Hello Everyone!

Correction for Weekly Prompts Word White blog.

Chinese New Year is actually February 25, 2020.
Correction date should be “January 25, 2020”.

I read this part from “Chinese Fortune Calendar“:
The first day of the White Rat year is not the Chinese New Year Day in Chinese Astrology. The first day of the Tiger month is the first day of the Chinese Astrology year. This day is called the Start of Spring, which is the date when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. This day is around February 4, each year. 2020 Chinese White Rat starts on February 4, 2020, in China’s time zone. That means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of the White Rat Year. If a baby is born before February 4, 2020, then the baby’s zodiac sign is the Pig, not Rat.

I have learned my lesson to read information more carefully.

What is it? 3

Hello Everyone!

I’m poisonous when raw
Different shades from off white to deep purple,
Different shapes long and skinny or teardrop or bulbous or round or pear or a large grape.

I’m tiny,
I have arms, legs, eyes,
I have a tiny voice,
I’m green,
My name is Pickett and my friend is Newt Scamander.

I’m small,
Kind of like a mole,
Kind of like a platypus,
I have an odd snout,
I have a pocket to carry my stuff.

I think you might recognize me right away due to the beautiful color of my leaves, plus they are also double leaves.
My branches are unique because they are almost kissing the ground,


I love hot and arid regions of Americas,
My rosettes are of strong, fleshy leaves,
I’m a perennial,
I take years to mature and flower,
I’m considered a very popular ornamental plant used especially hot and dry climates,
This hint might give me away – people love my flavor in unique drinks they make.

Have a great day! Hope

Stymie

Hi Everyone!

Do you get the feeling you are being stymied no matter which way you turn?
The CV-19 information stymies me everyday!

Stymied by 6 feet apart? Here I go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and finally 6.
Stymied by no eating in restaurants?

Stymied by having to wear a mask no matter where you are?
Stymied by stores letting people in without a mask?

Stymied by people that ignore the direction of the aisle arrows.
Can you imagine if a store still used mirrors and over the loud spreaker :
Attention person turning down aisle 5 you’re going down in the wrong direction.

Stymied by all the red tape to get a clear answer?

Monday have to wear mask no matter what,

Tuesday if you don’t have a mask wear a scarf, bandana, some type of covering,

Wednesday masks are now available,

Thursday masks are gone again,

Friday search websites for masks, make your own masks, etc,

Saturday locking myself in the house, in a closet so no one not even my cat can breath on me.

Sunday got out of the closet. Told myself are you that bonkers, just wear the mask, scarf, bandana, anything that will fit around my head.

I have learned to go along with the flow with what is happening.
I don’t listen to all the stations to find out if there is something different about what is going on. I do listen for updates and then sign off.
I keep myself posted, check with friends and relatives on how they are doing.
Thinking positive I will be able to go into my favorite restaurant soon!

Have a great day! Hope

Hello Everyone!

The old saying “only a mother could love this face”.
This bird grows to four (4) feet or taller.
Unlike many others birds who inhabit similar marsh environments, they are highly effective predators.

WOW! This little creature is so colorful.
This little creature is ancient and fierce. They can reach up to 18 cm (7 in). They live in holes sand/gravel close to coral reefs. Their freakishly strong appendages are called “clubs”.

I think you might be able to guess the name of this flower.The bright red bits are bracts, not petals. The leaf-like bracts are only in their kissable state for a few days before opening to reveal the little yellow and white flowers within. Plant is native to the tropical regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama, but due to its popularity with collectors and the deforestation of its natural habitat it’s landed on the endangered list. Hope we don’t have to kiss this little beauty goodbye anytime soon!

This item is also known as morel, despite its unappealing appearance. Morels are characterized by a fruit body that expands into a large, yellowish sponge that contains deep pits. Item is hard to grow which contributes to their high demand (and price) in many parts of the world.

Taradiddle

Hello Everyone!

Hope: Wow! Christmas sure came fast this year.
Penelope: What?
Hope: Christmas is just a couple of weeks away.
Penelope:
Don’t you mean 8 months away?
Hope: No, no. It will be here before you know. I got all my shopping done, have made cookie dough and put it in the freezer, then in a couple of weeks I can take it out and bake them. Can’t
wait until the kitchen has that fabulous scent of oatmeal & apple cookies.
Penelope: I going to call Abby to come on over and have some tea with us.
Hope: Okay I’ll put the teapot on the stove.
Abby:
Hello girls how’s everything going?
Penelope: Hope keeps on saying Christmas is coming soon, made her cookies, then froze them, and will pull them out to bake them in a couple of weeks.
Abby: Penelope, just to let you know Hope is one of the greatest “taradiddle”
in the world.
One day when you are older you will realize how she can tell a “taradiddle” about anything.
Penelope: Oh!

Have a great taradiddle day! Hope
