A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Monday Musings

Just thought I'd repost this poem that I wrote a while back. Since it's going to snow everyday...I might as well enjoy writing about it. 

First Snow by Balisha

I'm standing in my little house, beside a window small..
I see the day that lies ahead..a day when snow might fall.
The clouds that gather in the sky, are telling me this day..
My comfy house will be so warm...a cozy place to stay.
Looking out I see the first of many flakes to fall..
Big and puffy come at first and then they change to small.
The wind blows fierce and little birds are trying to take flight..
If this keeps up my world of green will turn a snowy white.
I'll stand here by my window and work throughout the day..
And go to bed tonight and dream of yesterday.
When morning comes and I awake and come to window small..
I'll look and see a world so white from that very first snowfall.

I don't have to tell anyone.....Brrrrr! It's cold out. Sitting here before breakfast... trying to decide if we will go to therapy today. Joe got a pulled muscle at therapy last time he visited and he still feels some pain there.

We were looking at the squirrel nest, high up in our trees.. in the back, and noticed something big and white. It was hard to see it with binoculars even. Forgot about it and did some things around the house....went back and the big white spot was gone. We are thinking that a hawk or eagle might have been there...having breakfast. Now, I know that they have to eat too, but not a little squirrel or it's baby.

We watched most of the Grammy's last night, and found that we are really old. I like most kinds of music, but some of today's music leaves something to be desired. My favorite part was Pink soaring above the crowd on a trapeze of ropes, while singing her song "Try" She didn't lip sync...while she was dangling doing her acrobatic fete she kept on singing...then moving on to the stage and doing more acrobatics while singing too. I thought it was breath taking. Would love to have been below her in the crowd...cheering her on. Did anyone else receive awards...I wouldn't know...I was still mesmerized by her performance.

There's left over ham in the fridge today. I'll have to dream up a dinner using that. All that comes to mind right now...is ham and scalloped potatoes or ham fried rice.

It sure is hard to write interesting posts when you are in the house all the time. I think that tomorrow I will start something new. I have several interesting pieces of furniture and maybe a picture and post about those pieces would be fun. My favorite day this past week was Sunlit Sunday You can still go there and see the pictures that everyone posted...here's the link http://mylittlehomeandgarden.blogspot.com/2014/01/sunlit-sunday-week-4.html 

Bye till tomorrow....Balisha

Balisha, I always enjoy all your posts, but I especially enjoy seeing your houseplants in wintertime. I don't have space for any, and yours are so beautiful. They surely add a bit of freshness.

Enjoyed your poem! I agree with you about Pink. All I remember from the Grammies a few years ago was her "flying" in - and this year! She is so athletic and capable of those moves. Fascinating.

Stay warm! :)

Pink does like the flying thing. She's very good at it.
Interesting to see what a person does to stay entertained when inside because of the cold.
We were warm on the weekend but cold, cold again. Just no snow. We need the snow.

I enjoyed your poem!

What a pretty poem! Thank you for sharing with us. I'm not into the Grammy's, but I turned it on for a few minutes last night to see what was going on. I saw Pink, but I don't really like her or her music, so her performance didn't do much for me. Oh well, each to their own, right? I hope you came up with a yummy dinner with the leftover ham. We had split pea soup (which had ham in it!).

I like the poem--and the photos from yesterday too. My Mother's house was warm with color, but she loved the starkness of winter too. The snow on the green pine trees, the dark tree bark on the Maples with the snow piled high on the branches, filtering down with the slightest breeze. I just keep thinking our nice our spring gardens will be when all the snow melts and fills their roots with moisture.

Your lily is really pretty and your poem was lovely.

Your poetry is always good Pat.From what I have heard the Grammys were quite disgusting this year.
