Can I Get Away With R for Random? (Microfiction Muse and Things I'm Loving This Thursday Too!)

It's a running here and there kind of day for me since Easter is around the corner.

My mind feels like it's roaming all over the place with random plans and ideas. Joseph's communion is on April 30th and I have that planning too. I need a genie, I think.

Before I get all the kids in the car, I want to share my Microfiction with you today. My friend, Diane invites us to write a short, short story in 140 characters or less (including spacing and punctuation) in response to a select photograph for Microfiction Muse.

Here is my microfiction:

After helping the last kid with her backpack, Ashley closed that kindergarten door and clocked in as an international spy.

Continuing with my random list of blog things to do:

My friend, Teresha, over at Marlie and Me, asks "What am I Loving This Thursday?"

I'm loving...

  • reading time with Jillian (she's taught herself to read!)
  • new recipes
  • watching the boys play basketball (with little fighting)
  • quick doctor's visit - I have my horse pill medication now.
  • planting flowers with the kids
I'll come by to see all of you very soon :)

Ok what is it with places having Easter one week and then First Communion the next. Families gathering two weekends in a row for celebration? So many can't do it because it's too much time/money/distance/etc and so many others can't do it because ummm it's too much family in too short a time ;) Welcome to my life next year!

You have reminded me it's time to plant something with my kids. And good job to Miss Jillian - she's ready for first grade instead of kindergarten.

And love the microfiction - a spy. Good twist!

Life is random, and fun, and mysterious. Life if full of stories, proving ordinary people, live extraordinary lives.

Great post!

I was having a pity party Thursday. Why can't I get better? That kinda stuff. :(

Ivy's heart has been broken. She was all set to try for junior rider of the year, this year. 4-H district and then state. But we changed riding instructors and the instructor we left refused to sign the eligibility card. Said she missed too many 4-H meeting. But we know she did not. Ivy is discovering the world does have bad people in it. :(

She will go next year and whip 'em all.

I forgot to say how awesome Jillian is for teaching herself to read. I wish I could be out planting flowers. Maybe soon.

Loved your flash fiction. You ROCK!!!!

Awww gardening...looking forward to some warmer fresh air here too. :)

I'm so impressed with Jillian. I'm not surprised. You have to keep on your toes with all those boys to lead. Gardening sounds like a great activity I could try with Deaglan.
