Interlude — House of Heart


REBLOG: Don’t miss Holly’s Beautiful poem!

In this dream I turn to you light my cigarette from the glowing tip of yours. I propose we fly away. Your dark eyes whip my mind into arousal and your elegant hand on my thigh turns me soft inside. Your breathing is a sigh against my ear that whispers my hair and crimson lips […]

Interlude — House of Heart

Rusty Knight


She had been so cold and alone, those days in the dark.
There was a sadness on her soul and also in her heart.

She looked to the stars, the moon and the sun.
Warmth had turned it’s back, she thought she was done.

A Knight appeared before her and reached out to take her hand.
He was unlike any other in this unforgiving land.

His eyes shone bright, through the armor of rust.
He was covered with honor, love and trust.

The armored arms enveloped her; strong but soft and warm.
She was safe, she was safe, she would come to no harm.

She looked up into the eyes of the Rusty Knight’s eyes of green.
Her soul was being cared for, like it had never been.

He said “Take my hand M’lady, for treasures are lain before you.”
“Treasures more precious than diamonds.  Your soul to be born anew.”

“Your soul in my care will be loved adored and cherished.
Let no dragon cross my path or it is he who will perish.”

She laid her heart at his feet and trembling, took his hand.
Her future was in his eyes, her past now a wasteland.

Out My Window


 

out my window 
the world continues
as if nothing ever happened
between us

there is no hint
of what was
left unsaid

but in
my head
and heart

'should haves'
and
'what ifs'
crowd
speculation

different choices

always in hindsight

would you change
your tune

our fitting together?

dreams take flight
piece by piece
falling to the ground

tomorrows shattered

out my window
is another day

another
rotation of the earth
for me to navigate
without you

The Deck-Something to Smile About


First of all, Thank You to Trent, who continues to remind us that there is always something to smile about!  Please take a look at his wonderful Weekly Smile HERE. 

It sure makes me Smile to see something like this finished!  My deck, pictured above is just about my favorite place to hang out.  I love to watch the different birds that come to visit and watch my little dog, Rocket enjoy His Turf.  My deck has been needing a good cleaning for quite some time.  I have also wanted to stain it. So I decided that this past weekend was the perfect time to do it!

 

The weekend mornings were blessedly cool.  So I was up bright and early putting my back into it and giving my deck a good scrubbing.  Not the best picture above.  But if you look at the color in the top part of the pic, you’ll see the beginnings of my efforts.  The deck had begun to take on that grey/black color.  Yuck.  After a good scrub, the boards looked like new!  It’s been quite warm in the afternoon, so I decided that if it was dry the next morning that I would stain it.

 

The next morning, bright and early again, I went outside and looked at my lovely, dry, clean deck.  So I set about staining it.  I chose a pretty redwood color.  In the picture above, you can see the difference between my recently cleaned boards and the new color of stain.  This is me cutting in around the edge.

And the picture above is the finished result!  It’s still wet here, but it dried nicely.  Isn’t it pretty?  I’ll just stay off of it for another day or two and it should be good to go!

This project definitely made me smile!!  So What Made You Smile This Last Week?  Come on, share and then let Trent know on his Weekly Smile post found HERE.

Doing What’s Right For All


I’ve been feeling rather Uninspired lately, as you may have noticed.  Laying low, not writing and not posting much at all.  Since my little dog, Rocket Always makes me smile, I thought photos of him were just the ticket today.

We are all inundated with news about COVID-19.  The uncertainty of these times has everyone on edge and it’s hard to find the silver lining in all of this.  I was talking to my BFF on the phone the other day and we started talking about the GOOD that we are seeing in those around us, dealing with this pandemic.  People are stepping up.  Neighbor helping neighbor.  I know those that are volunteering to run errands, shop and make home deliveries to those that can’t get out, like the elderly.  People are putting on local food drives to help those in need.  People are hearing from those that they hadn’t heard from in years, just to check in to see how you’re doing.

Politics aside, in my opinion, we have not been on a UNITED front for Any reason for a Very Long Time.  Remember all the stories you would hear about how we all came together and sacrificed for the good of ALL during WWII?  People banded together and did what was good for everyone.  Not because there was something in it for them, but because it was the right thing to do.  It’s time to do that again, folks.

I am blessed in so many ways in these turbulent times.  I have The World’s Best Boss.  He is doing everything in his power to make sure that we are all safe and taken care of.  My job is considered part of the the Construction Industry, therefore considered Essential.  So I am still working.  We are teleconferencing, etc. to maintain our distance. The office only has 3 or 4 people in it right now and we are all aware of the 6 ft. distancing thing.  We are cleaning, hand sanitizing, etc. to be as careful as we can.  So I am fine.

The only place I’ve been for weeks now is work and home, with the exception of a few walks in the park with Rocket.  So my Best Friend, Rocket has been another huge blessing in my life.  My life would be so quiet and empty without him.  He makes me smile and laugh every day.  (something that is SO needed in life right now!)  If nothing else, he’s a reason to get out of bed everyday!

Rocket is my Office Assistant and goes to work with me on most days.  This is a photo of him at the desk, hard at work.  I try to leave all of the really big decisions up to him because his judgement is always tempered with not only wisdom but compassion and love as well.

At this time, be sure to stay in touch with those you love.  Reach out, if not physically, then send a text, make a phone call, email, whatever.  Just don’t lose touch.  Be there in spirit for them.  Stay Safe, Stay United and let’s Do What’s Right for All for Us.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.  ❤ Penny
