Just Fiddling Around

Life has surprises

Sometimes we just need

To Doodle a Poodle

Senryu

Today was one of those lazy days for me. It was chilly, windy, rainy outside and that just made me want to stay inside, sit on the couch and draw or read.

I ended up doodling, on my phone, which I don’t often do, but found it quite enjoyable today.

Years ago when my grand-kids were all littles and the four of them we’re having breakfast at my house I invented a game to keep them focused while eating. We all loved to eat toast with jelly in the mornings so I asked them to each come up with a name for the shape of their toast after they took a bite or two out of it. We all came up with some amazing shapes of dogs, cats, people, etc that caused many laughs and memories. It got to be a fun tradition which they remember to this day even though they are all grown up.

So today as I was eating my toast and jelly for breakfast I tried it again just for fun and got a shape which I thought looked like a dog’s head.😊 I snapped a picture and ended up doodling it into a poodle, which I will be sharing with the grand-kids via phone message later today. 😊

You just never know what life will bring you each day!

Today even though it was stormy outside and I was disappointed with the weather because I had wanted to go to Free senior day at the local zoo but didn’t because of the rain, wind and cold, I had a fun day inside creating memories.

Hope you did also! 😊

Thoughts rolling around wildly

Chaos replaces status quo

Apple cart upset

Senryu

“upset the apple cart” meaning: wreck an advantageous project or disturb the status quo.

The use of a cart piled high with apples as a metaphor for a satisfactory but possibly precarious state of affairs is recorded in various expressions from the late 18th century onwards.

A Fool Says:

Joker, altered playing card
Altered playing card ATC BY Leona J. Atkinson 2019

Speaking diddly from

A heart filled with jesting

Foolish abandon

Only fools say in their hearts,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!

Grand-daughter, her boyfriend and I enjoyed a fun night of music in the park and a Classic Car Show. Grand-daughter brought her ‘85 RX-7 to show off 🙂 and we got to listen to our favorite country music singer too. I love Summer!!
