Hi Everybody. I hope you had a great week.
All is fine in my little piece of the world but let me tell you one day it was full of wild life that set Piper off just a’barking like she wanted to chase them down and then play.
It was returning from a dog walk when we looked up and there was a bear lumbering through the neighbors yard! Like holy sh*t. Piper went berserk and wanted to chase him. Ugh….
Then not two minutes later we spot a deer sitting under a tree watching us.
We live in a rural area and wildlife is not unusual around here but still makes me step back and remember that this is their home too.
Hey, did you get around to reading my blogs this week?
Of course you did….maybe you want to check them out again.
In Auntie Says… I started a new thing called “Auntie’s Adages”. There are so many old sayings that so many of the kids just don’t get. They’re a great spark for conversation. This week was about “A Penny Earned is a Penny Saved“–do you know what that means? It may be a bit different. I also wrote about Kids in the Grocery Store...great idea.
My Twisted Writer Brain is finishing up with Short Story Month. I talked about the difference between Genre and Literary Stories and knowing your audience…so important and then I gave you some assigned tasks to help you with your stories. I sure hope you had a look.
As we near the end of May, the weather is unpredictable. One day we’re in a down and the next day I’m sitting outside with a friend sharing lattes.
It’s all good though because I know I live in the world’s most norther desert and give it a couple of weeks and we’ll be complaining about the heat.
