Flower of the Day – Magic Mushrooms

These are some photos my daughter sent me yesterday of a little pot of lavender flowers she grew.

Then she said that overnight, like magic, these mushrooms sprouted all around in the flower pot.

The Cobbler

He cobbled me a conversation

Made of words and phrases

He took me on a wondertrip

To all the magic places

He cobbled me back together

As only he could do

I fell into his conjuring tale,

And away we both flew…

Cobbling juju?

I heat up, I can’t cool down
You got me spinning
‘Round and ’round
‘Round and ’round and ’round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burning for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel’s face

I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I’m gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say

Abra abracadabra
I wanna reach out and grab ya
Abracadabra
Abracadabra

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burning flame
Burning flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher

I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round
I heat up, I can’t cool down
My situation goes ’round and ’round

This song is a favorite of mine, too. It was also one of the featured songs in the movie soundtrack of “Tokyo Pop”. That movie is definitely one of my favorites. In the movie the song was sung by Carrie Hamilton, daughter of Carol Burnett. Carrie has sadly passed away now, but she was a wonderful actress.

“Do You Believe in Magic”, by the Lovin’ Spoonful, was written by John Sebastian, and released in 1965. It is on the Kama Sutra label, and was a single from the album, “Do You Believe in Magic”.

Do you believe in magic in a young girl’s heart
How the music can free her, whenever it starts
And it’s magic, if the music is groovy
It makes you feel happy like an old-time movie
I’ll tell you about the magic, and it’ll free your soul
But it’s like trying to tell a stranger ’bout rock and roll

If you believe in magic don’t bother to choose
If it’s jug band music or rhythm and blues
Just go and listen it’ll start with a smile
It won’t wipe off your face no matter how hard you try
Your feet start tapping and you can’t seem to find
How you got there, so just blow your mind

If you believe in magic, come along with me
We’ll dance until morning ’til there’s just you and me
And maybe, if the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow, sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing, baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music and the music’s in me

Yeah, do you believe in magic
Yeah, believe in the magic of a young girl’s soul
Believe in the magic of rock and roll
Believe in the magic that can set you free
Ohh, talking ’bout magic

Songwriters
JOHN SEBASTIAN

MAGIC CRUNCHIES

Standard

Do you remember the story of “Jack and the Beanstalk”? He was the boy who traded his family’s cow for some magic beans. His mother threw them out the window, she was so upset. However, overnight one of the beans, being magic, grew into a really tall beanstalk. He climbed it way up into the sky, and found the giant’s house. After tricking the giant, Jack was able to escape with the goose that laid the golden egg. He and his mother lived happily ever after, on the riches the golden eggs provided.

I think my cats hope something like that happens when I give them their crunchy cat food. They eat it all, except one. All four cats have a habit of doing this. I don’t knw why, but could be they think if they leave one, it will be magic and make more crunchy food appear. Most of the time it works.

Eventually, I’ll add more crunchies to the one left behind…and, just like the cats planned, the magic crunchy made more for them. Now, if only it would grow a big, tall, crunchy tree for them to climb, they would be even more amazed. 🙂   This is Cricket!Image
