Cookie cutters in the shape of mustaches
are handy to adorn a Santa face cut-out cookie
with a handlebar ‘stache

cookie cutters are good for
interesting homemade biscuits too

After gobbling up
a few squirrel shaped baking powder biscuits
it looks like rain.
So, we don our jackets
and hop on the bicycles

Let’s take the backroads,
new roads,
gravel roads,
and notice the lawn ornaments.
Snow White and most of her dwarves,
ceramic deer, gnomes, donkeys
and on a lucky ride
a gazing ball.

We might find some pretty
road-side weeds next ride
to make a weed bouquet for the kitchen.

Don’t forget to curl dandelions
when they are in season
and of course always, always pick
pussy willows in their fuzzy stage.

You know, you’re never too old
to watch cartoons
to finger paint
or learn to knit badly.

Cheese sauce does make broccoli taste better.
I say we bring back the fondue pot fad
and macramé too while we’re at it.

Mom used to say
“never grow up.”
Play
and a cache of sillies
will ensure we don’t get too serious.
