End of the day fruits
Lemon, tangerine, and peach
All senses well fed

“And, after all, what is a lie? ‘Tis but the truth in a masquerade”

Inspired this week by OSIbadge‘s prompt of

Disguise

Removing the mask
Of the life I was caught in
Liberating me
****
Behind the disguise
Was much hope, love and laughter
Released last night – Free

An unraveling
Twisted threads of feelings
Unwind into naught

Fall, Frenzy, Fantastic, Friday!

image

Been missing my blog
And visiting everyone
Moving is crazy
Fall has begun now
In spite of hundred degrees
Weather is fickle
Busy we’ve been here
Almost frenzied you could say
Sneak peak is right here
Coming this weekend
For you friends of the den
A contest we’ll have
Your chances to win
A lovely fall prize to be had
Check back for the launch!

Avast, me hearties

Today be Talk Like A Shipmate Tide,* t’ me, th’ harbingers o’ th’ celebrations o’ Fall. Me favorite time o’ voyage. This voyage I be hopin’ t’ really decorate up fer Fall an’ Halloween, but I may be a tad bit busy:

You’ll be shocked t’ know
Big changes be a’comin
Can ye say new house?

New t’ us at least
A very, very fine house
An’ ‘t has a YARD

After carefully following Wacky Mommy’s house hunting advice (who would have thunk a house that comes with its own live-in homeless person is worth LESS than others?), we made an offer on a home. Yes, a home. For me. And my family. Offer accepted and in 30 days we should commence operation Vixen’s Den Transplantation v3.0

We chose it because:

  • It has a yard. Have any of you tried to live with four people and four dogs without a yard? If yes, you have my deepest sympathies.
  • The living room is not flanked by a large parking lot and people can’t look in my windows.
  • There is a yard. Front and back. Ladybug can run and jump and play.
  • A garage! A cute, adorable one car garage for Mr. Vixen to get all his tools out from storage.
  • No one lives on top of me. Most especially no one that seems to be flaying alive her children (just a wild guess based on their bloody screaming).
  • Did I mention that it has a yard? With a fence? Trees? Like an “I can now plant a garden kind of yard”?
  • It is still only two bedrooms, about the same square footage we are in now. But we are outside people and spend most of our time on our balcony. And now we have a yard we can be in AND a big screen room!
  • We will pay less towards the mortgage than we are paying to rent right now. Because it was cheap. As in bank owned cheap.

Horribly Hirsute

It returns again
A single, dark hair on my chin
Only to be plucked

Another Day

image

It’s hard to believe
That lives keep on moving on
While mine stands so still
*
My mind is quiet
Almost expectant I’d say
Unsure what’s to come
*
Watching them in pain
Is the hardest part to bear
Mom can’t kiss better
*
How can I mend them
Piece of their hearts missing
My glue not enough
*
I can’t imagine
How time will ease suffering
No one prepared us
*
We stumble blindly
A fog of grief and despair
While the world spins by
*
Reality still
Has not touched me yet, as I
Still expect him home

Houston, We Have Re-Entry

Dearest Nannygoat,

You looked so surprised
To see me standing there still
I’ll ALWAYS be there

Welcome back
Love, Mom

One Nation In Struggle

image

It’s Friday again
And it has been a long week
Surviving was key
Key to what, you say?
And that I don’t know for sure
Lost sight of the prize
So hands on the wheel
Keep straight on the path of life
Is all I can do
Heading is unknown
Just following the white line
To see where it leads
So many people
Around me are struggling too
Suburban combat
How’d we get to here
Where hard workers now suffer
And scramble to win
Call it what you will
May be a recession or
Just a depression
No matter the tag
Consequences are for all
Humanity = one
What good are leaders
If they don’t see their people
Or notice their plight
Words and ideas
Don’t put food on the table
Action is called for
Political shame
Covers both sides of the fence
Reality lost
Their lack of conduct
Leaves the planet in peril
At risk and alone
My voice is but one
Not loud or even noticed
But I call them out
Provide for your kin
Stop governing for money
And DO something now
Or pack up your bags
Go home, head hung in shame
Return your stipend
Someone new will come
Is my fervent wish and hope
Inaction no more

Available for Nose Transplant

Two weeks I have fought
Yet this cold is kicking my ass
I surrender now
Pain in the sinus
I know it is infection
Am in denial
Would hit up the doc
30 bucks is all I got
Till the next payday
Will use it for gas
And just hope/pray for the best
In regards to schnozz
