Thundersnow and Frankenflakes

Here’s a poem I wrote to help you stay warm…

Thundersnow and Frankenflakes

Thundersnow and Frankenflakes. How much havoc Winter makes. No sooner does the nighttime fall, than down more inches, igloo walls. My driveway’s frozen; pipes near-cracked. And, down another tree branch…Thwack!

‘Twas fun the first time and the twelfth. It’s time this snow biz hit the shelf. My blower’s blown. The roads are dicey. My heating bill is beyond pricey. It’s kind of fun to whine, I suppose. We’re lucky; some have toes that froze. Off to sleep another night. Tomorrow’s fresh coat will be bright…

It’s the little things

It's the little things

Tonight’s conversation in my head started out like this..

“Do I keep the tangled mess of cheap green ornament hangers that I just wrestled from the Christmas tree, or just chuck them in the garbage and spend a buck next November and start fresh?”

Every year that I toss the tangled green mass of hooks into a ziploc bag, I set in motion a micro-dread feeling that persists, albeit under the radar, the whole year through. The dread diminishing the fun of ornament hanging with the unpleasant chore of untangling that wire mess. “But I’m recycling,” try to convince myself. It’s a Catch-22 and the only thing I’ve caught is a no-win dilemma.

But then it hits me…

I could come up with a cool storage hack that would alleviate the stress of the tangled mass. I could then post the solution, all while feeling good about my green recycling self. Maybe my ornament hanger solution could save the world in the tiniest way! If even one less family lost a second of precious memory – making time fussing over the green wire mess, I would be a Pinterest hero!

Okay maybe it’s not that earth-shattering. Then it hit me.…

It’s the creation of solutions to make life’s hassles less hassling that makes me feel best. It’s why I love organizing, arranging, setting up things and resources and ideas for better living. This is my calling. So off I went, conjuring a solution to neatly store the green ornament hangers. I envisioned my husband’s delight next year, when upon opening the ornament box to begin the ceremonial trimming of the tree, he would exclaim, “Honey, You make Christmas great!” Well, that may not happen, but I surely will smile with a sweet satisfaction, knowing that I took a little bit of time to make life easier, and it didn’t cost me a thing. I think that this is the type of habit the very wealthy people have… taking care of the little things, so the big things take care of themselves.

Plus I’ll have another dollar in my pocket.

From 2013 to 2014 – A Poem

Here’s a poem to help you ring in the new year:

Selfie!

From 2013 to 2014

We made it through twenty-thirteen, and oh what a year it has been.

We smashed record markets and shook faith in Target, and tried our best to go green. We had too much of Miley and Beck and O’Reilly, but thankfully Colbert between. Harlem shook proudly while K-Pop played loudly, and Lorde promised she’d be our queen. While Dennis took trips, Rubio took sips, and that Toronto guy seemed kind of mean.
Yes, 2013 was a sign of the times.
While we cried for Mandela, we saw some strange signs. Sharknados and selfies took much of our time, and Nelly crossed over a two-state line. We pinned no-bake pie pics and bathroom designs, and discovered local vineyards making must-try wines.
Who knows what the new year ’14 will bring? At least we can say there’ll be new techy things. Driverless cars will soon be the norm. It won’t be long now until they chase the storms. The drones may deliver our latest must-haves, and the hormones may finally be pulled from our calves. Whether cameras in our glasses or phones in our rings, to one dear thought I feverishly cling.
It’s a hope that only one source can bring…
That source is my Family, my Faith and my Friends. The one true connection that need never end.
Enjoy the fresh slate that 2014 brings, Everyone! Continue reading
