Good morning everyone,
As I look out our window this morning I’m reminded of the line of an old song: “When I needed sunshine I got rain.” (Prize points to you if you can name it!) We are longing for sunshine and spring, but we’re getting snow and more snow. The air’s full of lovely, fluffy white flakes now, but this is supposed to change to freezing drizzle later.
“It’s an ill wind that blows no good.” And “Every cloud has a silver lining.” I took advantage of the below-freezing temps overnight to defrost my upright freezer. It’s handy when you can set things outside in a tub and know they’ll stay frozen.
We have a lovely list of prompts this morning. Even if the weekend’s past, I’m going to dedicate this post to Sammi’s weekend writing prompt:
It’s a real challenge to write an actual story in 49 words; you don’t have enough words for more than the opening lines to a proper story. But here’s my response:
“It’s a keepsake from Grandma, I guess.” Anita displayed the faded apron her mom sent.
“Does she think you’re going to become domestic…baking cookies and all.”
“I remember Grandma gathering eggs, making a basket of this apron.”
“Fabulous! I’ll call the hatchery. Since we’re staying home these days…”
