Shame and inspiration

I pot plants (succulents, geraniums etc) and sell them to help raise funds when there’s a shortfall in subs to cover printing and postage costs for Positive Words and earlier this week delivered 20 to a sweet lady in her 80s who had just dug yet another garden bed in her yard (she has quite a few!) and needed plants to fill it. I’ll call you again soon, she told me, I’m sure I’ll be making more.

I’d been feeling a bit tired and overwhelmed after a busy weekend and she put me to shame! I certainly hope I’m up to digging new garden beds when I’m in my 80s 🙂

I came home singing High Hopes (Oops, there goes another rubber tree…) and if I feel a bit tired in future I’ll remind myself of that lady planting all her plants 🙂

What an inspiration!

Has anyone inspired you lately?


A writing prompt to get the week started . . .

Mysterious bumps began appearing in the lawn.

I hope it generates lots of great stories and poems 🙂

Old flames

Today’s writing prompt:

Old flames.

While outside watering before dark {it’s very dry here already 😦 } I had an idea and decided to introduce an old flame into my NaNoWriMo story.

Not sure what will come of it but time will tell 🙂


Today’s writing prompt:

No fixed abode.


Today’s writing prompt:

He looked over his neighbour’s fence and saw . . .


Rural Living

Today’s writing prompt:

“Let’s escape to the country!”

No prizes for guessing what I’m watching on TV tonight 🙂


Today’s writing prompt:

One drop, then another. Finally they dared to hope the drought was over.

I’m listening to the sound of rain on the roof 🙂 No drought yet, although recent forecasts have predicted a very hot dry summer 😦

We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, if we have to, but for now my garden is surely smiling 🙂
