Ice Cream in My Bowl
Sitting eating ice cream.. last night by the deck..
Shouldn't really eat it but thought, "Oh, what the heck."
This is the month to celebrate and eat this lovely treat..
My passion is fulfilled... while I still can see my feet.
The flavor was vanilla with chocolate sauce on top..
Pecans and cherries all around, oh please do make me stop.
I'm sitting here this morning with a cup of yogurt creamy..
My thoughts are on the treat last night...it was so very dreamy.
Today, I'll be a good girl and go right past the freezer..
A spoonful in the afternoon.. that's really just a teaser.
Tonight you will find me beside my garden small..
Eating my bowl of ice cream...because after all.
There are two weeks left to celebrate the treat I love so much..
Next month some healthy things are all that I will touch.
When July is over and hot, hot, August takes it's toll..
I'll think of nights beside the deck with ice cream in my bowl.
