*We were already out walking as these thoughts came to mind this morning.
It’s -6 c here right now. That pic is one I took of Tim last winter. He’s started wearing his combat coat again this past couple of weeks. Cute eh …lol
In that half awake
half in dreams realm
where everything is real
(or so it seems)
a child wanders
here, there and, everywhere
There are no borders
no walls or fences to divide
to keep people in or, to
keep people out
Everyone is happy
for the monsters who live
under the bed
hide behind curtains
or, who peep through the windows
that’s what monsters do
They arrive at night
to frighten you.
In that hazy fog of half-remembered
I could swear in all the yearning
(substitute that for dreams)
knowing for certain if I swing
my arms round and around
in circles at my sides
for long enough and, run as fast
as I possibly could
slowly, I would begin
to lift at first
then, to float
finally, to leave the ground behind
and as long as my arms
*I’m trying to decide whether to take my iPhone 4s apart so that I can teach myself how to put a new screen on it and then can do it for other people, for a fee. Not an easy decision to make when you know it’s worth over $400 if you mess it up but .. ..the only way to learn is… to do.
It’s how I learned everything I know about repairing & programming computers.
So, I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for the task, I truly love taking things apart but, have to know I can put them back together again and still be working….LOL
I took that picture of the iPhone a short while ago to show the weather here today…rain and, tomorrow the temps drop and we get our first snow of the year, dropping 10 degrees by Monday and more snow. (Yuck)
“He’s sitting in his boat staring at me as I walk by. Perv!”
“It’s a dummy.”
“No… it’s him!”
“Have a closer look, silly.”
“I think he may be dead. I’m not going near there!”
“You were right…it is a dummy. Duhhh.”
When she was younger, our neighbour down the road from us once had a small row boat in his front yard. The pic isn’t the actual boat but, I used it to show what I mean. His yard was quite large and the boat was some way back from the road. As I drove up it, from a distance, I thought he was sitting in it wearing a bright yellow plastic raincoat with the hood up. Slowed down to see it was a very realistic seated mannequin.
Chloe saw it when she came home from school. But as usual, she was always in such a rush, she raced by and was so freaked out thinking it was the neighbour watching her. She actually asked me if I thought he was dead. LOL I convinced her next time she passed to take a better look.
She came home soooooo sheepish the next day…..LOL
