Can’t Get Those Words Out of my Mind

I went out with my family tonight to supper. I had fish for my meat selection and big, breaded mushrooms. Talk about going off the diet wagon. They then stopped here at my house for a short visit and then headed to their own home. I love spending time with them.

I think about my other kids and grandchildren back home and my heart pings a little as I realize how much I miss them. I am hoping to hitch a ride with my son-in-law when he heads back up north; then I will get to see everyone.

Today the clouds were put away and the big, warm sunshine came out. It felt wonderful to me. It is not supposed to rain for a few days now, so hope to really enjoy it. I think the temperature rose to 78 today.

Have you ever been doing nothing and suddenly some words pop into your head and you just can’t seem to rid them? I started doing that about fifteen minutes ago and now I bet I have repeated the words ten times in  my head. Is there some reason for this, or am I just getting crazy in my older years.

What was it that came alive in my thoughts? It was this.

Why in the world would a gal my age be pumping out the words to an old nursery rhyme? I do know that I feel a few hunger pangs in my stomach; but then again, I have never had porridge, so I don’t even know if I would like it.

I actually am considering having a bowl of cereal here in a few minutes. I  purchased Peanut Butter Cheerios tonight and it sounds pretty good right now. Either that or I will have a cut-up apple with some peanut butter on it. Do you like that? Or tell me what you like to snack on before bedtime.


Pease Porridge Hot

Pease-porridge hot,
Pease-porridge cold,
Pease-porridge in the pot,
Nine days old;
Some like it hot,
Some like it cold,
Some like it in the pot,
Nine days old.

  1. Your brain is fine..Terry! Laughing with you on this. I being a writer like you are and I am sometimes, it just happens. Just another creative spurt. We, the mouse and I ( I mean my hubby) should be working on not eating before bed, but it happens to often. I like Kashi Cinnamon Harvest, but the peanut butter with apple sounds good.We lost weight at one time and that was our usual dessert. Have you tried Honey Crisp Apples. We ate some good ones recently, but the last bag of them were terrible. Anyway repeat, I have the mind of Christ…ox Good night!


    • Mother Hen, I love Honey Crisp Apples!!! In fact, that is what I had my peanut butter with. See? if we lived in the same area, we could share apples and peanut butter snack recipes!!!!! hugs


  2. LOL I have that all the time, Terry, and sometimes it can be sooooo frustrating, but we can still laugh about it, so don’t worry..although, sometimes it feels like there’s something going on in those brains and then I have to cry…stupid hormones LOL 😀
    Porrigde is good, Terry. Glad you like them, they’re good when you have Diabetes 🙂 No snacks for me before bedtime, water and herb-tea and when I really need something, I take some (wal)nuts or an apple without peanut butter…yikes… Have a wonderful weekend 🙂 ❤


    • my sugars can drop so low during the night, I find peanut butter helps my levels to stay normal. I started out working as a kid in restaurants and of course I always got off in the later part of the evening so I would have my supper then. A bad habit I didn’t mean to start, but now a days, I snack but am careful. Maybe an apple with peanut butter, or some nuts, or sometimes some toast with pumpkin butter. hugs my friend

  3. Granny Smith apples with peanut butter!

    Porridge? I looked it up once. Basically, it’s oatmeal. It can be any other cereal grain, cut and boiled. The practice of putting it on a low-heat back burner wood stove) and adding to it daily is behind the nine-days-old bit. “Pease” is thought to be “peas,” not our green peas but more along the lines of lentils. Interesting stuff. I love trivia 🙂
