Wordless Wednesday

A plum for you, or maybe two

Innocence pure and sweet

Kissed by the sun, our little ones

You brighten each day with your funny ways

So loved by all are you

Your sweet smiles go on for miles

So endless is your laughter

A plum for you, or maybe two

In a world lived happily after

Our Lollipop and Cowboy

Giggles and kisses galore

A plum for you, or maybe two

Who could ask for more!

A plum day for 2 of my grandchildren.

AmiLynn took these beautiful photos of Lauren and Owen, who are 11 months apart in age, picking plums in her backyard. Ami is on the verge of being a great photographer, she has an eye for it and seems to capture “sweet” moments as they appear. Thank you Ami!

Hi Linda
I think today was a plum day for grandma...getting to show these beautiful grandchildren and create a plum cute poem too. I had a peach of a day myself...peeling a few for grandson Dylan to eat.

Smiles,
Wanda

I adore plums! And those little faces are just plum cute! Ami seems to be very talented with the camera Linda. I really admire her eye. I get lucky every now and then but some people just have a knack. And you do great with the poetry. I find it very difficult! I am going to go back now and look at the rest of the photos!

Hi Linda

I think everyone has different things they need to 'change' with this 30 day Throw Down. I am fast realising how much 'healthy' processed food we eat each day - but there are un-processed foods out there too. Just cutting down on sugar will be a big help. If you eat 2 teaspoons/day less sugar - times it by 365 - do the math and be amazed - you would be cutting out about 8 lbs of sugar from your yearly intake! Likewise with butter or margarine.

I'm not saying I will be a saint the whole time I'm trying this but I am gonna give it a red hot go!

I look forward to seeing your progress.

Cheers for now, Joolz
