I’m a day late (but not a dollar short) to write about yesterday’s prompt from Kate!
It’s been a sludgy brain week. After having Covid in June, the cold that hit me in July has seriously worn out its welcome. This is my first clear-minded chance to write in what seems like an eternity!
Chance. Opportunity. Happening.
Is it by chance that I met a friend at the grocery store today and made her smile? I think not. Our times are in God’s hands, and he knows who needed a smile this morning.
I also had a chance to get out in the heat and trim a few sad, spent blooms off my flowers that are wilting badly from lack of rain. The plants look so sad, but I’m not carting my watering can out there 52 times a day! They’ve got to grow deeper roots next year. (Harsh, aren’t I?)
But wait, there’s more! I had the chance to talk to Hubby on the phone, who is currently hiking a section of the Appalachian Trail. I got to hear about all sorts of new friends he’s made along the way.
And stop. Now you’re all up-to-the-minute on my hot Saturday!
Oh, wait, I have to add one more item to the list . . . the dog is taking advantage of the current chance to bark at a murder of crows in the trees out front. Who decided a family of crows was a murder???
Each week Kate Motaung offers a one-word prompt, then encourages us to write. “Write for five minutes on the word of the week. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write.“
