As the storm clouds began to roll over the low range mountains, we could hear the silence and the smell of moss and fresh cut grass filled our nostrils and our minds, reminding us that this green comes when the clouds roll in.  

Clouds roll on the land 
Covering the ground with life 
Fear was never here.

Three Things Challenge

Written for Di: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/08/14/three-things-challenge-327/


He says I’m chubby

If he tells me one more time that I look chubby I think I am going to lose it. Does the man who inseminated me not know what pregnant looks like? How on earth can one man go from a loving, romantic lover to a sarcastic, lazy louse in the matter of hours?

Fibbing Friday

Di is hosting Fibbing Friday!: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/08/14/fibbing-friday-14th-august/

Below are 10 questions, the answers to which are entirely up to you.
The idea though is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly or even outrageous, in your response as you evade the truth.

Write a post with your answers and tag it “Fibbing Friday” or #FibbingFriday, then link back to this post so that others can enjoy your answers and maybe join in too!

Schmutzwortsuche: Word of the Day

Melanie from sparksfromacombustiblemind https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2020/08/14/word-of-the-day-schmutzwortsuche/
decided this was the word of the day. Well, I had a laugh reading Di’s at pensitivity101; https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/08/14/word-of-the-day-schmutzwortsuche-2/


I remember when we were younger, probably around third grade, when we started hearing swear words, we used to look words up in the dictionary to see if they were “real” words or to see what the dictionary said it meant. Some I remember were: shit, ass, and yes, I will admit, penis. Hahaha! Now if you looked that up on the internet you would get a lot more than a definition of the male appendage.

My dad always had a dictionary in the bathroom. He would read a new word every day. I don’t know about you but I go in, do my business, then leave. I can sit anywhere else in the house to read.

So I don’t have anything funny to say about this word, it is one of those words that you hear once and never see again. I will have to post something if I see this word elsewhere in the future!
