It's that time of the year....

Thursday, April 19, 2012


but bringing back memories.  I was born on a Wednesday.  For a second or two I couldn’t remember what day of the week I was born on.  A Google search revealed that I was born on a Wednesday.  And now I know what is wrong with me.  I am filled with ‘woe.’
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for its living,
But a child that's born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blythe, and good and(happy).

Wednesday - the fourth day of the week, Woden (Odin), 
chief god of
Norse mythology, who was often called the All Father. 
child is full of woe." Odin's responsibilities were such 
that he was
never attributed with any cheerful disposition.
Since I was child # 6 in what turned out to be 8 children, 
I am thinking it was probably my mom that was full of woe.   
Oh, the things we think of when we don’t want to do any 
I have been to Kroger to stock up on veggies and TV dinners 
and now I really do need to cut this short.
Have a peaceful day.  Stay safe and be happy!!


  1. I just looked it up and I was born on a Wednesday too.
    I am an only child.

  2. Me, too! I was a Wednesday's child. May have had woe, but a lot of joy, too. And I don't think anybody gets by without woe in this life. ;)

  3. I was born on a Sunday, but I think they left out that Sunday's child is also klutzy and the lover of huge anounts of chocolate! Have a great day Beth!
    Blessings, Joanne

  4. I used to know but now I forgot. I think it was Wednesday as well. I'll go see.


  5. Nope. I was born on a Thursday..I have far to go. (ain't THAT the truth!)

  6. I am a Wednesday's child. I always hated that poem when I was a child. Now, I don't put much stock in such things. Each life has its measure of loss and sadness.

  7. You found out what day you were born on by Googling yourself? I have no idea what day I was born on but I have it on good authority that I was in fact born.

  8. I googled my birthdate and you knew that. LOL

  9. Guess I'd better get busy and check it out,

  10. Must be something to that because I just googled to see what day of week my brother and I were born on....I was born on Thursday, and yes, I have far to go....and my brother was born on Sunday....wouldn't you know it fits him exactly?He definitely is "bonny and blythe and good and happy!!!"

  11. Monday evening, I don't know about "fair of face" but I think the time of day determines whether you are a night person or a morning person. I am definately a night person.

    Interesting read. But you can overcome the woe and probably have. :o) Beach Gal Bertie

  12. That's interesting Beth I was born on a Saturday, yes that sounds about right then for me. Thanks for sharing
    Have a good day
    Sheila and Wile-e xx

  13. Now you have me wondering. Guess I'll have to go find out. What I remembe is my mother telling me I took my own sweet time getting here. 4 days. Sorry mom.

  14. Oh fiddle-sticks on that old Oden/Woden, the Chief God of Norse mythology. -grin-

  15. I'm a Wednesday's child too, but full of whoa - AKA slow down, you're goin' too fast!

  16. I'm a Friday child. I am called Kofi in Ghana where they pay close attention to the day of the week in which you are born. I've never heard this before, live 'n learn!

  17. I'm a Friday child, dunno about the loving and giving part though.;-)

  18. WELL crud I had to go look up my day and I'm a Wednesday too. Well crap ... lol
