The Happy Homemaker

Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt is TOOL.  It used to be thought that tools were the province only of humans, but we now know that many animals, particularly birds and mammals use tools.  Do you have a favorite? Share your tool inspired creation with us, and thanks


When I set up my first home

Everyone asked if I wanted stuff for my new place and I said of course!

I was very excited you see, to be setting up my own little place.


I asked for knives.

Lots and lots of knives.

I figure every well ordered home had knives, don’t they?

So I asked for knives

and a knife sharpener

and a first aid kit.

And Band-Aids.

What do you need with so many knives?  Everyone who asked somewhat were puzzled and for some reason they were a little apprehensive too.

” And band-aids, don’t forget the band-aids. I like the ones that look like bacon strips.”

That year I got lots of cool things, I mean my family and friends were super generous.

I Didn’t get any knives though.

Among the fondue pots ( got two of those ) and the Wok and the hot air popcorn popper I did get book about the benefits of meditation and  about a dozen of those cds  that play relaxing music and sounds from nature and I got a dvd of a coral reef and fish- it’s supposed to be soothing the cover says.

But like I said.

Not a single knife.

Thinking back on it, maybe I asked for too much. Maybe this time I’ll just ask for one thing.

Like an axe.
