"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

a fall-ish riddle

What's round of face with red-ish bloom
Sporting top-ish leaf-ish plume
Sweet of taste with tart-ish tones
to satisfy my growl-ish moans!

Blessings, Debbie


  1. A smallish sphere of red or green
    With bits of yellows in between
    A crunch
    A pop
    A splash of juice
    I think it's apples that you mean.

  2. Sweet!
    I love my apples this time of year! Do you visit an apple farm, Debbie?

  3. Hey - you collect rolling pins, I guess!!

  4. I love your poems! I think this is my favorite, as I have a deep, animal love of apples!

  5. Love your cute poem. Nice apples. JB

  6. so creative girl..and I am wanting to find apples...we don't have many around here..enjoy

  7. Apples are such lovely things - can't eat them raw but love them just the same.

  8. Cute! I made apple streudel muffins Sat. The house smelled sooo good! What is your favorite apple? I like Fuji and Gala.

  9. So glad you are back, Debbie! I would keep checking in from time to time while you were "away".

    Your girls are lovely.

    Wishing you a successful school year. It does take sheer determination at times, and understanding friends.

  10. Nothing like fresh picked apples...those look delicious!

  11. I steal the apples from next door. Not really steal them, because I've been invited. But still, I am hunting on land not of my own, and feel like a small animal, foraging. The apples aren't cared for - and so are riddled with tunnels and pocked with bites of - what, I wonder? Most go to the horses. But once in a while there is one that is fit to eat - and right away. So i know the answer to your riddle well.
