When dreams come true
Country crossroads, icy backroads
There’s no trip to the farm.
In the air there’s an unwelcome mist.
I’m not driving,
there’s no shopping
Oh the deals I have missed.
I’ll just stay home, do the laundry
Hang the ornaments on the tree.
Put my feet up, tune to Hallmark
It’s a good day to stitch.
Oh the weather, now it’s foggy
When will the next round come in?
These days I dreamed of, when it was busy
It’s time to get some projects done!
Yay, the tree’s trimmed — ain’t it pretty?
I sure did miss this last year.
What to do next? This is boring!
I’ll just sit again to stitch.
Time to get up, time to take a break.
I can shovel the walk.
Hey it’s not bad, I can go out
To the Y and walk the track.
Then the ice came, it was not nice
Freezing rain is not my friend.
I must go though, buy a jug of milk
And some bags of salad.
Back at home again, on the phone with mom
The hunters, they haven’t had much luck.
A puzzle’s out and on the table,
She’s in need of some help.
Well I’m sorry Mom, I’m not driving out
Think I’ll just stay home … and stitch.
Finally, now it’s Sunday night,
and my eyes are so strained!
Too much stitching, too much TV,
Won’t this headache just leave?
Back at work again Monday morning
Are those coworkers I see?
How I’ve missed them, it was so quiet
In my house, just my stitching and me!
Dear readers, I love snow days when I can be home and surrounded by my stash of needlework supplies, but a three-day stitching binge can sure make a person stir-crazy!
The sun is out now and the streets are clear, shopping must commence, for Christmas is near.
My wish for you this season is to spend time with those you love, make time for what you love and don’t overdo it on the eggnog or the oyster stew.
