Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Hurricane Season 2017)

Another hurricane season to be-
Beginning with Arlene, Bret, and Cindy.
.
Much prep time to stop and spend-
As we look for Don, Emily, and Franklin.
.
Named hurricanes in the year of 2017-
Such as Gert, Harvey, and Irene.
.
Supplies gathered and rules of safety-
With an approaching storm Jose, Katia, and Lee.
.
Maria, Nate, Ophelia, and Philippe-
We all wished the hurricanes would stay away.
.
An idea in which we all tend to agree-
But not reality according to Rina, Sean, and Tammy.
.
So as we head towards the 2017 hurricane season much
protection to see-
Last but not least Vince and Whitney.

Wednesday Yarn (Charging That Cell Phone)

There comes a time when you just cannot keep up

with a certain material thing, and what I am talking

about is the cell phone.

 

Days can go by and the thing will not ring, so it

stays charged as it should, but the other day was

another story.

 

It wasn’t a bad thing that happened, but for some

reason or another, I got more calls than I usually do

and I could not keep the things charged.

 

There were several times when I would be answering

sitting next to the plug where I was charging the cell

phone.

 

As I sat there attached to the one spot, it reminded me

of the old days when the phone was attached to the wall,

in some deep dark corner.

 

You were held hostage for this was the only way to make

a phone call, and to receive one. If you walked away, the

conversation was over with. Of course, this was the days

before even the cordless phones.

 

It would be amazing for those younger today, as we talk

all over the neighborhood, all over town, and everywhere

else aside from being stuck in the corner.

 

It did have its advantages though, for if you didn’t want to

be reached you only had to say later that you were out.

Nowadays being out doesn’t work, for we all carry our

cell phones with us. If someone doesn’t get a reply from

you, they know that you’re ignoring them.

 

Anyway, getting back to that fun filled plenty of cell calls

received, I eventually got caught up, and removed that red

streak on the cell. That means it is about out of juice and

I would not be receiving any more calls. Sometimes that

might sound like a good idea.

 

“As time marches down the hall-

One won’t find anymore phones attached to the wall.”

Wednesday Yarn (One More Thing Not On That List)

There have been many times in my life, when I

go to the grocery store to get just that one thing.

Well, before it is over and done, I have more than

just the one thing. Sometimes I just juggle the stuff

in my arms, and at other times I decide that it is time

to go and get a basket.

 

The funny thing is that a lot of times, the thing that I

went for to begin with has been forgotten, and then

it is not remembered until the moment that it is needed

once again.

 

The latest episode of this is the bath bar that the husband

uses. It was getting thinner and thinner until the point that

it was smaller than those in prison are allowed to have.

I saw that on TV. They keep theirs little and thin, so that

they cannot make a weapon out of it.

 

It’s always best to make a shopping list. The list will keep

you on track. Of course, if you get to the store and cannot

find the list, you are back to square one. If you’re like me

you will not remember the main things that you needed.

 

There is always the moment though, to pick up those other

things that are not on the list. The things that you really do

not need, the things that you will regret bringing home. It’s

always wise for me to breeze right past the candy and snack

aisles. Surely none of that was on my list.

 

Well, it may not have been on my list, but when I look again

I can see where some of it slid from the shelves into my basket.

Don’t know how that happens. Better luck next time.

 

“Not a moment to be missed-

Shopping at the grocery store with the well intended list.”

Wednesday Yarn (Mowing That Grass)

It’s time to cut the grass again. There are a few months

during the year when it does not grow much. As a matter

of fact it can appear to be dead.

 

But lo and behold when the spring comes it sprouts back

up again. The grass and the weeds. The best part of course

is the wildflowers. All different colors. I love the purples

ones. Little bitty flowers perfectly made.

 

A neighborhood that was once quiet is now bustling with

that lawnmower sound. Some are a little loud, while others

are extreme.

 

Picking the time to mow on Saturday morning can make a

difference when the neighbors might want to sleep in. Not

everyone gets up at the break of dawn to mow the grass.

 

Some of the flowers that died off during the winter, if you

want to call it that, tend to come back in surprise. You

know that it died and then there is that little green sprout

coming and before you know it, the thing is in full bloom

once again.

 

It’s always fun to find some artificial flowers to blend in

with the real ones. That way there is always something

looking pleasant.

 

Before mowing that grass the mower needs to be looked at.

The oil needs changing, and the blades need to be examined.

Similar to a car it needs to be taken care of so that it will

last another season.

 

Same for the weed eater. To check that oil and make sure there

is enough plastic string. Well, I’m no expert but like the rest of

us in the neighborhood we have spent many years trying to

battle that greenery that grows around us.

 

If we don’t keep up with it, it will take over, and we can’t have

that.

“Keeping up all summer long is well known-

For that green green grass of home.”

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 932 (Here They Come)

It was very clear-

That they would suddenly appear.

.

For this is their season-

They come out, for a good reason.

.

Same shape, but different colors-

The sight of them causes heart stirs.

.

The color yellow used to be their only

style-

But, nowadays, with much variety, they

bring many a smile.

.

One always tends to expect-

A group of Peeps, in their Easter basket.

