Random 5 Friday

(Thank You, Nancy!!!!)

1.  i am so out of practice.  I started carrying a camera (just a little point and shoot) because of Nancy and her Random 5 Friday Encouragement.   Now i have a reason to get it out again, hm?

2.  (My first ever "empathy monstah")

3.  My newfie went home to God -
(this time last year)
Now the family that rescues me includes
Mr. Franklin Bumble,
 Mia (she was spayed last week)
AND - Jelly Bean the Kitty Queen

4.  I got some fantastic soap from Nancy - 
I use it all the time,
it seems to last forever
I am one of her fans.

5.  I look forward to reading everyone's post in the morning.

Happy Friday!

staying calm for an entire week???

This is Jelly Bean the Kitty Queen.
She likes what she likes.
She does not mind the puppy.
She was concerned when the puppy was away 
the entire night.
She doesn't want the puppy to know 
the Queen paced and watched for the tall wonder to return home.
This is Mr. Franklin Bumble
taking a nap after caring for his baby sister
who needs guidance and care
after returning home from her 
"responsible operation"
Mr. Bumble's job
is demanding.
This is Baby Mia
who thinks
not playing rowdy
for an entire week
is expecting too much
BUT, she does enjoy the extra treats
we do not 
want to spend another night away from home.
Jelly Bean the Kitty Queen
likes the way mom gives everyone treats
when the puppy gets her medicine
and
when the puppy falls asleep
the kitty will curl up close
and guard
but
shhhh
don't ever tell
because it's fun to play hard to get
and maybe whack a nose lightly
gotta keep this pupster trained


life is good

Story Times . . . .

Through May i have Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Morning Story-times
each one different,
each one is happy making 
Today (Tuesday)
which is a super spiffy independent book store in University City
with a small collection of tiny people & guardians
I choose books right off the shelf and we take them for a "test drive"
Today, they were so marvelous, I simply had to share
first:
The Tree House that Jack Built
golly, it is colorful, enchanting 
we ALL loved it
and dreamed of living there
it ends up being a great going to bed book
later, a friend sent me a link to a tree-house in Tennessee
wow.
second:
a Board Book - it offered colors
and had characters I did not remember
it's been a really long time since I read the original books,
so, i get to go back and review . . 
it was good

we sang songs, had a giggle fest and read a third book:
Okay, yesterday was Seuss B-Day
this book actually felt timely
it rhymes.
it counts. it is over the top fabulous,
maybe for a little older than the children today
BUT, we still loved it
AND
It taught about sharing
so, the end got a story lady approval - 

I realize i do not often share
BUT, today 
well, the books just made me happy.
