A Bit of This and That

Good morning (afternoon/evening), friends! Here’s my random post for this Friday…it is Friday, right?! My days and times get so mixed up.

My son is fascinated by accents, as am I. Truth be told I’ve always been a bit jealous that I don’t have one. Although, maybe to others, I do? Anyway, my son has a report he’s working on at school that led him to want to try speaking in a British accent. To YouTube we went…so many great teaching videos on there. I think I need more practice. I sound ridiculous, I’m sure. Any suggestions?

As I was heading to pick the kids up from school yesterday, I saw a power wheelchair stopped in the bike lane. Wanting to make sure someone wasn’t stranded in need of help, I glanced over. The chair was empty. Looked over past the sidewalk and a man appeared to be relieving his bladder against the wall. I thought for just a second about calling it in, but I don’t want someone to end up with a sex offender title simply because they couldn’t hold their pee. I hope I made the right decision.

This morning on my way home from dropping the kids at school, I witnessed a poor bird die. He fluttered real hard into the street and when I got a better look, he’s wings looked very damaged. He probably had been hit by a car. I wanted so bad to help it, but it was impossible without causing a car accident. In my car mirror, I saw the little thing struggling to get out of the road, and then it suddenly went very still. I felt so bad for it. It also made me think about how much I don’t ever want to die alone.

Pain this week has been absolutely horrible. I am fed up, but I have to keep going. Tomorrow and Sunday, we are having our craft sale. I have a feeling Monday and Tuesday will be spent trying to recoup from the pain this weekend will bring. I’ve been using the CBD oil, but haven’t really noticed any changes so far. From my understanding, it may take a while. I’ve been very good about taking my antidepressant on time every night, so my mood has been pretty stable. I’m still taking Hydrocodone for pain relief, but I’ve been on it so long that it doesn’t work as well as it used to. I’m thinking about trying hypnotherapy next. Has anyone tried this for pain relief?

I know that I write and post my poems on here once in a while, but I do not consider myself a poet by any means. I know there are many forms of poetry, but if you ask me what I write in or what my favorite style is, I’ll probably just shrug, smile and say, the rhyming kind? That being said, I would like to become a better writer and I am open to constructive criticism. Don’t be shy.

Well friends, that’s all for now. I wish you all a wonderful weekend. 😊

With love,

  2. I am not an expert on poetry but I do,know that I love your poetry. It’s funny like probably every country even British has so many different local accents. Mine is Yorkshire, a little bit like Sean Bean. I think Robert Downey Jn did a good old English accent in Sherlock Holmes. So sorry the pain continues. Sending you hugs.

    1. Thank you so much. That’s kind of my understanding too. I met a lovely woman today at the bank who is from England. I told her she has a beautiful accent and she said I did as well. I guess that answers my question about whether or not I have an accent, ha! I admit, I had to look it up, but I like Sean Bean’s accent. What I learned from our YouTube lessons: either pronounce the ‘t’ or leave it out; don’t pronounce the ‘er’, and call everyone ‘mate’.
      Thank you. Sending hugs back. I hope today was a good day for you both.


  3. Thanks for sharing Jo. It is always a pleasure to check in. With poetry, there are many styles. I am not a master poet, but you have write from what’s in your soul. Some of my best poems come from their.

    1. Thank you. I love your poetry. I try to write from the heart and find that most times, the words I write are things I wish I could say out loud…if that makes any sense? I hope this weekend is treating you well.
