Poem TodayNo title to the poem. I wrote it after seeing the empty wingback chair in my sons room facing out toward the dark of nite. It was a little ominous to me but somehow comforting also (to know our home is our refuge). Anyway:
An empty chair sits in the dark looking out on a winters nite, the naked window exposing a black portal and the empty chair offering a repite for scrying, sit and gaze or quietly walk past- the future unfolds regardless if it is asked.
Okay, poetry break over (I just felt like sharing).. My shawl is coming along beautifully. I just keep holding it out and admiring the yarn and the stitch. A little crazy, I know, but it is just gonna feel so warm and cozy wrapped around me when it is done.
I finally made the Tenn. Whiskey (crumble) Cake. I added the crumble because part of it stuck in the pan and what was left of it shifted as I transfered it from the cooling rack to the plate. It is one f***ed up looking cake, but I sampled the bits that remained in the pan and ------ YUM! It may look like one of my boys made it (Ha!) but it sure is delicious. I just need to make the whiskey sauce to cover it and if I put enough Jack in it no one will care what the hell it looks like. Next time I make it I'm gonna soak all the fruit (dates, cherries, and apricots) in the Jack first and then mix it in the batter. It will be heavenly then.
Okay, I have last minute shopping to do today. If you don't have any last minute running around to do, don't brag. I thought I was done too but there is always something else to get at the grocery store or a last minute do dad to add. I want to get it done today because tomorrow our weather here in Tennessee is suppose to turn crappy. I hate going out in the rain and wind and add cold to it and forget it.
Have a good day, all! Peace be with you and all of your loved ones. ~DAWN
