Thanks to Natalie the Explorer for hosting this prompt.

Grab yourself a beverage and pull up a chair. If we were having coffee I would tell you that this week I found getting around on this walking boot getting easier and I am getting better at getting dressed with it on. I have to use a dressing stick, but it has gotten easier. I still don’t have an aide so it is up to me to get dressed by myself. I was used to having an aide during the week and only having to get dressed by myself on the weekends. Luckily I found an easier way to do it so it doesn’t take more than a few extra minutes. I was used to struggling by myself on the weekends, but practice does make perfect as they say.

Now for my writing. I am used to writing short stories, flash fiction or poetry. Every year I would start NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month), but until recently I never finished anything or had an interest to finish it and some years I never really got started. So I found one that I was actually interested in finishing. I worked on it and sent it to beta readers for critique and then started the rewrite and editing. I ended up doing some research on murder/mysteries and then decided to change it and now have to do another rewrite. After almost 2 months of not writing, not finishing NANOWRIMO camp, I have found my interest dwindling. Now some of that can probably be blamed on my Bipolar Disorder, but I have found that I probably bit off more than I can chew and when I went from one book to a series I became unfocused and started several books at once. Now I don’t even feel like finishing book one. So currently I am working on prompt writing for my blog instead. That is where I am most comfortable.

Now yesterday my daughter came over and we started going through my things as I am on the list for an assisted living facility and I won’t be able to take all of this stuff and I do have way more than an average person needs. She hauled several bags of trash and recycles out. Then we filled 3 kitchen sized bags of clothing for donations and a couple of bags with clothes not suitable for donation, plus 2 small boxes of books. It hardly looks like I made a dent in here except for where my clothes were hanging. We did cut them way back, but I still have a lot of clothes and may still have to downsize them. We ran out of time when her husband’s truck broke down and she had to go get him, but I was getting tired and sore anyhow so it was good that we ended there. I don’t know how long it will take to go through all of this and of course I have no idea when they will find me a place to go either. If we find something fast we will have to pick up the pace. I am not looking forward to moving again and into a facility, but for my health’s sake I don’t have a lot of choice.

Have a great week everyone.

wk 210 eerie

Lightning!

By Tessa Dean February 2021

As the lightning flashed outside the windows, it created eerie shadows. At every crash of thunder, I cringed in fear and closed my eyes.

ABSTRACT

CROWN

**********

Wannabe Princess

By Tessa Dean May 2021

Kelly Clark stared at the painting in the local museum. It was what they considered abstract. She wasn’t sure she liked it, but as she continued to look at it, she touched the cockeyed crown on her head and her bubbly laughter could be heard. The painting is just like me, abstract. She didn’t fix her crown.
