Winter wonderland

In winter I'm rounder
and fatter than before.
I'm wearing coats and sweaters
and woolen hats galore.
My hands are as plump as kittens
when I'm wearing winter mittens.
My legs in thick, snug snow pants
look like an elephant's.
Indeed, I must confess
that when I do undress,
I feel as small and light
as a bird flown out of sight.

my Cats tail

This tail,
for your info,
is not to be stepped on.
I don't care what you were doing,
you should have been careful. Of course I'm down
here - a cat must inspect the drawers
at all times - it's my job!
Now watch out for
this tail!

blue roses

Long before Autumn,
Long before June,
I sent you blue roses
Beneath a white moon.

a gray day today
a gray day
done come my way
a little bit foggy
and rain
a little bit soggy
but i ain't blue
whatcha' gonna' do
i ain't goin' insane
ain't gonna' be mundane
ain't feelin' no heart pain

and though this day is gray
i remember yesterday
it was sunny
skys were blue
ain't it funny
whatcha' gonna' do
somedays are just that way
and somedays are gray

gotta' take the rain
with the sun
gotta' take the pain
with the fun
no need to go insane
no need to run

ya' can't appreciate
the darkness
'till it's too late
can't know it's starkness
until there's no light
until the day
is night
until the day is gray
until the Sun's passed away

a gray day today
a gray day done come my way
but that's OK
there's always another day

2 ladies

2 old ladies always at my side
for sixteen years my friends
i hope they will stay  a while

They like my quilts
sit on top of my work
help me were ever they can

I love these old ladies
my true lovely friends
always at my side

lets start again

slowly and with more care making Klosjes,,    Spools  ,,,
I was not neat enough sometimes that is my problem
I go to fast and want to much so I make mistakes
And that takes more time I know I know
maybe if I grow up and old enough ,LOL.
I do it the first time right
so lets start again


November is here lots of rain and wind 
but also many festivities in the 2 months to come
we have Sinterklaas
He arrived yesterday a great day for the children

A ROSE, as fair as ever saw the North,
Grew in a little garden all alone;
A sweeter flower did Nature ne'er put forth,
Nor fairer garden yet was never known:
The maidens danced about it morn and noon,
And learned bards of it their ditties made;
The nimble fairies by the pale-faced moon
Water'd the root and kiss'd her pretty shade.
But well-a-day!--the gardener careless grew;
The maids and fairies both were kept away,
And in a drought the caterpillars threw
Themselves upon the bud and every spray.
God shield the stock! If heaven send no supplies,
The fairest blossom of the garden dies.

Rag Doll

The Little Rag Doll
Sally sat in a corner, a pretty Rag Doll
Molly loved her, Sally was hers, but once, Sally fell
Mother picked her up and loved Sally's frill a lot
'Ah! so nice for my little Jill' she thought
Mother mended little Jill's hem
using Sally's frill
It did look cute as Jill's white lace
But Sally was sad to lose her face
And now Molly did not think Sally was a gem
So she threw Sally
Behind her alley
Sally cried silent tears huddling naked washed with fright
in that empty can of Sprite
Jill picked her up and thought her dress was bright
It would make a pretty sight
when she cut her up and used her
to stuff her little Rag Doll.
