A terminal for all blogs coming in or going out. A view into my life.
|Sinterklaas Kapoentje is December 5th in Holland. Petra explains in "Saint Nicholas and Pete" I had a Dutch friend here who celebrated it. Frances always made bags of cookies or chocolates or something. One year she gifted me "Skin so Soft" for my travels. I still have it. Frances and Tweetie from December 2008:
Leg wat in mijn schoentje,
Leg wat in mijn laarsje,
Dank je Sinterklaasje!
Saint Nicholas, Little Rascal,
Put something into my little shoe,
Put something into my little boot,
Thank you, little Saint Nicholas!
The shoes and boots became stockings in the USA.
This is the famous scene from "Miracle on 34th Street".
"Daily Flash Fiction Challenge" has 'phone, window, light...' as its prompt today. Will I remember to write? I could use the gps although the Daily Cramp 'pays' better. Oh, I have gps. It's just that if I want to make trinkets I should earn them. The 4 I made this week were 25k a piece. I need to be ready for the next sale.
"Journaling" [E] by SusanFarmer
Mini-review: A very short senryu (they're all short... *ack* says Bill-the-Cat). I don't think anything more can be done with it. I rate it a 4.2. Personally, I was a melon and sea-green child. I often use different colored pens in my journal (which I've started) writing in again. Today it's .4mm red... so thin. I also use colors in my blogs to divide sections. Oft times they reflect my mood. So I agree with the 'message'.
♥HOOves♥ made peanut brittle so I commented: "You have everyone's address, don't you? I mean to say ... it couldn't hurt making up a batch a day and sending them our way!
I 'cook' by grabbing whatever's handy. Usually two pieces of bread and whatever can't scurry away fast enough. That last piece of bologna was real s l o w last night.
Cashew brittle? I love cashews."
