There’s a Price to Pay for a Wish to Come True…

Wishing Well

Bob Mould, from Workbook

Wishing well runs wet and dry
I wish for things I never had
Surrounds and wells up in my eyes
The screaming voice, it lies
Wishing well gets someone’s attention
Every wish you ever had
In a day of nights, in the darkest of light
Sits and cries, watch the lies

Could you give me a wish if I tell you what I want?
Will the price be no object?
I wish for dreams of light
I live for wishing well surprise

Deepest light, the secret lies
Wishing well gives you all that you desire
Homes and trains, and the greenest of plains
That you ever happened upon
The silent wish, it calls you out
Calls you out by name
Lays upon the plain, on the mountain high
City lights, wish delights

What if the waters and wishes appear?
Will the price be no object?
I wish for dreams of light
I live for wishing well surprise

Twist and shape on the winding twine
Around the spindle winds
Wish again, four times again
Four wishes deep into the well

There’s a price to pay for a wish to come true
Trade a small piece of your life
Roots in the soil, uprooting the soil
Mountain high, the mountain high
The wish is only to speak a kind
Kind of word, so benign absurd
The well, three wishes run dry
Wishing well is dry
When no grass grows, the weeds run in line
Wish three wishes, three wishes run dry

Love this Life

Love this Life

Seal my fate
I get your tongue in the mail
No one is wise
Until they see how it lies
Love this life
Don’t wait till the next one comes
Pedal my faith
The wheels are still turning round, turn round

And maybe the day will come
When you’ll never have to feel no pain
After all my complaining
Gonna love this life
Gonna love this life

And so they threw you in jail
Whatever you’ve done
It was a million to tone
And don’t you just love this life
When it’s holding you down
Pedal my faith
The wheels are still turning round, turn round

So maybe the day will come
When you’ll never have to feel no pain
After all my complaining
Gonna love this life
Gonna love this life

There’s something that you can do
Even if you think that I hate you
Stop your complaining leave me defenseless
When you love this life
Gotta love this life
Love this life though you’ll never know why
Gonna love this life
Gonna love

Props to Janiece!

For going out to counter-protest the Westboro “Baptist Church” and braving the cold to do so.

Y’all are the best!

Hell, let’s just go ahead and wallow.

WWA: Spring Sprang Sprung

Temps in the 80s at the beginning of the month, temps in the low 30s recently.

And with that, today’s word is: inconsistent

Tasty Tuesday: Random Bits

1) I love spring when strawberries are in season. Yum, yum yum!

2) Janiece is made of six different kinds of awesome: Grandmom received two jars of apple butter today!

3) I’ve been reading through baking books, but haven’t yet gotten around to writing a single review. I’ll try to get to that in the near future.
For reference, the books are:
Bakewise, by Shirley O. Corriher
The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, by Peter Reinhart
Baking at Home with The Culinary Institute of America
and currently on my bed stand is Baking with Julia

Of the four, I think I found the CIA book most useful; Bakewise would have been rated higher, but it really needed a better editor–the tidbits often wandered afield and never quite made it home.

Actually, there may be more, but I can’t think of ’em right now.
