my friends: a limerick.


Coffee when I rise and more before day’s end
A gentle breeze and flowers on growing stems
A tiny dark chocolate kiss
A good book to read is bliss
A drink, a scent, and comfort… these are my friends

        • Oh, right now… I haven’t been reading at all! Writing… and kids home for the summer… I’ve not read for a while. And what I read, well, I always expect people to laugh at me. 🙂

            Totally understand! I used to be a 3 book a week reader and I haven’t done that in about 3-4 years. After I started writing again, I stooped almost completely for a long time. Relationship, kids, house, work, writing. No time. I did recently buy several and read two of them. I’m glad I did. I forgot how much I love stories.

            I promise not to laugh! I read it have read all kind of books!

            • I used to read that much, too. I think it’s mostly the writing that has taken over because that’s what I seem to do now during the time I would have been reading.

              Well… I love romance and love stories. But not super-cheesy romance like the ones with Fabio on the cover. I need a good story to go with my love stories. For reading and writing!

  7. Well, I had lots of coffee, then a mocha later, a chocolate chip cookie after lunch, so I’m good! Today the only thing better might be Jamocha Almond Fudge ice cream *sigh*
