W is for Weekends

Saturday and Sunday are the two shortest days of the week. They are never long enough, Monday sneaks up to begin the work and school week before you realize that the weekend ever began. It is a time for outings with the baby.

The chance to go to the park, out to eat or window shop is something that we haven't done in months. Slowly we are getting back into the habit of going out to do things just because we can. It is nice to be able to go out with the baby, just the two of us and be able to drive.

The invitations to church came early on, and we gave it a try. The jury is still out on whether or not we'll continue to go. It all depends on how the baby does with the crowd on a continuing basis.

Another perk is the ability to allow the baby to watch Saturday mornign cartoons, what there is left of them anyway. I noticed recently that “Land of the Lost” is now on; I vaguely remember it from when I was a child and the baby seems to enjoy it. She also enjoys the covered porch and riding her bicycle down the sidewalk.

Sunny days are rather enjoyable with the morning sun giving just enough warmth to make it pleasant outside. It is nice to be able to open the windows let in the fresh air while I sit and watch the baby play. I should consider an outdoor table set so we can have lunch out there on pretty days. The warmer weather means more picnics, since we are no longer waiting for appointments we will be having them in the park and on the front porch.

Weekends are now reserved for me and my little girl to have fun. We are rather enjoying ourselves.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
