Up In A Tree

Once there was a little family that lived in a marvelous tree. The tree grew as tall as the mountains, or so it would seem.

The family was small but mighty; as Ma and Pa watched their baby grow and grow. The child would run up the trunk and down the branches. Jumping from leaf to other leaves.

One day the family noticed a new sort of leaf growing on their beloved home branch. It was round and was a sunset color. It was so still; so much so that they assumed it must not be alive. Pa thought it looked like a glorious new home for his family.

They journeyed up the branch to the strange new form. Pa tapped it, shook it, screamed and yelled at it; but there was no response. So he poked it with a stick and a squirt of juice flew out at him in the eye. Pa yelped and hid behind Ma. He thought he had injured it and it would retaliate and attack him.

Ma rolled her eyes and tasted the juice that now trickled down Pa’s face. Ma’s face radiated with happiness and delight. Pa, Ma, and child went closer to the form and put their mouths into the punctured opening. Sweet delicious juice flowed into their mouths. So all three took a side and ate their way into their new home.

The sweet juice took over their minds and bodies and made them extremely tired. Pa, Ma, and child all fell asleep in their nestled new home. Sweet, sweet slumber.

Well of course I had no knowledge of this happy little family of worms living in an apple, I so desired when I went outside. I looked up in our glorious tree and saw a delicious ripe apple waiting for me. I climbed the great ladder and I plucked it from the branch. I also bragged to my husband about finding it and not sharing. I dashed inside to wash and enjoy my greatest discovery.

Instead I cut through the apple and there sat three separate worms. Two long ones and a little baby one. Thankfully I didn’t cut through one of them or I would have given up apples for a while. Instead of just throwing the apple out, I dug the worms out of the apple and put them in our front yard where we need more worms. I also had to go outside and tell my husband what had happened, he of course laughed.

Hopefully today I can find an apple on the tree and no worms will be living inside. This time I’ll share with the husband because maybe my luck will be better.

Enjoy your weekend!! ❤️ Maybe have an apple.

He’s home again ❤️

Finally my hubby is home. He was gone for 3 days and it felt like a lifetime…but he is home safe and sound. He brought with him a new toy that will last him quite a while. Men and their vehicles…😊

It’s a strange thing but my mother and I named her white van, Bessie and I’ve always wanted to name a car. But my hubby’s cars have always been his, this one is “ours”; even though I won’t be allowed to drive it for a while. I’m fine with that, I like being the passenger… being driven around like a princess. Awesomeness!!

But we are deciding upon a name. The Beast would be good but he already as a vehicle named that, and the Beast is a sweet-sweet. I like the name ‘Big Bertha’ or ‘Burt’ just because it sounds funny and awesome at the same time. He made a face at those names. So he might name it one thing, but when I eventually drive…beware of Big Bertha or Burt!!

Home Again.

Heading back to SoCal. I’m going to miss the crisp brisk weather here. This trip felt more like home, we got various dishes we needed…like coffee mugs. Coffee is a must. But I got to designate places in the kitchen for different dishes and food, and they will stay there until we visit again.

I’m having mixed emotions again. I want to go home to mother and family. And I actually miss my job, probably because I am now okay at it. And it’s home…but here is home as well. The snow and sun air, the neighborhood of peace and quiet, the open room with many opportunities to waiting….I’m conflicted.

But for now we are heading home and we finished the trip right…Arby’s!! Deliciousness!!its our tradition…

Can’t wait to see mama ❤️

Good bye until we head homeward…sort of…
