Ten Things of Thankful – Winter

It’s thankful time.



Good morning.  I thought I’d share ten things for which I am thankful in winter.  What? you say.  This girl hates, despises, abhors winter.  Yes, it is true.  Winter is my least favorite season.  I could go on and on about the cold and the wind and the dark, but instead, in the spirit of the TToT blog hop which is hosted each week by Josie2Shoes, I decided to share some positives, some simple items of winter gratitude.

I haiku, do you?

six-sentence-storiesIvy from Uncharted hosts this blog hop.

Six sentence story – dress.  I’m delighted that the six sentences can be any genre, any way, blah, blah, blah.  I’m sharing some haiku which are loosely sentences following the 5-7-5 pattern of the traditional Japanese poetry.

Six Sentence Story – Dry

A new six sentence story.

“Almost there, Sadie,” he breathlessly said to the bundle in his arms.

Spike leaned  against a big oak, the bark cutting into his back, as he adjusted the body he was carrying inside a burlap blanket, easing the strain on his muscles, trying to balance his  burden.

It hadn’t rained in these parts for weeks and weeks, since the change of the seasons, and Spike crushed the dry leaves with the footfalls of his heavy boots as he ambled on through the woods.

His view through the bare trees enabled him to see far into the forest, to the specific spot he sought, between the three white birches; he could even make out the pile of dirt next to the hole he had dug last night.

He reached the hastily fashioned grave and dropped the body in with a gentle thud, using his hands to shovel and his boots to kick the soil, filling in the hole.

He fashioned a cross out of two birch limbs and paused for a moment, remembering Sadie, his best and loyal friend.


Thank you, Ivy, for hosting the six sentence story blog hop each week.  I’ve been a scarce participant for quite awhile – my focus is scattered and the words are hiding, but I promised myself I would participate in one of my favorite writing link-ups this week.


Ten Things of Thankful – Remember Me?

Good morning. Be thankful

Ok, I know it has been awhile.  A long while.  Not that I am not thankful – I am every day in so many ways.  I guess I haven’t been feeling like sharing.  That Nike tagline “Just Do It” is speaking to me so . . . .
