The will and won’t of leave…

I am Pondering the word leave with Brenda at BYG Adventures


I will  leave home  after making sure Teddy has a full bowl of food
so he won’t eat the leaves of my houseplants.

I will always clear off my desk before leaving work
so I won’t leave anything important undone.

I will always ask for a leave from work
so I won’t be absent without leave.

My retirement plan:
I will leave this life once I have spent every penny I have
and I won’t leave anything for anyone to inherit.

What day were you were born…

Supposedly the day of the week you were born gives an
indication of your character and future.

There is a nursery rhyme about the day you were born.

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go.
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good in every way.
Can you guess what day of the week I was born?


I don’t think the nursery rhyme reflects
my character or my life and hopefully not my future.

What day were you born?

Wednesday, feathers and flappers…


a young woman, especially one who, in the 1920’s,
behaved and dressed in a bold and flaunting unconventional way.

a young bird just learning to fly


Today, I think flapper was a good name for these young women
because like young birds they were learning how to use their feathers
to fly from the nest.
