Treasure Trove Thursday of a Fun Friday!! A Collage of Memes ..


Found a new meme today - Orange You Glad It's Friday! over at Life's sweets and spices.
For OYGIF, I love this color - the trees outside our home blaze for a couple of weeks in early winter before the winds take a toll on them. I am glad I caught them in their fiery best a few days ago. My little ones favorite pastime in our front yard - climbing this tree - I love that these simple pleasures of childhood are part of what they enjoy (apart from the hi-tech pleasures of today)!

For Alphabe Thursday's letter C, it is that time of the year again - well, yes, of course, Christmas is here, the season of cheer, and for me, hot chocolate too. But this year, and specifically, this week, is a cold-front here in the Bay Area - where we love the weather!
Also, I have a Holiday Collage below for my little ones and the collages go towards other memes too..


For dVerse and this week, since dVerse has decided to go the route of fifty-five shades of verse, for G-Man's Friday Flash 55 too, and for WeWritePoems where I found a delightful prompt today(a Holiday Collage - of verse)..

My Little Girl
Her eyes – that sparkle
With mischief, joy, thrill
Her caress – it soothes
All aches like magic.

Her laugh – a full hahaha
 wraps us all around
In its infectiousness
Happiness knows no bounds.

                sparkles everywhere
                a wonderland, a magical fair
                my little princess knight
                her laughter fills the air

you are my elixir of youth..my sweetness..

My Little Boy

Patient, calm, kind
Soft-spoken comes to mind
Wise soul within a child
Teacher to sis, grandmom alike.
Peacemaker you’re;
Love to be a rock-star!

In the woods - friends that fly,
On the roads - cars zoom by,
Uber-happy, you point to them,
Right with every name.

You are my tower of peace, my calm.

For  Book Beginnings: and The Friday 56:
 from 'The Humor Code' (eARC) by Peter McGraw
Book Beginnings
'We walk into the Squire Lounge just as the Denver watering hole is gearing up for its weekly open-mike comedy night. Looking around, Pete grins. "This is fantastic!"he yells over the ruckus, sounding like a field biologist who's just discovered a strange new animal species.'

Pg 56 -
'Start with attention-grabbing jokes, then put kidding aside and make your point.'

  3. laughter is a joy isn't it - and so contagious, the most communicable of afflictions - and in children the most lovely
