they'll all be plumed.

Haven't these people heard of water?

It is what fulfills.

A lack of this mercury,

Platinum-valued drink kills.
