Love Bird Nest

by Sharon Byrn 

Welcome to the wild west
Known for its zest.
Here you find only the best
builders for your treasury chest;
or maybe your builders request
is for a simple "love bird nest."
Competition would suggest
that our manifest
won the best hope chest.
After a day of beauty rest
and some time to invest;
you see our heart shaped request
took winners screen test;
here at the builders fun fest!

Love Bird Nest

toad story

Toad's Toadstool Tuesday


Toad was a simple frog and enjoyed the simple things in life. One of those being Tuesday. Tuesday was Toad's favorite day, the day he got to sit on his favorite toadstool and read his favorite book. 

What was his favorite book you might ask? Toad wasn't sure, to be honest. Maybe the one he read about dragons. No, no, he thought to himself. It was the one he read with you. For Toad was simple and liked simple things, and spending time with you was simple and easy to do... because you're you.

Just Another Toadstool Tuesday
