Limerick challenge, week 46 : Over The Years!

Over the years I have read many books

Never did I read one with  so many crooks

It’s an intriguing story

It makes one feel sorry

‘A House In The Sky,’ is the title of the book!





Everyday Inspiration,Day Fourteen :Recreate a Single Day

Day Fourteen : Recreate a Single Day


It was  the 16th November, I woke up at 4 am in the morning, after brushing my teeth, I prepared myself for the morning prayer.

It took me close to a half hour to finish my prayer.After the prayer I prayed for my parents and siblings who have passed away.

It was close to 6 am in the morning, I felt sleepy, went back to bed for another hour and a half.

I woke up at 7:30 am, took care of my routine wash and went to the kitchen, waiting outside the door were the three catateers, Gabriel, Raphael and the latest edition Sophie.They seem to be saying, “It’s about time you showed up, we are starving, give us food this minute.”

“Relax,” I said, ” You Royal Felines, I have to warm up your food.”

“Do it fast, they meowed, or we’ll eat your books.”

One by one I warmed up their food, in the microwave, ten seconds each bowl. When I placed the food on the dining room floor, Gabriel meowed loud, “Not on the floor, put mine on the dining table.”

“All right your majesty I bowed I’ll place your bowl where you want it, hurry up and eat it.”

This done I had my breakfast, two slices of toast and a mug of Tetley tea, with a bit of milk and no sugar.

I went upstairs to clean their litter, which is a bit tough to do, then I disposed it off in the garbage can out in my backyard.

I came back and took a shower in the bathroom, got dressed and went to the bus stop to catch the bus which came at my stop after fifteen minutes.

It was a  cold morning, the day was dark and it was drizzling. In about fifteen minutes we arrived at the mall, I got up, thank Madame driver for her service, hopped out and went inside the mall.

Although it was only 10:00 am the mall was quite full. I took two three rounds, stopped at customer service to add ten more rides on my card.

I walked around the mall to increase the number of steps, when my Fitbit registered almost five thousand steps. I went to the bus stop to get a ride home.

I waited fifteen minutes at the stop, the route number I take was the fifth one, when it showed up I boarded the bus for my journey home. Before getting off I thanked mister driver who wished me a good day.

I came home turned on the TV watched the tennis match, the players were  UK’s Andy Murray and Japan’s Kei Nishikori. It was a tough battle in which Andy Murray claimed victory, although I wanted Nishikori to win.

The rest of the afternoon I spent taking a nap, feeding the Royals, and feeding myself.

In the evening I watched my favorite game show, ‘Jeopardy,’ and also, ‘wheel of fortune.’

It was nine pm I told the, Royal Felines , it was time to go to bed. They reluctantly stood up, and said,   “it’s time already, we aren’t sleepy?

‘Sorry Sweet hearts,’ I said, ‘But I’m more than ready to sleep, bye boys and sweet Sophie I’ll see you in the morning!’

And so ended my day without any major problem!