.

It was very clear-

That they would suddenly appear.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Coloring Those Eggs)

The Easter Bunny put his eggs, out on the table-

And colored them, as best as he was able.

.

He started off with blue-

Painting shiny and making them look brand new.

.

And next came the color yellow-

Just like the sun, looking so mellow.

.

The next egg was painted green-

Just like the grass, and other plants that are seen.

.

Red stood out, as the egg began to dry-

Just like a fire engine is the reason why.

.

The Easter Bunny also mixed colors and made a blend-

This is how much of his time, he did spend.

.

Swirls and stripes and all kinds of shapes-

He used pencils, and all kinds of tapes.

.

Purple eggs came last, as it was his favorite color-

And then he cleaned up his mess as it were.

.

As the colored eggs dried, they were then set-

In many a beautiful Easter basket.

.

To be delivered to children all over the world-

Beautifully painted eggs in prime colors and swirl.

.

The Easter Bunny put his eggs, out on the table-

And colored them, as best as he was able.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 757 (Easter Eggs In Dye)

The eggs began as brown and white-

When the hen laid them, in the morning light.

.

But, today, was going to be different-

With many, many other colors being spent.

.

First came the purple, oh, so bright-

Shining so pretty, right there on site.

.

And, then came the red, that always

demanded attention-

The eggs changing colors was ever so

much fun.

.

Yellow always showed its face-

Pleasant indeed brightening up,

the entire place.

.

Blue is for boys, and girls too-

Whether light or dark, the hue is so true.

.

Orange and pink came next in line-

Egg after egg, a new contrast to find.

.

Many other combinations, came along

as well-

Imaginations, came into play, as all could

tell.

.

And, when the dyeing, was all over and done-

They were gently put into a basket, on Easter

Morning for the special little one.

.

The eggs began as brown and white-

When the hen laid them, in the morning light.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 759 (That Very Last Egg)

 

The egg hunt was begun-

And, it was going to be so much fun.

.

We could see many eggs, on the ground-

And, we knew that before it was all over,

every single one of them would be found.

.

We were all in a big rush-

To retrieve the purple egg, under the brush.

.

And, the one that was immediately spotted

under the tree-

Along with the other ones, that we could

easily see.

.

And, then it got a bit harder, for some

were hidden so well-

Under a rock, behind the barn, and inside

a bell.

.

After the hunt, we counted the eggs in our

baskets-

And, we came to the conclusion, that there

was still one more egg to get.

.

We searched and searched high and low-

Until we had run out of ideas with no place

else to go.

.

Mama smiled and such a silly look she did get-

Good grief, the very last egg was in her apron pocket.

.

The egg hunt was begun-

And, it was going to be so much fun.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 943 (To Follow The Beep)

 

To fill an Easter basket-
To get as many eggs as one can get.
.
The beeping eggs guide the way-
To stay on path, to limit the stray.
.
To hear a beep, and then head over there-
This event was put on by loving folks who care.
.
For I cannot see, but, I can hear the sound-
Many, many eggs, will be heard and found.
.
My basket is heavy, as I walk away-
I’m just a child enjoying a glorious day.
.
To fill an Easter basket-
To get as many eggs as one can get.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 946 (Running Legs)

 

I saw the running legs-

They were in motion hunting for Easter eggs.

.

The eggs had been put out the night before-

By the Easter Bunny, not bought at the store.

.

Some were plastic and some were hard-boiled-

It was obvious, to see, that the Easter Bunny had

labored and toiled.

.

As he does every year, without fail-

Whether sunshine, thunderstorm, or a bit, of hail.

.

Before long, the Easter baskets were filled-

And, then the running legs were finally stilled.

.

I saw the running legs-

They were in motion hunting for Easter eggs.

Wednesday Yarn (Eggs)

I like eggs. There are so many ways to fix the things.

To scramble, boil, add to other foods, and to fry, just

for a small list.

 

My grandmother had quite a few chickens on the farm

in which she grew up, and when she got older, that was

the one thing that she yearned for was to have a small

stock of chickens out in the yard. Unfortunately, where

she lived it was not permitted, but she still dreamed

about the thought anyway.

 

It could have been that she really loved the chickens, and

or that it reminded her of an earlier time. We all like to

go back and think of those special moments in our

childhood.

 

There are all kinds of eggs, but the ones we generally think

about are the ones in the hen house. The ones that we buy

at the grocery store. The ones that come in all sizes. The ones

with the yellow yolks.

 

This is the time of the year when a different type of egg is

both bought and brought. The kind that is made and filled

with chocolate. To take it even a step further we are inclined to

go for the chocolate ones with the other types of filling inside.

 

I can vision my grandmother as a child heading out to the hen

house, to gather some eggs for breakfast. More than likely

there would be times when she might drop and break one. To

be more careful next time is what she learned.

 

We’re getting closer each day to the Sunday that the eggs will

change colors, as they would be dyed the night before. To hunt

in the grass, where the special one left them. To crack one open

and eat it, with a piece of candy too. Oh, for the good old days.

 

“Eggs cooked well-

Cracked open or still in the shell.”
