Good morning Friends 🙂
Let’s go out and find a cozy coffee shop somewhere for our cup this morning. On Wednesday, my boyfriend’s relatives came to visit as well as to install a new kitchen floor for us. The house is quite full and there is no such thing as a quiet corner anywhere. The sky is slightly grey but warm enough that we shouldn’t need more than a light sweater. Perhaps we will even find a place that sells guilt-free tasty things 🙂
Did you know today is World Fair Trade Day? I didn’t until I went to look for an unusual holiday to share with you. I think it’s a great idea, too bad it hasn’t made its way to the calendar yet. Perhaps one day it will be as big as Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. The world could certainly use it.
How was your week? Mine went by in another flash. If I sit very still I can remember little shreds of the week. I worked a lot in the school district trying to earn as much money as possible before the end of the school year. Is it normal for school to extend into the middle of June? Coming from the Midwest, there are so many concepts and routines to get used to still.
I belong to a writer’s critique group, the Femme Fatales, within a larger community called Scribophile. Have you heard of it? We work very well together in our own little corner of a huge community of writers of all shapes, sizes and obsessions. Lately I have been writing short stories based on prompts taken from all over the blogging community. Some get past the first 100 words to become a submitted piece for my group to review.
The other kinda cool thing I discovered this week was a whole community of short Tweet stories, poems, thoughts, etc. There is a prompt site called Semper Sum that has categorized each hashtag prompt by day of the week. So you would be able to join others for #haikuchallenge today and #xass tomorrow. There are a vast number more of hashtag challenges on the site. Check it out if you are interested.
Do you write short stories or Tweetpoems? Feel free to share your tweetables and we can learn a little something from each other 🙂
Well, my friend, I think one cup of coffee is good enough for today. I just started a new medication last night and I am still rather sleepy. I always look forward to our visits.
Take care 😀
