P to U, Thank You

P is for Paul , celebrating my birthday with me. Q is for a quilt-looking sea turtle large beach towel my sister sent me as a birthday gift. I love it. It will be perfect for Hawaii. R is for a relaxing day off with my grandson accessible via face time. He is playing with a filter here, a sparkly face mask? S is for my silly grandson. Here, he makes me laugh. T is for digital toys using the screen. If it's grandma on the other side of the screen, I think, we can allow more time. U is for just the two of us. My grandson is not too happy with the news that the new sibling will be a girl. I am trying to bank some just to two of us time, for in four months, we will be busy with a baby. V is for my forever valentine , birthday, and all holidays date who is also my foodie buddy.   W is for the wonderful cartoon filters that remove wrinkles automatically. :)


Sometimes I take for granted some simple things
Comes Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring
The roof, the heat, the shelter I live in
The security I got used too, all comforting

Last night I awoke not from the smoke
From a deep sleep, my slumber suddenly broke
The fume, overwhelming, gave me an ache
In my head, that is, I could not take

I was nauseous too, as I went downstairs
I saw my teen spray painting by the furnace
It is winter night so it’s on too
I caught her in time, we could have . . . whew

The house could have blown up, but it did not
We are alive, so I thank God
We have a house, though not a lot
We are all safe and that’s enough

(And just in case you wonder . . . a “fine” scolding, my daughter got)


  1. I sure am glad the painting by the furnace didn't cause a big problem. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
