Computer world

 Life is surely interesting
 as we (I) progress day to day
 and get the latest, newest, greatest
our (my) older system
chose to stop doing it's thing...

 So happily we (I) research
and locate  
just the right laptop system
 and then make our (my) purchase
 going home to  
unpack the lovely, greatest, latest...

 Exploring lots of new
 interesting, fun things  
start to transfer numerous thousands of files  
when what do we (I) consider
 but the interesting fact 
of all our (my) past year's work...

 there are two choices  
convert hundreds of files to free software version...
 OR buy the latest, greatest  
document producing software version 
we had on our (my) older computer...
catch 22 raised it's lovely serpent head...

 Life in our (my) technology world
one purchase leads to another
 leads to another,  
leads to another.... Hmmmm....
 supporting the economic  
buy mood...

Spice of life 

This is the time
 of the year when I review
& check my shelves…
My spice rack is reviewed 
and I determine
 what wonderful things…

 I need to replenish
so I can bake& cook 
those savory once a year seasonal  dishes…

 Imagine my surprise
 when I looked at the expired by date
and noted ‘use by 1980’really!

 Hmmm, I didn’t realize
 it had been that long 
since I checked my cinnamon sticks…
Must have kept ‘em because 
I also use cinnamon sticks in my recipe 
for lovely room smells… simmer in a pan of water…

Upon my stove every year 
a few cinnamon sticks, tea bags (whatever flavor I have)
 and a dash of pumpkin pie spice… seasonal room spicy smells…

Permission given 

Somehow single folks
 have the impression 
that we must not 
celebrate being just one…

Well, I’m here to say 
you have permission 
to be happy, joyful, & at peace
 with being just one…

Give yourself permission 
to be who you are 
and celebrate each day 
embracing those around you…

Thanks God for your friends, 
for your family, for each bright new day, 
for simply being who you are 
and give yourself peace of spirit…

 For God has made
 each and every one of us
as we are, as we be this very day
 so celebrate His guidance…
Give yourself something 
by embracing the person you are…
Give a small gift to yourself 
For today I choose a small cluster of roses…

they were a steal at $6! 

3: 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,  to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
 17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
 19 And  to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

Shades of autumn 
Are all around 
as we travel 
from here to there in a rush…

 Burt orange, mauve, 
bright green, muted green, yellow, 
leaves flutter all around & down… 

Life is a scenic view 
as each day brings 
new shades of color…

 Snapshots in our mind 
as we look from here to there 
up the road and around the curve…

 Autumn is one of my favorite 
times of the year 
for all the daily changes to view…

 But spring time is wonderful  
for all the beginnings of life 
for renewing and rebirth celebrated…

 Ah, but autumn is for layers 
and colors and believing in tomorrow  
and celebrating being present today…
