1,000 Words worth 2017-4

“Eugenia, you’re must get the kids on board,” Simon said, scurrying along the baseboard and squeezed under the sink. “I’m trying, but they’re hungry,” said Eugenia.  She rolled her eyes, but Simon missed it. She’d already turned her head toward her nursing litter and nuzzled her runt toward an empty teat. “We’re never getting out of here, if we don’t take a more systematic approach.” Simon stood on his hind legs and pulled a loose piece of veneer from the corner.  Simone, his first borne, his namesake, clambered onto his back and sank her teeth into a hirer piece of…

Snapped awake, Jennifer lay in her king-sized bed listening. She felt cold, absent the warm back that had exited a week ago.  She missed pressing up against his warmth enough to be willing to forgive the other kind of heat he emanated. The kind that stung and left scars. Was that a dream, or did something wake me? Did I hear something? Jennifer tried to calm her heartbeat with the self-talk her counselor taught her.  “Fear is just a feeling,” she whispered. The alarm clock red, blinked 1:00 A.M. The electricity must have gone off and back on again. Now…

A photo of an ordinary situation, and a little story to go with it. The photo is from a desk in my church’s office. Doris reminded herself that she needed this job. Even if she hated it.  Why did she say she knew how to do CAD?  I should have said, “I know cads, and I’ve done some, too.” at least that’d be the truth.  “What’s so funny,” said Alan,  prairie-dogging from his side of the cubicle. “What?” “You’re smiling at nothing.” Doris took a swig from her bottle of Dasani. “Oh, you know,” she said, twirling a piece of…

1,000 Words worth: 2017-1

I decided to shift gears a little this year.  Each Friday, I’ll take a photo of a very ordinary thing from, what I think is, an unusual angle.  Perhaps a close up, perhaps from underneath.   Here’s my first: “Weighed down by 75 years of M&Ms and other chocolatey goodies, the Gingerbread man could shared distant memories of “Run, run, as fast as you can.  You can’t catch me.  I’m the gingerbread man.”  The little gingerbread boys and girls rolled their eyes in disbelief.  Who would run away from a kind old woman in a warm, cozy home, anyways?  It…

My It’s almost here.  Christmas. Well, for me, it’s been here.  A IWOC party, an ASQ party, a Crandell party (via FaceTime for me, because of the weather,) a Rez Book Club party.  Next is Christmas Eve at CeCi’s, Christmas morning at Wrestler #2’s, and Christmas evening at the Durkees’. Wait, wait.  We’ve got more.  a New Year’s sleepover with the sweetheart dozen (grandkids, that is) and a relaxing almost all day celebration with the whole gang of direct descendants.         What’s in your lens this week.  Please leave a link below and let me take a…

1,000 Words worth: Spread a little Christmas Cheer

The day after shoveling out, I had this cheery greeting: I thought perhaps Miss E made it when she visited. As I drove through the neighborhood, I saw other mailboxes adorned with snow surprises. I ordered a laser projector to light up the outside of the house. In the morning, As Love-One and I hang the last of our Christmas decorations, Sasha steps up to lend a helping hand paw. What’s in your lens this week?  I’d love to take a peek.  Just leave a comment below, and I’ll hope over to your site for a visit.  If you want…

1,000 Words Worth,  “A Christmas Carol”

Saturday Loved-One and I took the grandkids for our 16th annual Christmas outing.  A lot has changed during that time.  We went from one to 12 grandkids.  We added daughters and sons, and lost a few through divorce.  I know there will be changes in the future.  For today, I’ll celebrate our abundance.     Edit   The Merry Christas season is now officially underway.
