This time of year you can find them along roadsides….get at least ten for your house!

 Image

 

This one is on the back of my commode, but I usually place them in bowls hidden in the corners of all my rooms…

 

Image

 

See them hanging from the tree?

They will repel spiders for about 4 months.  Mice aren’t too keen on them either, so I  place one on each side of my garage door…The fresh green will turn brown and will become hard in the bowls.  
Toss them or compost them.

Wrestlin’ With A Heart Attack

Follow me on Twitter…I’m over 1000! WooHoo♫♪ @LMKazmierczak
The poem is formed to have cow horns in its midst…hope it doesn’t take away from the lyrics♫
An entry for Alphabe-Thursday letter W.  Check out the other entries!

 
Wrestlin’ With A Heart Attack

Blond and blue eyed in her jeans, gripping the wheel of her jeep,
Casting her eyes down my way, making my heart leap.
She passes by smiling, and tapping the horn, it beeps.
I’m on the side lines
with high hopes she’ll notice me.
Wrestlin’ with my heart, she hamstrings  me.
 ~
       I                                            that.
wrangle             wrangle
this, and
 
I’m                                  that.
all                        gine
a-twist. Ima-
~

 Hallways are crowded, yet I feel alone of all things.
Books by her desk, she grabs her bag by its purse strings.
She stops to talk, and I am saved by the bell, it rings.
I’m on the side lines
with high hopes she’ll notice me.
~

Wrestlin’ with my heart, she hamstrings  me.
 ~

  I                                            that.
wrangle             wrangle
this, and
 
I’m                                  that.
all                        gine
a-twist. Ima-
~
I’m wrestling with a love attack.
She has me up against my back
She’s tied my heart.  There is no slack.
My hope is, she’ll notice me.

(mixed)

So wrangle this, and wrangle that.
I think I’m whipped,

She’s tied my heart.
There’s no going back.

Obsession

OBSESSION

 

Participating in ABC Wednesday – letter O.  Be sure to check out the other participants!

Never been sure what qualifies as “New Age” music, but this seems to defy any other genre so I’m calling it a New Age instrumental ♫♪
Obsession
~
1. You are my future.
My past has been banned.
I see us together,
it’s all in my plan.
 ~
2. You hold my future.
At last you are mine.
We’ll grow old together.
We’ll have all the time.
 ~
Refrain:
Obsession is how I exist.
I live for your touch and your kiss.
 ~
3. Preoccupation is
fogging my mind.
My fragmented dreaming is
my treasure find.
 ~
Refrain
 ~
Stirring echoes of my dreams,
You are my theme
in the extreme.
 ~
4. You have your  own future.
I’m not involved.
Unfortunate timing,
my heart’s being dissolved.
 ~
Obsession is all that I have.
And that’s all I’ll take
to my grave.

Verse: The 23rd Psalm

Participating in Alphabe-Thursday.  Click on the link for more entries!
Do folks commit this verse to memory anymore?  It used to be standard♫
Here’s my meditation instrumental that follows the words of the 23rd Psalm.  Hope you enjoy.

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
~
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death
I fear no evil.
Thou art with me.
~
Thy rod and staff, they comfort me.
Thou dost prepare a table
in the presence of mine enemies.
Thou hast anointed my head with oil;
my cup o’er flows.
~
Surely goodness and mercy (loving kindness)
will follow me all the days of my life,
and I’ll dwell in the house the Lord,
dwell in the house of the Lord
forever

Nothin’ Serious

A shy little love song for your consideration♫
Sung by daughter Angela
Participating in ABC WEDNESDAY letter N…check out other N posts!

 I’m just a little bit in love with you

And I’m telling you it’s tweakin’ my heart,

Telling me to pay attention.

I won’t allow anything at all to happen.

 ~

 Just because you are a little on my mind

I can tell you that it’s nudgin’ my heart,

Causing just a small distraction.

I won’t allow anything at all to happen.

Foreign feelings are so appealing but

 

I’m tellin’ you I have everything under

my control, it’s nothin’ serious,

Nothin’ serious.

Just because I try to get close to

Steal a whiff of your skin, it’s nothin’ serious,

Nothin’ serious.

I am just a little bit in love with all you are

But I can keep it to myself and

Bother you not at all.

Nothin’ serious, nothin’ serious.

 I’m just a little bit in love with you

And I’m telling you it’s tweakin’ my heart,

Telling me to pay attention.

I won’t allow anything at all to happen.

I can’t ignore all your charm you seem to share

But I’m telling you it’s winning my heart,

I have made my own decision.

I won’t allow anything at all to happen.

Foreign feelings are so appealing but

I’m tellin’ you I have everything under

my control, it’s nothin’ serious,

Nothin’ serious.

There’s little bits of you lodging in my brain

But I say again it’s nothin’ serious,

Nothin’ serious.

Un-Tameable: Adamastos

Already at the letter U!
Participating in Alphabe-Thursday
For more on the letter U click on the link…

Some time ago, Martha Stewart’s Living Magazine had a snippet about the word Adamastos, just sounds so elegant♫
Wikipedia: from the Greek word for ‘Untamed’  or ‘Untameable’ (Adamastos).
Intrigued, I made up a tune and words, however it is quite repetitive, but fast♪

Adamastos
~
1. Never give up on love
Fragile is it made of
Hunger and thirst for love
Make it your quest to love
Try to persist for love
Reach for it from above
Lessons are learned from love
Do not resist the love
~
2. Adamastos my love
Symbolized as a dove
Endurance will evolve
As you commit to love
World without end, my love
Pursue this goal for love
Lessons are learned from love
Do not resist the love
~
Love will be the final answer
All that’s left when
~
Worlds come crashing around our towering lives.
We think that climbing the wall to success
Is all this life offers us
Never give in and don’t you ever give up on love
I’m counting on you to follow
All of your heart’s desire.
Never give up on love
Fragile it is made of
Adamastos defines the
Dogged response desired
Never give up
Depend on opening up
Your heart to love
One love. All love to love.
~
3. Never give up on love
Fragile is it made of
Hunger and thirst for love
Make it your quest to love
Try to persist for love
Reach for it from above
Lessons are learned from love
Do not resist the love.
~
Adamastos.

Motivations

 
Another instrumental…
a bit on the murky side since the beat over shadows the lyric lines, but hopefully you get the idea♫♪
 
For ABC WEDNESDAY letter M
 
 
Motivations, motivations.
 
You
need to examine your ideals
And motivations.
Do you
want a wife to your share your meals
and shoulder your financial deals?
 
Do you
See me as your obligation?
For motivation?
Am I
Some sort of duty to fulfill
Or are your feelings for me real?
 
Chorus:
Here’s the thing
I’m in the program.
I can see that it’s true.
I like who I am when I’m around you.
I’m convinced by your clean slate eyes,
(Motivations)
Love is the reason that I’m in your life.
 
Maybe
You like to have me ‘round for fun~
Your motivation.
My
Past does not seem to interfere
With your intentions that is clear.
 
Chorus
Motivations
Chorus (2X)
