Things I'll Never Outgrow and Reading The Past

For Fireblossom Friday Lists

Things I'll Never Outgrow

dying Easter eggs
blowing bubbles
playing in mud puddles
coloring books
puppies
and toads

Reading The Past


hundreds of years
or maybe centuries
passed
before the ground
gave up its secrets
we read their history
in stone
and bones
they left behind
Both for the prompt today at

Great thoughts indeed, greetings friend!

Cute, I could never outgrow puppies and toads! Have a happy weekend!

angieinspired said...

I love coloring books too. And am getting a puppy in 2 weeks. We'll see if I've outgrown this, or if she'll grow on me.

jewel grey said...

Aww, these are awesome! And I love the way you snuck in (Real) Toads at the end of the first one. So perfect! :)

The bubble-blowing was my favorite part.

Gillena Cox said...

The story of the past will be those bones.. Just like us.

Susie Clevenger said...

Fun piece...I wonder what my bones will say...

Sandra said...

remove the egg dyeing and I am with you on your list. i don't even boil eggs but about twice a year. my bones are fast becoming stone and close to being left behind

Like Jewel "And I love the way you snuck in (Real) Toads" and I also love coloring books.

Grace said...

I like the list Gail ~

LindaG said...

Finally the stones. I thought they would be something you would never outgrow. :-)
Have a blessed day!

Well done Gail ... and I still love blowing bubbles, so do my grandchildren, they look very colourful when we are out in the garden blowing bubbles everywhere !

All the best Jan

Magaly Guerrero said...

No one should ever outgrow toads... or forget the history written on the bones.

Love this pair!

Rommy said...

Both pieces are very fun! The first definitely makes me want to dig out a coloring book :)

Debbie said...

That's a wonderful list, keeping one youthful!!!!

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

That is a great list. I especially love that you added toads. I like them, too!

Karen S. said...

I'm on this same kine of magical carpet ride with you! A most perfect list!

Other Mary said...

Both are nicely done. I'm so glad you won't ever outgrow Toads! I don't think I will either. :o)
