    Thank you for the life raft of Twiglets. From the Covid hotbed that is Tennessee, may you have a joyous finale to this mess of a year. Stay warm, stay hydrated, and steer clear of mutants. See you on the upside. b.

    1. I’ll give it my best, b. I’m up to my little alligator logo in mucky mire (rain for 10-days now), variant C-19.2 mutants, and another complete lockdown come the end of the month. I’d say this virus will be the death of me, but I might be tempting fate in doing so. And The Mister has taken over cooking Christmas dinner. I’m redundant.

  2. Egg citing psalms

    I got me an egg
    The egg pleased me
    I cracked my egg
    under yonder tree.

    And the egg taught this song to me

    I got a tin hat
    The hat pleased me
    I tootled my hat
    with the symphony

    And the hat went tootle-ootle
    And the egg taught this song to me

    I got me a lute
    the lute pleased me
    I plucked my lute
    under yonder tree

    And the lute went pick-my-pocket
    And the hat went tootle-ootle
    And the egg taught this song to me

    I got me a harp
    my harp pleased me
    I strummed my harp
    under yonder tree.

    And the harp went gliss-en-dough.
    And the lute went pick-my-pocket.
    And the hat went tootle-ootle
    And the egg taught this song to me

    I got a pipe
    My pipe pleased me
    I peeped my pipe
    under yonder tree

    And the pipe went Peter, Peter
    And the harp went gliss-en-dough.
    And the lute went pick-my-pocket.
    And the hat went tootle-ootle
    And the egg taught this song to me

  3. May all the bright lights of hope of every way that peoples celebrate shine brightly.
    Thanks to all the Twigs, and to all those who shared their verses.
    May the New Year bring us all closer to the vaccines that might bring us closer to all that was lost so we might find it all again…

    Misky ~ we’ve had some odd warm late autumn days where some of my spring bushes bloomed! But some chilly ones too. The last left us with about 8 – 10 inches of snow and some bone chilling weather. My state has gone on lock-down at least until Jan 4th. I fell like I’ve not seen enough of some family and perhaps too much of some others… I still do most of the cooking. But I do get some help now and again. My hubby isn’t retired yet (though he has been working from home). He is off for the rest of this year. And maybe working from home through March as his place of business is getting a face lift.

    I’m still plodding along on my little series. Not sure if I can fit in a cracked egg with music, but one never knows…

    Everyone ~ Take care, stay healthy and sane. Sending best wishes from my little corner of Pennsylvania.

    1. My hellebores are blooming, so their common name “Christmas Rose” is appropriate. I love to see them blooming at this of year – the garden is so drab and soggy during an English winter. Merry Christmas, Jules, and stay well and safe.
