Rhinoceros (FOWC)

It’s quite preposterous
For a rhinoceros
To live inside
And try to hide
It is quite a site
Late at night
When it’s time for bed
And he hasn’t been fed
He will use his horn
To get some corn

It’s quite preposterous
To have a rhinoceros
As a house pet
There is no vet
That would make a house call
Should he happen to fall
And he will not share
When you want on the stair
For he fills up the space
Of the entire place


Written for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) – preposterous


Monochrome Monday – Peaceful

This week my cat takes the spotlight.  She is the hardest cat to get to sit still for a picture.  She knows the second that camera or phone is in your hand and she moves.  In this one she was curled up on my lap next to my laptop.  I hope you all have a great week!  (((HUGS)))

Happy and Grateful – Day 315

November brings a chill in the air and the start of the holiday gatherings of family and friends.  I can’t believe I am down to the last two month of my challenge to find happiness and feel gratitude every day.  I hope you join with me in the comments or your own blog in this challenge.  No matter how small there is always a little good in even the worst day.

It was a little warmer today but we still were stuck in the clouds.  Tonight there is a cold rain.  I am still fighting my depression.  Tried to write some of it out this afternoon and that helped some.  The damp air is not helping my fibro but this too shall pass.

I had a pretty quiet afternoon but I did play some music to try to help me out of my mood.  I listened to some music online and I am grateful I have access to so much music.  It doesn’t cure anything but it can soothe a troubled mind some.

My happiness from the day came from having my cat cuddle with me today.  It seems more often now she “knows” when I am feeling down and will jump in my lap to sleep and purr.  I still miss my other cat terribly on days like this.  He was my shadow and was always there for me, but the princess is learning.

I need to try to make this an early night, plans for tomorrow morning.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!

Day 14 – 100 Days of Happiness

This morning I woke up with a lot on my mind.  The wheels started spinning before I even really had my eyes open.  One of the wonderful gifts of dealing with anxiety.  But as I woke up and took in the surroundings I felt the warmth of a friend.  Curled up next to me was my cat (well actually my daughter’s cat, but she can’t have pets at her apartment).  I still miss my cat Stumpy who passed away earlier this year.  Chevy is not as much of a cuddly cat but she can have her moments.  This morning was one of those precious moments.  It helped to calm me a little to just pet her and look at how peaceful she was (unlike at 2am when her running races and jumping and climbing fits happen).  I think any pet can give us so much with the unconditional love they share.  What a happy way to start the day…
