Poem: The Day Before Christmas

Something on a happy note for a change. Inspired by the classic Night Before Christmas poem, here's my take, just a quick fun idea I wanted to share:

'Twas the day before Christmas
And I just had to smirk
As all of this white stuff
Got me a snow-day from work

Shovelling, and scraping
& chipping the ice
Try not to be naughty
& remember to be nice

So that Santa remembers
To bring me a gift
Of course he's real!
If not, I'd be miffed

With flakes drifting down
& gilding the branches
Coating the roadways
We'll still take our chances

To gather with family
& celebrate with friends
To relax & to give thanks
'Til the holiday ends

So bring on the spirit
& maybe the spirits too =)
Drink eggnog, eat cookies
Enjoy what families do

Until the day is done once more
& to home we have returned
Another year, a memory
A respite we have earned

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, have fun & be safe. Thanks for reading.

Poem: Giving Up

The problem with being a perfectionist is that nothing ever gets done ... I wrote this a few days ago, maybe a little over a week & had intentions of going back to polish it up & didn't. But it's not bad even as a first draft. And cobwebs were starting to develop around here ... I'm in a better mood now, but wasn't at the time:

Giving up hope
That anyone will ever understand
Or simply hold my hand
And say things will be alright

Giving up hope
That I will ever find love, or peace
Or contentment, or sweet release
And someone to hold at night

Giving up hope
That I will ever be a part
Of something else, instead of apart
From everyone, in any light

I've got some other ideas to get some more posts flowing over here, but I'm thinking they may not come to fruition until after all this holiday mess. I've got a lot of baking to do this week, so I know I'll be busy trying to fit in normal stuff, let alone new things.

I've got 2 batches of cake balls to make, 2 batches of what I've taken to calling fruity foldovers, both of those recipes for the family cookie exchange this weekend. And then 2 batches of PBB cookies - Peanut-Butter-Butterscotch which is my required dessert at work LOL, I get in lots of trouble if I switch it up with anything else. Plus a hair appointment on Wednesday & and going Thursday to cookie-cut & bake with grandma like 5 or maybe 6 batches of sugar cookies for frosting on Saturday. Cookie pics will show up on MSLP if I remember to take some before eating everything LOL =)

Thanks for reading
