From my desk: November 30, 2019

Well, today is it, the last day of November, at least I think it is! Funny, but to this day I cannot remember which months have 30 days or 31. I know February!!! And I do know there are rhymes to remember, I have taught them multiple times to multiple grade levels over the course of my teaching career. But for the life of me, I cannot remember!

Yesterday was a busy day. David and I went to a movie. We saw Ford vs. Ferrari. Once I knew what was going on it was pretty good. We then went and got a drink and a bite to eat. I didn’t get a chance to write though.

Today was another busy day. It wouldn’t have been too bad but it was one of those “sleep until noon” kind of chilly days. We then went to dinner with friends and again, not much writing was done. I look and I see all the challenges I love and I am missing them! ūüė¶ I am much too tired now to continue my night-time reading, the jolt of my relaxing muscles keep waking me up, reminding me I should go to bed.

Good night for tonight! Peace to you all. Sweet dreams sent your way.

Word of the Day Challenge: Suspect

Word of the day: Suspect 

Suppose you were a suspect 
of a very heinous crime. 
Would you even bother 
to worry about the time? 

You might just run and hide away 
just like your father did 
but let me tell you now my friend 
that life is quite morbid. 

You tell me now that I‚Äôm the one 
to try and push you out. 
But what I really want from you 
is peace, that‚Äôs what it’s about.  

So, when you wake and realize 
that you‚Äôll never hear this part 
don‚Äôt try running from the truth 
It’s deep down in your heart.  

The Muse #84

Cabinets rusted, sauce on the wall
This kitchen hasn’t been cleaned in years!
Who will wash the dishes?
Has anyone bothered to shut off the stove?
Is this really my kitchen?
At least I can drink my espresso in peace!

Don’t Worry

Up against the cool stone wall  
The buttress gives support 
As surely as your best job done 
Boss gives a good report.  

If that wall falls in on you 
So that it crushed your soul 
Push it aside, find a new rock 
And let those bad feelings roll. 

You can’t live life so worried 
That you aren’t doing the best. 
There are plenty of others 
Who have always done much less.
