Saturday Symmetry and Poetry bonus

This was a photo challenge in 2018

Same photo using LunaPic Kaleidoscope 

My poem to go with the original photo

Symmetry for your Mind's Eye 

The Forest
Cecilia 2018
Deep in the woods where the sun 'don't' shine
you'll find treasures to behold with stories untold. 
If you know your stuff and don't mind roughin' it, 
surprises are bountiful to the bold. 
Trees grow tall, they shade the ground. 
 The earth is carpeted with lush green moss.
Some days rays of sun filter through the trees. 
Other days are wet with a chill and a bit of breeze.
Forest critters scurry to and fro grabbing bits of sun.
When the rains come, with glee they all run for cover
 under nature's umbrella the itty bitty mushroom tree.

Nature, Feline and Fill-ins Friday

  Nature Friday host LLB Gang   Click here Hostess Miss Mimi 

What a pretty in pink Lenten rose and evergreen/baby Christmas tree.

Feline Flashback

February 16, 2014 was a Sunday

Thank you to Ellen and Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs f the fun fill-ins.. Thanks Ellen and Lorianne these were fun.  

1. The 2020 pandemic taught me to 'always' have a year's supply of toilet paper stock piled and that it is ok to wait four months for my 'monthly' hair cut.
2. A game I enjoy playing is Words with Friends. I am addicted.
3. My perfect meal would include pasta with red sauce, with or without any meat, and some sourdough or Asiago toast.
4. If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life, I would choose several: The Theme from a Summer Place instrumental or vocal, Acker Bilk Strangers on the Shore 
and Kenny G's cd Breathless.

 Thankful Thursday hosted by 


 Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 

Here is the photo challenge 

Bernie did you know, in the spring time
A young man's fancy turns to love

Bennie I'm here to tell you
your breath smells like you ate 
very old cheese.
If you want a lady's attention,
brush those teeth and please 

no more CHEESE

Our Valentine's Day Anniversary


Thank you to our Hostess

Sandee at Comedy Plus

I was almost wordless when I opened the wrapper on my Hardee's egg and cheese biscuit to find it in the shape of a HEART. Hardee's biscuits will be heart shaped at least thru today and maybe all month. 

If you are interested in the rest of the story, here it is.

My very thoughtful and loving husband went on a secret mission yesterday (2/13).  He came home with tasty sweets, lovely scented flowers and Prosecco.
YEP he is a keeper.  
We enjoyed Mimosas, cheese and crackers and chocolate covered strawberries.

Happy Tuesday with Rocky and a friend

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus  

Dearest Auntie HiC

 I was enjoying my afternoon siesta when I felt someone breathing on me! 🙀

No surprise, it was Mom hovering over me with her camera. Sheesh! 
Notice how my eyes are strategically positioned out of the sunshine, while the rest of my body is toasting? 😸

As it turns out, she was justified in disturbing me, as there was a beautiful yellow-bellied sapsucker right outside the window. 
Mom named him Woody, after another one of her favorite childhood cartoon characters. 😹

Sorry about video quality, it was taken through the screen.

Please this link 
 to read about this beautiful Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker

We saw him several times last week.

💝 Rocky, Kat, Kit and David

Dearest Rocky OMCs are you a mind reader?
Auntie was just sitting here working/thinking about next week's Happy Tuesday and up popped your ginger self and Woody Woodpecker.  I have not seen a yellow-bellied sapsucker in a very long time.  Tell Mom the video is purrfect.  
Love and many thank yous
Your devoted Auntie HiC
