Thursday Stuff

 Good Morning!

Gosh it is cold (20 this a.m. when I got up and it doesn't look like the temp has risen any yet).  But, I've managed to get all my Thursday financial reports completed and it's not even 9:30 yet!  Hopeful that I can find a bit of time to knit/stitch/read/avoid work...we will see.

The other day I mentioned that my friend Leslie has had a poem accepted for a "Poetry in Public" program in North Carolina.  Again, I cannot share that particular poem with you because it has not yet been published and sharing it would disqualify it.  But, I do have two poems of Leslie's that I can share with you.  I like them both.



And finally, a funny that my friend Carol shared with me this a.m.  I'm sure she saw it on Facebook or some social media avenue.

That's it for me!  Have a great day.

  4. I'm not a big fan of poetry, but I like both of hers. I guess because I can relate to bookstores (love wandering in an old bookshop) AND having a different hobby than Steve. I enjoyed seeing them.

  7. I really like both of Leslie's poems, especially the second one. I don't go hunting with John and he doesn't go yarn shopping with me. There is plenty of room in a relationship for each person to have their own interests (and that often works much better for the relationship)!

  11. Hello
    The poems are wonderful, your friend has a way with words. I have seen a similar meme but instead of yarn they used wine, another glass or drink. Take care, enjoy your weekend!
