Favorite meal…

leftovers

Leftovers

Leftovers (or as my brother called them, overcooks) are my favorite meals. I think leftovers taste better than when they were first cooked and served.  Nothing better than watching a movie with a plate of good food that didn’t take long to prepare. Besides being quick and easy to prepare the clean up is usually easy, not as many pots and pans and dishes to wash. Leftovers are the best comfort food.

Wrapping up…

When I chose the word wrapped for
In Other Words the week before Christmas
I imagined Christmas stories and happy thoughts.
When I sat down to write a story this is what came to my mind.
I don’t know where it came from or why.
But it did and here it is.
I had a lovely Christmas but it’s over folks.

What are you doing? he asked.
Just wrapping up your stuff for you, she answered.
Why, am I going somewhere?
Yes, you are and I don’t care where.
You don’t believe the redhead is just a friend, huh?

Maybe or maybe not…

Here is a story that may or may not have some truth to it.
You can decide for yourself.

elf-596155_640

I think that maybe once upon a time I saw an elf
He seemed quite real and somewhat shy like I am myself
Seemed he wanted to get to know me and was unsure how to proceed
Maybe imagination and the bit of drink I had made me think so
Sadly, a fat man in a red suit called to him and said they had to go
.

What I am thinking…

My Chatter at the Tuesday Cafe
is about something that is on my mind
and the poem I wrote for In Other Words
says what I am thinking.

It is Christmas time
Days of silly craziness
Nothing heavenly
In all this insane madness
Look for the blessings holy

Shopping…

My Tuesday Chatter is an In Other Words story.

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
using the word, shopping.

She brought all the bags in and dropped them on the table. The stores were so busy it took hours of shopping to get everything she needed for the family dinner on Sunday. She was tired and looking forward to a cup of tea and a nap but first, the bags must be emptied and all the fixins sorted and put away before she could rest.  She was almost done with all the bags empty and the kitchen neat and tidy…but wait. Oh, no, she forgot the ham!

Can you relate to this? I sure can.
Can’t count the number of times
I have come home from the grocery store
without the one thing I went to the store to get.

Chat and gobble…

elephant-677712_640

Tis the holiday time of year
When we so heartily gobble
However, let there be no fear
Overweight and with a wobble
New year diets will soon be here
