Friday Flowers

I’ve seen a number of posts today labeled as Friday Flowers, and given the profusion of blooms around here, I thought I’d throw a few of my own in today, with the subclass of purple. They are all from the area paralleling my driveway. Enjoy!

Lucy Chats

Hello again, its me, Lucy One White. My Mama Steph uses writing words sometimes (aka Daily post/prompt). I Lucy don’t do that, cause I don’t like nobody bossing me around. However, as it turns out, I know a little something about some of this week’s words. These words are infect, thin, pedigree, slight, forest, and […]

Maybe This Year

Apples are fickle around here. Actually, that’s true of most fruit trees. Our “official” last frost date is May 15, but sometimes its warm early, and the trees get carried away and bloom early. A neighbor’s peach tree had gorgeous blooms in early April. A hard freeze after blossoms are fully open markedly reduces a […]

I’ll Take the Forest

Forest. One of my favorite places. Sgeoil posted about this just yesterday, writing that the woods are where she feels most at home. I agree. However, today’s prompt reminded me of an experience that illustrated that each person has a different comfort zone. This episode occurred long ago, the summer of 1978. I was living […]

Why Wasn’t I Informed?

Good morning, its me, Lucy One White. Why Wasn’t I Informed?  I Lucy am forced to say this often, as it seems that I am left uninformed about very important matters. A bowl may be placed in front of me while I am in a snit, and I will not be informed that it contains […]

Hurry Up!

Good morning, its me Lucy One White. While Friday is my usual day for writing, I am going to do some extra writing today, because the word rapid is something I have very strong feelings about. Most things that arise in me have a strong sense of urgency. I need what I need and I […]

If you’ve got it, flaunt it!

Spring’s got it this year. The blooming trees are glorious, as are the bulbs and early plants. The other morning, as I was heading out early on my bike, the air was still.  Every few feet, I experienced a different scent–each tree in bloom was making its own distinct contribution, and without wind or automobile […]

Homeowner Triathlete

I’ve been encountering some schedule and fitness issues recently. Last week, we finally got a few days of badly needed rain. This messed a little with training plans. While I saw one hardy runner out in the downpour, I was not so inclined. And while I might consider running in the rain, forget biking. Too […]

Wearing Your Heart on Your Sleeve

To do it or not Wearing your heart on your sleeve Its your heart, your call.   Wearing your heart on your sleeve refers to someone who openly expresses their emotions. I’ve heard it used in both derogatory and laudatory contexts, which is not surprising given how loaded the expression of emotion is for many […]

Tantruming for Adults

Tantrum. An outburst Responding to overwhelm. Times up. Let it go.   I find that sometimes it is healthy to “have a fit and fall in it”. Really feeling your emotions and expressing what is going on. A strategy I have used with myself and others, (and this is not original to me) is to […]

Bad Dog, Stephanie!

Today’s writing prompt of cur took me in a somewhat absurd direction–that of the daffynition.  With apologies in advance, here’s your dose for the day. Watch your step! Occur: Exclamation when one is disappointed in the dog’s behavior. Recur: Breeding dog, or a puppy. Currant: The expression of an angry dog. Current: The cost of […]
