Getting Warmer

My poor hands are always cold
Forever turning white or blue
Alas, my woes do not end there
For my feet are icy, too.

Because I am so frosty
Nobody wants to touch
They say “Stay away from me!”
“Icicle hands!” and such…

But there is a silver lining
That makes it seem less dire
For I do enjoy warming up
In front of a toasty fire.

I’ll Be Good!

Won’t you let me come inside?
I swear, there won’t be trouble
Just open up the door for me
Please do it, on the double!

Trixie at window

I promise not to make a mess
I promise I’ll be good!
I just want to be with you
Like any puppy would   💚

Storage Addiction

My name is Kathy, and I have
Quite the storage addiction
Everywhere around my house
Are signs of this affliction…

You don’t have to look far
All around, you will find
Boxes, baskets, racks
And tubs of every kind.

Linen cupboard, pantry,
The space below the stairs,
Bathroom, laundry, office –
Storage “solutions” everywhere!

I even have tubs “under bed”
How many, I won’t mention
(If buy more storage stuff
There may be an intervention!)

 

What Spring Brings

Spring flowers sure are beautiful
The colours and scents do please
I wish I could enjoy them more…
But all I do is sniff and sneeze!

I love to walk on sunny days
But with spring, I have issues
For I am left with itchy eyes
And my nose buried in tissues.

It’s a shame that such beauty
Brings with it such trials
Oh, to enjoy this season
Not with sniffles, but with smiles.
