Somehow my #AccountaClub post from Friday never published. I assume that was due to your typical, run-of-the-mill computer gremlins and not due to anything I did.
Couldn’t have been me.
I got outside a bit on Friday at the Botanic Gardens, and the poppies were up and blooming. It was relatively hot but lovely, and so nice to get away from the constant barrage of information.
Did the same for much of the weekend, though now I’m back to full informational overload. It’s a bright day today, somewhere between cloudy and sunny with those thin, thin clouds it’s sometimes tough to tell from pale blue sky, and it’s unusually quiet.
And I don’t mind.
Onward we go to plow through Monday. Have a productive one.

It must be Thursday, because here we are with a ten word photo prompt!
Using the photo above for inspiration, write a ten word story. Easy peasy.
Ready? Here’s mine.
Dawn captured, Pagonia teleported back home to the always-night.
I had a night filled with detailed, vivid dreams of strange places and strange people. At one point I waved to an otter.
It waved back.
Very odd night of dreams.
Today I’m only half in this world, with something still trying to solve the night’s problems, whatever they were. I can’t remember them at all.
I have more grounded issues, anyway, like I keep forgetting to run the dishwasher. That’s not much of a challenge, and yet…I’ll get that one off the list today. It’s not like it’s a difficult one.
I guess I’m in a bit of a fog, both figurative and literal, so I need to go shake it off. Just the metaphorical, though, the literal is on its own.
Have a great Wednesday.
My workout was so much fun while I was doing it, it was Becca, one of my favorite trainers at Daily Burn, following Boogie (nickname) yesterday, a newer trainer and another favorite. But my muscles are currently rebelling.
Should be an interesting day.
And good luck to me tomorrow.
I’m a fan of the sneaky workout though, it’s tough but doable at the time, but afterward you kind of feel like you’ve been through the washing machine. Typing feels strenuous.
Yesterday we had so much rain, it fell in sheets, and then, when it was over, everything looked so fresh. But it’s rain again today.
So it goes.
I am off to solve the world’s problems. Have a great Tuesday.
Back for this too, I guess, though it’s pretty clear how I’m feeling lately. Especially if you saw yesterday’s photo prompt.
Writing has been at a minimum, though I’ve been thinking about projects. I may dig into one of them later today, so that counts, right?
It’s been one of those weeks where I try to to do little things and big things and everything goes at least a little bit wrong. So there’s that.
Exercise front, five days, five workouts, though it was tough this week, a real grind. I didn’t even enjoy today’s yoga-ish workout, it was essentially three moves over and over, slightly altered, and that’s not my favorite.
So I’m a bowl full of sunshine in general, then.
How was your week?

So we’re back with the photo prompts but you can probably tell from my offering my mood has not improved.
Which would be tough without some serious reversal of some very bad things, but here we are and here we will write a ten word story.
So, using the above image, write a ten word story. Exactly ten words. Yes you may have a title, I won’t send those nice guys after you.
“Take a joke!” he yelled as the demons restrained her.
Anyone else at the “Does anything really matter” portion of the apocalypse or is it just me?
Mostly I’d like to drown my horror in ice cream, but I’m not sure there’s enough in the universe, and also I don’t think I want ice-cream-based arteries, though the jury’s still out on that.
People react in the most bewildering of ways to the impending doom, including clinging to solutions that are not solutions but exacerbations of problems. As though that one thing will see us clear.
But it will not.
If we get out from under this situation, we will be digging for decades and we may not ever get to the bottom of the rubble. Cheerful, no?
I am a long way from lighthearted and irreverent.
So here we go into a Tuesday that will feel like it stretches on into next Tuesday as the days seem to lately, but I wish you the very best in it.
