In response to the one-word prompt : Exposed
I pity the photographers like me,
Like all I bought a camera you see.
I was thrilled when I took a shot,
Of our pretty feline believe it or not.
My daughter checked it while lying in bed,
‘Mom it’s over exposed,’ she laughed and said!
I was glad our dear Sophie was only a feline,
Or who knows how she’d react I can’t define.
In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Baby
When we got our baby feline she was eight weeks old,
She was cute, she was cuddly and a joy to behold.
She was so scared of our felines,
One look at them caused her to hide ‘n whine
In shape and size she could fit in my palm
I thought Raph and Gabe would do her no harm
One day I noticed she was pooping on our bed
What if it continues I had a feeling of dread
My daughter said, ‘Mom something is wrong,
I must find out it won’t take too long.’
What we found out was strange indeed,
The litter box was blocked by our Siamese breed!
Think of what you wanted to accomplish last week.Did you?What are the things that hold you back from doing everything you’d like to do?
I wasn’t able to work on a different theme, I could not make up my mind what would be the best, while I was thinking the time passed me by. I realized there are so many hours in a day,during these hours, I have prayers to take care of, cook food, eat , feed the felines, if there is a delay in their feeding time one of them looks me in the eye and tells me, I am forgetting my responsibility. He is very vocal about it.
The fact of the matter is there is only twenty-four hours in a day. I have to sneak in an hour for entertainment, during this time I watch two game shows,”Wheel of Fortune” and “Jeopardy.”
When I subtract all the times for my extra-curricular activities from 24 hours, I’m left with two measly hours which for me is not enough for blogging 101.
Did I forget to mention I also need to sleep or my brain will shut down? Oh my online course completely slipped my mind, this also takes some thought to answer one question out of four. I wonder how I took care of so many things when I was in school.In fact I had to answer six out of ten questions in my final exams in four hours, back then I didn’t even use up all my hours, I was able to answer six questions without any problem.
It’s not the same now, you can give me a week I’ll still be dawdling. I think there are too many distractions these days, like my favorite tennis player Roger Federer is playing I have to watch seriously how he is playing, I say a little prayer for him to be successful,then there is my not so favorite one I try to jinx him so he loses and the field is open for my favorite player, who I hope would take advantage of the situation.
All these extra activities of mine takes away time I do not have. I end up not getting my assignment done. Come to think of it. It sure is an ‘Obstacle Course.’
It’s Valentine’s Day,so write an ode to someone or something you love.
This one is for our feline, Raphael:
Raphael my dear,
How I loved watching you grow
From a kitten to a cat.
You are adorable
Most of the time,
Not so much when you
Make a hole in my mattress.
I show my anger
I spray you with water
You never complain,
You show your affection
By rubbing my feet.
You are my favorite feline!
Someone or something you can’t communicate through writing( a baby, a pet, an object), can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?
This is what I’ll tell, Raphael and Gabriel, our two feline pets:
Look at me Raphael and Gabriel, today I want you to be very good boys.
1. You must not try to open my closet and pull my clothes down on the floor.
2. You will get one treat if you behave.
3. If you sleep all morning I will give you moist food.
4. If you stay awake you will only get dry food.
5. Do not jump on the piano, your claws are too sharp you will make scratch marks.
6. you can go to the window and look out.
7. You are good boys I will give you an extra treat.
8. Do not eat paper , Rafa it’s not good for you.
These are a few things I tell them every day, if they know what I’m saying it’d be great even if it’s only for a day.
