NaPoWriMo: Day 29: It’s All in My Head

I’ve been out of touch. Tied up in family and by infection.  Yes, the two take me in ways unrelated and yet the same.  Love is infectious, after all.  But enough about where I’ve been for the last few days. Today’s prompt is waaay to complicated for me, so I’m going it on my own.  This poem is prompted by the evolution of daily care.   It’s All in My Head Wash and Condition, Gel and Blow. Pluck the Cat Whiskers, Netty the Nose. Brush, Stimulate, and Floss. Now Scrape the Tongue. Straighten and Gloss. Two levels of Moisture: With…

Hip, Hippie, Hipster. Isn’t It Ironic?

Saturday, Loved One and I had our annual Halloween Party with the grand-kids.  Duckie had the idea 10 years ago, and it evolved to a tradition. This year, 13-year-old Elaine came in a black shirt and pants, a pink cape and a black hat.  The kind Justin Timberlake wears in his “Suit and Tie” video That song makes me think he’s ready to have children.  Plus, I like the line that goes something like, “so thick, now I know why they call it a fattie.” —  I could love a man like that, and he can dance, too. Ahhh… I…

Happiness, Movement, and a Coke: The Real Thing?

Yesterday, I saw a CNN report on Coca-Cola.  Today, NPR covered Coca-Cola’s anti-obesity, “Happiness is Movement” campaign.   I guess Coca Cola got left behind in the emerging beverage race, and it now catching up. A couple of health factoids about me: I feel better when I exercise; I’m not all that consistent. I’ve been a calorie counter for years. I’m overweight, with a BMI of 25.9.

Photo Friday: Anderson Japanese Garden

This week, after visiting Duckie’s doctor, we visited Anderson Japanese Garden. Soooo much fun. And sooo nice to get a break from the 90 degree heat. One set of grandchildren (5) and my other daughter, Beanie, joined Loved-One and me. We fed the koi, and the baby duckies. We walked the shady paths and “meditated” in the zen gardens. The kids’ favorite: the Fairy Butts. Mine: listening to children banter with each other, and Love-One making like Pinnochio. The pictures are quite dappled and shadowy. Shade can do that.
