Saturday Evening Post

The week has been one filled with thoughts of friends and family as the holidays approach. I am blessed to have my heart with me and my friends are always a call away. Pull up a chair and grab a drink, we need to chat.

I am already planning our small Thanksgiving dinner, just the two of us. I think I'll take the opportunity to get Shorty to help me in the kitchen with the preparation. The menu has to be simple as a result so that she can use everything that we need, except for the knives. 

She will enjoy it, and this is the month that I begin having larger items for her birthday and Christmas delivered and hide them. If I leave them in the box she won't open it because it is not addressed to her. She is a respectful child.

We will be doing some crafts for the time she is out of school during the holidays, luckily the supply list is short.

Cupcake cups.
Construction paper.
Cardboard tubes.
Tissue Paper.
Pipe Cleaners.

A few odds and ends. Now what are you planning for the holidays?

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.
