Road Trip on Fri-Yay Funday

Jump up with anticipation, ready to hit the road
packing up the car, loaded to the brim
suit cases, sleeping bags, fishing rods, games and don’t forget the snacks.
run back in for Mr. blankie and baby Ellie. God forbid we forget them.  

Counting license pates, telling stories catching up on life’s events, playing my little eyes see something that is blue, singing 100 bottles of coke on the wall, everyone talking and nobody listening. Laughing and giggling stopping for a pit stop, filling up with gas and a treat.

Those days are imbedded in my mind, so chaotic and so much fun, up at the crack of dawn but time goes by, kids grow up, move out and make their way.  We’re left with memories that enrich our lives with stories to be told.

Jump up with anticipation ready to hit to road, 
packing up the car, loaded to the brim
computors, golf clubs a stroller, food, snacks for all. This time no kids but 2 Dogs, 2 cats, 3 Adults time to hit the road trip.  Run back in for the CBD in case the cat howl’s and dog’s growls get too much, God forbid we forget them.

Some things have changed but not that much we just replaced our kids for 4 furry legged ones.

Today at d’Verse Peter, asked us to write a circle poem that begins where it ends and ends where it begins.

I’ve never done this before but when I read Dwight’s poem at Roth’s poetry it was so much fun, I thought I might as well try it since I woke up with nada. I remembered David’s words after reading his awesome circle poem today saying “Cindy, of course you can write in these groups if you try” after telling him that I wasn’t equipped to learn all of these rules etc”. Well, one thing is sure and that’s that I’m not sure I followed it right but at all but at least I gave it a try and it was fun and hey, it’s Fri-Yay Funday!

My husband is hoping I’ll join he and my son for some lake fun so they can golf and I can watch the animals. Hahahahaha… I haven’t decided if this is fun for me or them so the jury’s out whether I go or not but it would be a good break from coyote guarding.

Have a great weekend and have some fun, no matter what you do.

  1. Wow, the circle poem is awesome Cindy. You did it well ❤️❤️❤️ And have fun on your roadtrip…. with the furry legged kids. 🤣🤣🤣 Stay safe Cindy 🥰🥰🥰

    1. Oh you’re so sweet Preeths!!! I felt so inadequate with such poets but that’s nice to hear…. soooo thanks! I will dear and you have a good weekned as well!! 💖💖💖

  2. Wohoooo, time passes and memories left in our minds for forever.
    I hope you will join your family company too dear Cindy. I can imagine how blessed your Friday is. Niceeeee post and poetry as always.

      1. I just don’t tend to like animals. But I have made friends with a stray kitten recently….she comes to me in search of food these days😅

  3. Another Fun Friday, Cindy. I like it that you are always giving yourself new challenges. This time doing a round on camping. How are the cats at the license plate game? Maybe you could play, Birdie, birdie, who sees the birdie? 🙂 By the time I married Peggy and inherited two teenagers, they were more into teenage things. We did go camping in Death Valley, at Pt. Reyes and the Grand Canyon, however. The latter ended up in a snow storm. Later, I would take the kids on backpacking trips, which was my favored form of camping. They were great.
    Peggy still likes the license plate game. Kids or no kids. –Curt

    1. Thanks so much Curt for the kindness as I felt a little like a fish out of water doing it which the cats would have liked 🤣🤣. Damn I should have consulted you on that car license plate game.. taht would have been a fun add on.. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
      What special memories it sounds like you had. I wish I’d done Grand Canyon with the kids and more of that but it would have done me in with the drop offs and counting 1 2 3 4 for a head count all day!!! Peggy is a good egg. I’m always on my computer.. that’s why I like to read your stories since i drive by and miss some of the scenery,, lol
      Thanks for visinting and have a great weekend!! 💖💖💖

      1. Cats would have glommed on to that fish out of water. Especially if it was still wiggling. 🙂 Peggy sucks me into her license plate game. And working our way through the alphabet via roadsigns. I’ve avoided I Spy for the most part.
        Four would have kept you busy, especially when they were little tykes.:)
        Glad you enjoy the stories! –Curt

  4. A great poem celebrating those golden memories of life on the toad Cindy, I think you should head out and join the boys 😊🤩🤩

    1. You’re soooo kind… I’m sitting in the sun as I type watching the fisherman drift by and the birds sing. 💖 Thank you and happy Saturday to you! ❤️

    1. LOL!!!🤣. always a mixed blessing Cheryl. The cat choir setled and Star didn’t get sick for the first time which is awesome and she’s not being the bush dweller that she usually is here (hiding under the bed and tables etc. Thanks!! ❤️

    1. The cat choir was underway but Star did the best she’s ever done this time and is no worse for wear for which is awesome!!! So far so good, thanks and you have a good one as well!!! Thanks and back at cha! 💖💖💖❤️❤️🙏🌷

  5. Funny ! At first I thought you were doing too many things at once and were repeating what you had just written.
    Finally got it. Well done . Have a great and fun weekend.😂

  6. You make me laugh, girlie! I hope you have a lovely break, and hopefully it won’t be all about the boys! Oh, and I appreciate the way you kind of follow the rules, adding your own special provisions! (And, look at that follower total now: almost 1500, holy cow! You’re amazing!) 🌞

    1. Oh awesome.. laughing is good. I’ve gotta hurry and lock them out….lol .. i have more to do alone.. lol. birds of a feather?!?! Thanks.. awwww you’re too kind! 💖💖💖🌷🌷🌷

  7. I love road trips. They have so many stories, so much fun. Your cat looks to be having fun. 😀
    I am hoping you enjoyed a lot. Take Care. Stay Safe.

    1. They are fun and were doing awesome. Ollie is like a dog so has fun whereever we go.. Star on the other hand is under the dresser. I’m having moments of joy Kritika. Thanks for your kind wishes! 💖💖💖

  8. Cindy, I hope you are having a grand trip. I guess a round trip is as good a metaphor for a circular poem as you can get. “We pulled out of the garage, excited for our sojourn…We pulled back into the garage, weary but not forlorned.”


    1. oh I like that Keith… round trip! It’s gorgeous here but the turn around is quick and I yearn for days not hours to unwind and chillax. Ooooh I like that.. that about sums up my trip. 🤣🤣🤣💖💖💖💖

  9. Woah! Hope you had fun at the trip Cindy! Lovely minutes of reading and reliving few stories in this post! Have a great week ahead!! 🌸

    1. Thanks Dishita!
      It’s always a good practice with short trips to enjoy the journey and not project the quick ending but threading them together somehow, awwww thanks so much for visiting and your kind hearted comment!!! You have a great week ahead too!💖💖💖

    1. Yes, it’s soooo true Paul….
      The difference… I know too much about fast turn arounds these days and the cat choir that comes with the territory.. lol.🤣
      Thanks for the visit…. It’s always appreciated! 💖
