Drum Roll, Please – Thankful Thursday

Last weekend we were at the local D.I. (Deseret Industries, it’s a thrift store for those that don’t know) when my nephew saw the most glorious creation. An air-pop popcorn popper. The kids are VERY good at popping popcorn on the stove. I am not so good at this and so much ask (very nicely, with maybe some bribes-er-REWARDS now and then) to have some.

We now have a popcorn popper.

And the people REJOICED! (cheers)

Check out the original Thankful Thursday. (Will update link when able.)

Just A Few Things… – Poetry Prompt #11

Go on now, don’t be late!
Right now we’ve got a small debate
On what we should in the end buy.
Could we do with a little more rye?
Even though we’re almost done
Right now we’ll get chicken to put in the oven.
Yes, my dear we’re on our way to heaven.
 
So we’ve got to go in a little while
Have lots to do going through the aisle,
Or maybe we’ll grab a bite to eat.
Please don’t forget to pick up flour!
Pick up the apples before the hour.
I know there’s still a lot left to do,
Now don’t forget to get some honey dew.
Great! It’s over! I can rest now too.

I just got back from running a few errands with one of my sisters and saw this prompt. It was Destiny, because I usually don’t go on the grocery shopping trips anymore.
