IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: ANZAC DAY, DAFFODILS, TOMATOES AND CHAT

If  we  were having  Coffee  :  time  again to ask how  are  you all are   and  what  have  you been up  to this  week!  Come in it is lovely  to see you all here again. The fires are lit and  the cushions are plumped up and  we have  the coffee and tea on  the go  and the cakes and sweets are all set out.  We  have  tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we were having  Coffee: I would ask  you what  has been going on in your world this week, has  anything  deeply affected  you, have  you need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry  on or  just  needed someone  to make  you laugh! If  yes  feel free to talk it out  here  with us. We will all help if  we can.

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster  

Right  now I am exhausted  it has  been a  busy  day  set  at  the end of  a very  busy  week! I am not  really  sure  where  to start!

Yesterday  was Anzac Day, and  there  was  a  full day’s  worth  of  Remembrance for  those who  fell .  Read  here.  Princess Anne  her  husband  , the  Queen  and Prince  Philip  all took part  in  the services  today,  read  here . Prince  Charles  and Camilla  traveled  to Anzac  Cove  to  lay a wreath read  more  here .

THANK  YOU  TO ALL ANZACS

Sunny Daffs

If  we  were  having  Coffee  : I would  tell  you  that  our  tomatoes are  growing  well  and  soon  they  will be  ready   to  put out  into  grow bags! I have  also  put up  a photo  of  my  beloved  Daffodils. I  do  love  them  so for  their  colour  the  freshness  and  their  hopefulness!  There is  not  enough  hope  in this  world  that  we cannot  enjoy  the  sunny  Daffodils.

The Rockery

If  we  were having  Coffee:  I wold  share  with  you some  photos  of  my  week of  the unseasonable  sunshine  and  the  joys  of  nature! All  this  month  I  have  been  very  busy  keeping up  with  April A  to Z  Challenge   which I  had  decided  not  to  do  but  when it  came  to the  crunch I  could  not , not  pick  up  the baton  and  run  so  all  this  months  I have been  writing  a  Nonet  to  correspond  to  the  letters  of  the alphabet yesterdays  was V  and  with it  being  Saturday it  was  conjoined  with LindaGHill‘s  SoCs  with  the prompts  being  Very or  Vary  or  derivatives there of!

It  has  been  fun  but very  hard , finding  a  subject  each  day  beginning  with  the letter  of  the day  has  been hard  but I have  done  my  very  best!

If  we  were having coffee : I  would  replenish  your  cup  and off you  a cake…

Coffee and cake

I  do like  the  though  of  chocolate  and strawberry  cake! What  type  of cake  do  like  best ? Do  let  me  know  even  send  a photo  or  recipe  or  even  both ! I  could  display  them  next  week.

Now it is  getting  very  late   and I  need  to get  to bed  so I  am setting  this  up  now  to  go out  tomorrow  which is in  a few  minutes  time !I  need  my  sleep  and I have  to admit  that  I am very  tired  so I shall have  to  bid  you all farewell  for  now  and look forward  to seeing  you all again  next  week!

Okay  lets  all go  and join  Paul  and his  guests  now  for  a  chat  and  more  coffee!

And of course  the

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  WEEKEND COFFEE SHARE

over at Part Time  Monster  and Gene’O’s

Not the A to Z April Challenge : Erotica

Entwined bodies writhe, excitement mounts

Hands  and wet tongues touch where it  counts

Temperatures are rising fast

OH! how long can this last

Body Entanglement

Lust not yet spent

Glorious

Raw Sex

Us

 

NOT THE APRIL A TO Z CHALLENGE : Discombobulated.

Discomboulated

Totally  Discombobulated

Against me  the stars were fated

Silently I stood, waited

Everything I hated

Was  happening  now

I made  a vow

I won’t row

no not

now.

 

Being a wooze!

It  is  my  own fault  I did not  have  the  nerve  to  sign up  for  the  April A to Z Challenge ! But  I  could  not let  it  go,  one  part  of  me   said (  quite rationally )  you have  enough  to be coping  with , don’t  put  yourself under pressure while  the  other  part of  me  was screaming  you  wooze  you  lazybones   you have  to do it ! The  latter  part of  me  shouts louder and much  more  harshly  than the  sensible  side!

So  here I am Not  doing  the  A to Z  April  Challenge! Everyday   except Sunday I  shall post  a Nonet, yes I  have decided  to  use  the Nonet for  my  non  entry’s!  A Nonet is a nine line poem. The first line containing nine syllables, the next line has eight syllables, the next line has seven syllables. That continues until the last line (the ninth line) which has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject. Rhyming is optional.

I  do apologize  to  those  who  have  organized  this  event  and  those participating  …. I  reading  those  that I  know of …. But I an  a wooze. The  louder  braver  part of  me is urging me on  and  telling  me  that  next  year I  must  join up  and  brave up!!

So good  luck  to everyone involved and I hope  you don’t  mind  we tagging  along unofficially!

NOT THE APRIL A TO Z CHALLENGE : Catastrophe

Catastrophe

Catastrophe  that is  you and me

Devastation is  what we be

Tis’ what  we  are  you and  me

We should talk, we  should hear

Not give in to fear

Catastrophic

That is us

No hope

Left

NOT THE APRIL A TO Z CHALLENGE : BROCADE, NONET

Brocade  red  and  gold  swish  and  a swirl

Fitting  adornment for the girl

Golden hair  and  brown  of eye

OH! she  sets hearts to  fly

Dancing  gaily she

She  reminds me

Of how I

Used to

Be

 

Not the April A to Z Challenge : Abyss

I stand  on the  brink of  the Abyss

Afraid unless I  slip  and miss

Darkness falls away  below

Deeper  than I can know

Slowly reaching  out

The Abyss  shouts

Out to me

Set me

Free.
