Changing Hues

Butterfly Sand

The colour of my words

Is an ever-changing hue.

It shows what I am thinking

In the things I say and do.

Bright and cheery colours

Of Yellow and of Gold,

Mean my spirit’s lifting

My stories will be bold.

But when the colours deepen

To Purple and to Red,

Then my story changes

The tales may conjure dread.

Blues and greens are colours

That suggest a kinder tale.

I pray I’ll do an awesome job

Of which you could avail!

Black’s a colour on it’s own

A Darkness it implies.

Should I write a missive

When on evil it relies?

Join with me I pray thee,

And wander through my words.

Enjoy the rainbow I employ

With all those nouns and verbs.

Banana Cream Pie

Bernadine’s Bakery

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. Today I wanted to share one of the recipes I made for Thanksgiving, a banana cream pie! It’s a bit untraditional, but I had made apple, pecan, blueberry, and coconut in the past. Banana seemed like a delicious option, and it was! Here’s how to make banana cream pie:

My Week 215: Delusions Under Which I Suffer

mydangblog

When I was very little, I had a painful type of eczema on my hands called dyshidrosis. For some reason, the doctor became convinced that I was allergic to chocolate and oranges. This, of course, was patently untrue, as it turns out the causes of dyshidrosis are linked to seasonal allergies and stress. Go figure. But nobody knew that 50 years ago and as a result, I wasn’t allowed to eat chocolate or oranges for years in the hope that my hands would stop looking and feeling like they’d been stung by a thousand angry bees. I was OK with the chocolate, never really having had a sweet tooth. Oranges were a different matter though—I loved the tangy sweet taste of oranges, tangerines, and clementines, and I longed to be able to eat them. In my child’s mind, I coped with the deprivation by convincing myself that things that LOOKED…
