What do you see?

As the sky cleared the water started to ebb. It was as if the atmosphere was sucking the clouds from the sky and the water from the land. Dina stared out and gasped. What was she seeing? Were those tombstones? Dina had lived in this town her whole life and never heard about any burial grounds, nor had she ever heard any stories about the town without this beautifully flowing river with the strong bridge bringing two groups of people together. Grabbing her phone she looked to see if she had service. She did not, not here on the bank of the river. She would call her grandma as soon as she got in the car. Although grandma was starting to forget things she always remembered her childhood, as it had been so pleasant as far as her stories had told. Who would have been buried there? Why was it turned into a river? Did the corpses in their metal boxes been polluting the water? So many questions but she wasn’t sure she would ever get the all the answers.

The Monday Peeve

My peeve is when people make commitments and then don’t follow through. Today I had some errands to run, a doctor’s appointment, and had to get blood drawn. I tried rushing through after my doctors appointment lasted longer than I had anticipated because I knew I needed to be home for the window company that stopped by on Saturday. They knocked on my door, the young man gave his spiel, we were on speaker phone with the woman to confirm our appointment for today at 5:00 pm. At 4:50 I made sure I cleaned off the dining room table and took the dog out so he wouldn’t bother us. I sat and waited, wanting to make dinner but not wanting to start and then not finish, and I had to call a realtor who was trying to contact me. At 6:03 I started making dinner. No one ever came, no one ever called. Now, what I thought would be a great company to look into for new windows and doors is checked off my list. If they can’t even call then what happens if one of my windows leaks?
