Blueberry Muffins

We thought that we’d give him

the gift of a huggin’

so we found us a puffin

all wheezin’ and snufflin’

who said she would help

without chargin’ us nothin’.

She wrapped her wings ’round

and with plenty of huffin’

inadvertently squeezed out

a part of his stuffin’.

It’s only because her nose

was a stuffed ‘un

that saved her from smellin’ those

“blueberry muffins”.

Ha! I bet you were expecting a recipe.

Boots

Mommy’s boots and puppies’ boots

After a day of play.

They go with us on our ADventures

and then by the door they stay.

Climbing hills, breaking trails,

They go wherever we go.

We take them off when we say goodnight

And dream of more days of snow.

Two puppies make snow angels in a snow bank.
Two puppies look at their snow angels. One is an angel, the other one a devil.

Ooh, tough break Toby.

Handknit man's cardigan.

Many fine cardigans and sweaters are still available at L Bowman Studios! These incredibly soft cardigans are hand knit of merino wool, superfine alpaca and Donnegal tweed. The buttons are made of eco-friendly natural coconut shell. Warm cozy sweaters allow us to keep the thermostat turned back to save both money and the environment.

Many gifts are available at my shop at L Bowman Studios.

Soaring High

Toby flies in the night sky.

Soaring high

among the stars

Look at the road.

There are no cars.

People locked

in prison homes,

turning soft while

nations grow.

What happens next?

I hate to see.

You’d better learn

to speak Chinese.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

Actually, I can’t wait to get sick and croak so I never have to hear the word “covid” again.  Aaaagh!!!  (Me?  Overloaded?  Nah…)

Toby’s Prize

Sweet potato that Toby dug up in the garden

Toby had a special something

TOday that he found.

It was an orange tuber that was

Hiding in the ground.

He dug it up with his own paws

From its dark hiding place.

He showed it off to me and Mom

A huge grin on his face!

******************************************************

I wish I had the camera ready when Toby found this giant sweet potato (It was 9″-10″ long.)  .  I don’t think I have ever seen such a big smile on his puppy face.  This just reinforced to him that digging in the garden is great fun.

I am tempted to hide a few potatoes in the dirt and set him loose to find them.  If all goes well, the tilling should get done with very little effort on my part.

Psychedelic Pup

Hippie Toby says:  I really dig gardening.

If you are wondering about Toby’s commentary on the Pollack picture, like most kids, he doesn’t appreciate abstract art.  He is saying, “Heck, I could do that!”

 

Loonies

 

Digital picture of Toby howling at the moon.

Awoo!

Loonies, they call us, who howl at the moon.

Our song starts at dusk, and we’ll howl until noon.

We like best to sing no particular tune.

You may as well join us; we’re starting up soon!
