Thanks to Natalie, the Explorer, for hosting this prompt.

I would tell you that I am suffering from my allergies, and my insurance has flat out refused the recommended medicines so I have to use two nasal sprays daily instead of one to get the hopefully desired effect. Some days it works and some days it doesn’t.

Still struggling to write. The prompts aren’t helping so far. I used to look at the prompt and have an idea pop into my mind, but now I just look at it and then say “forget it!”

One of my daughters and family took me out for Mother’s Day Dinner on Wednesday. I had a great steak and it was like cutting butter. No struggling with gristle.

Have a great week, everyone.

Behind the Door!

By Tessa Dean May 2022

Walking along the outer stone wall we wondered what was behind it. The wall was too tall to see over and so we kept on walking along the outside and eventually, we came to a very small door. My husband Troy and I wondered what was behind the wall, but the little door was too small for us to go through. We wondered if it would even open. Troy played with the door latch and finally got it open, but we still couldn’t see what was inside as there was a wall a couple of feet inside the door and it blocked our vision. 

Our 3-year-old daughter could fit inside of the doorway, but we were afraid she wouldn’t listen to us and just glance inside and come right back out. We didn’t dare chance it and had to find another way to find out what was behind the wall. We walked all the way around and found another door this one was adult-sized and we were able to enter and see all the beautiful flowers that were growing inside along with lots of waterfalls. It was beautiful. I am so glad we were able to finally see what was behind the door and walls.

I would tell you that I am suffering from my allergies, and my insurance doesn’t want to cover the medicine that my doctor wants to use. So what else is new?

I am not writing much, but I have been working on doing more each time.

I didn’t finish NANO, but I am doing my first live stream in about 6 months time. Time to get back into life.

Have a great week, everyone.

What do you see # 131 – April 25,2022

Sadje’s rules:

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows two young girls standing outdoor looking at a book which both of them are holding jointly.

By Tessa Dean April 2022

“Monica and Suzanne, where are you?” Their mother, Karen, was shouting throughout the house. She had been in every room, so now she had to head outside to their huge yard. 

Still shouting their names, Karen started in the front yard and, finding no sign of the girls, she headed around back. She told the girls to stay out of the backyard as it was mostly woods back there, and she didn’t like them exploring that area. 

Karen saw flashes of color moving in the woods and shouted for the girls again. They were ignoring her, and she came up to them and found them studying a book of pictures. She caught sight of nudity, and she was surprised at them. She grabbed the book, and it was her teenager’s science book, and it just so happened that there were looking at the section on sex.

She tried explaining to the two young girls that they should not be looking at their brother’s school books. They had many questions and she knew it was time to explain sex to her girls, and she wasn’t looking forward to it.

Thanks to Natalie, the Explorer, for hosting this prompt.

I would tell you that I am suffering from my allergies. It seems they are worse this year, and more people than ever are suffering from them. It doesn’t help my breathing.

Still impatiently waiting for word from the assisted living facility. I am not the most patient person in the world, and my nerves are raw.

My aide is waiting for the assisted living to open, too, since she hopes to work there.

I am not writing much, but I have been working on doing more each time. I doubt I will complete NANO this month. I only set a goal of 5000 words and I am almost halfway there which is more than I have been writing.

Have a great week, everyone.

The three young men struggled to get a peek at the provocatively dressed young woman as she loaded her car’s backseat with shopping bags. Her miniskirt rode up each time she reached into the vehicle. 

She was unaware of the growing audience behind the store’s window. The men were talking among themselves about her outfit that was exposing more with every bag.
