Food For Thought

Last evening was another glimpse of sunlight after 4:00 pm. Again, my eyes drifted up to the orange colored sky in the east and I started to think of ice cream. An orange dreamsicle sat on the tip of my tongue and my mouth watered a little bit in the middle of traffic. Yes, somethingContinue reading “Food For Thought”

Last Sliver of Daylight

I turned the corner out of downtown and made my way onto the exit to head back home in the procession of cars. As usual, the overhead signs flashed with an accident near an exit ramp and I let out one of those tire sighs. The way home is always the same when you’re inContinue reading “Last Sliver of Daylight”

Girl’s Roadtrip!

My weekend started with an rise to frosted windshields and white tipped lawns as I hugged my husband and climbed into my Uber. My eyes were half open but I let out a relaxing sigh because a weekend out of town finally arrived! It’s time for a Girl’s Weekend and Roadtrip to Chicago, Illinois! That’sContinue reading “Girl’s Roadtrip!”

The Weekend

Today’s word goes along with the beginning if the weekend. In my mind, I picture everyone rushing to and from work with extra speed today because Friday is finally here. I’m even a little faster to get into the things I’ve been waiting to do all week. Maybe other people need a helmet when IContinue reading “The Weekend”

Wednesday #13 Roof

The rough, tongues lay quietly underneath my flannel pajamas as I listened to the first birds beginning to wake from from their sleep.  Slowly, the light touches my bare toes and I feel the slow creep of warmth over my body.  A warm blanket.  Silence in the city.  No one else is awake, not evenContinue reading “Wednesday #13 Roof”

Tuesday #12 Stuck

I think today’s prompt word belongs to Pooh! The moment I looked at the word for Day #12 – stuck, I immediately pictured Pooh stuck in a hole trying to get his honey. I know many of us can related to the this word because we’ve all been here during our creative process. I reallyContinue reading “Tuesday #12 Stuck”

Day #10 Pick

Nothing like a lazy and quiet Sunday to nap in while the sun streams in through windows.  I feel like a comfortable cat in her pile of blankets and pillows.  Then, I woke and realized I worked in The Art Shoppe today.  While I play shop girl in Minneapolis, my mind went through the 31Continue reading “Day #10 Pick”

Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!

Friday nights during the month of October are about baking pink glittered brains inside my clay oven until midnight.  I fill witch’s cauldrons with sparkling green goo bubbles.  What would a witch stall at a market place sell right now?  Well, eyeball soup and brains on a silver platter.  Everything on an inch scale orContinue reading “Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!”

We’re All Fans Today

I think I made a new friend by the end of yesterday.  It was pink and in a bottle.  This wasn’t the kind of spirit I wanted to drink but it stopped the gurgle.  Well, no matter what the day we must continue with our goal this month in prompts.  I hope you enjoyed myContinue reading “We’re All Fans Today”

Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit

The middle of the week is here and I started to laugh when I saw the prompt for Day # 6.  The word spirit didn’t bring to mind anything spooky, instead it conjured up the image of a flask of hard liquor.  Yes, it’s been that kind of day and I’m not a drinker.  IContinue reading “Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit”
