Writing 201 — Poetry Day 2: Combine ‘Journey, Limerick, Alliteration’

I’m really enjoying this week of poetry.  This limerick came easy for me…maybe the Irish influence 🙂

My fourth sewing tutorial is in edit and nearly ready to be published along with another recipe and my 52 weeks of photos/RonovanWrites combo post.

So many things are composing themselves in my always busy brain.  With my change of plans, we have refocused on this years garden and have just ordered some great seeds to grow veg and flowers for ourselves and for selling.  Regarding the animals, we are due a couple of our first spring kids any time in the next week or two.  The chickens are loving the extra daylight and celebrating so by giving us more eggs.

I am bouncing around in joy today after receiving a text last evening that my favorite swim pal in the world is coming to the island for the next three days with her four gorgeous children.  Got to love spring break…now bring on the sunshine.  But rain or shine, we’ll be taking a dip or two–she’s tough as nails and a great motivator!

May you all enjoy this Happy Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras wherever you are.  We’ll be having sweet potato pancakes for dinner, hopeful to be served aside some fresh fish.  Johnny and I are off to go fishing now, so with luck on our side, we will have something for the table and freezer upon return.  Take care, Melissa Xx


    • Thank you. It actually took a longer time to find the image than to write the poem. I had a specific idea in mind and was delighted when I found this.
      Maybe the course runs again after this week like Blogging 101 and 102 do? It is fun so far. We had no luck with the fishing because of the rocks being too slippery. But we’ll try again soon, and it was great just being out.

    Hope your day ended up the way you wanted it to. That man of yours sounds like one in a million, do hope your visiting friend will enjoy sharing him with you.
    Swim? February in Ireland? Indoors or out?? Wherever you go enjoy it – no teeth chattering though )

    • Ha! Johnny will enjoy the peace and quiet when I take our children over to my friends house…her dad is from the island and she has her own place to stay. He deserves it as he coaches children’s handball and soccer as well as very hands on with our five. He is a blessing to many.
      We will swim in the ocean. If there is no wind, that is the chiller. The water is bearable, the wind is not when exiting the water.
