like a knife
I am broken.
things begin with anticipation
and ever growing expectation
then meet the stark realization
of being me
the problem isn’t you
you never were to blame
all that ever was wrong
is caught inside the frame
of being me
things implode in great frustration
and ever building aggravation
only to be stuck in evasions
of being me
the problem is so clear
the solution simple
there remains no sense
in the continuation
of being me.
i write words that NoOne sees
that then softly NoOne reads
NoOne sings them right out loud
in the silence of NoOne’s room
each sweet note
and off the walls
NoOne picks them up again
puts them back where they belong
Then NoOne sings them one more time
until SomeOne smartly comes along
telling NoOne that their singing’s wrong.
NoOne is all silent now
because SomeOne’s words
just stole her song.
A friend of mine has just launched a Tictail online store for her hand-made one-of-a-kind jewelry and I helping promote her efforts. Please go take a look – and pass on the link to anyone that you think might be interested in her creations!
Okay, beautiful people of facebook. It’s that time of year – I need support. If you were thinking of sprucing up your jewelry closet, now is the time. Do you have a special event to go to? Perhaps you have a date coming up. Or you have a job and want to look prettier than your co-workers. Or there is a girl you’re trying to impress. (you could always win a girl’s heart with lovely jewelry.) Or you know someone who needs your support as she tries to get her little teeny weeny business off the ground. (Me! ) Whatever the case, I would really appreciate your help. And that’s that. Happy Thursday to all!
The wonder of this time of year is how much food can be squeezed into a refrigerator, and how much food I can consume without trying!
I seem to have extra sour cream and since I have been making soup – what every soup needs is a nice freshly baked biscuit. And I love sour cream biscuits. Simple and easy to make – and helps get rid of that sour cream sitting in my fridge.
(My soup recipes are: Prime Rib, Turkey)
2 cup white flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 425°F
Mix dry ingredients thoroughly in a bowl.
Use a pastry cutter to blend.
Add the shortening and cut shortening until mixture has course pea-sized texture.
Add the sour cream and cut mixture until it is course crumbs.
Knead dough 6 to 8 strokes; if dough is too dry and not binding together, slowly add a bit of water a teaspoon at a time.
Roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. Fold in half. Roll out again and fold in half, and half again.
Now roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and cut biscuits;
bake on greased cookie sheet 10 to 15 minutes (until desired golden brown on top)
Let cool a few minutes – and then enjoy!
Not only excellent with soup but also really tasty with butter and strawberry jam.
