Life stories

Two sisters, 11 and a half and 16 and a half. Both born in the month of November, died on the same day in July 1901. In death, together in the same grave. In the next grave, a woman, same last name, died the same year, at 47 and a half. Their mother? 
What were their stories, in life, and in death?

Porpoises

Seagulls bobbing on the water. A flock of porpoises playing nearby. Breaking the surface, blowing, diving. Up and down, until they are out of view. The birds kept their cool, and I had received a treat from Mother Nature.

Mindful writing prompt #32: In Matters of Rest



Sleep. Rest. Rest. Sleep. Sleep. Rest. 
So connected. So ordinary. So not the same. 
So connected. So... expected.
Sleeping, not sleeping, not resting. Anytime, anywhere. 
Waking up... unrested. Exhausted.

Perpetuity

Perpetual rain, huge drops hitting the windows, hanging on for dear life before being driven sideways across the panes by the wind. The perpetual story of this winter.

The Versatile Blogger Award

When I went through my list of e-mails after getting home from my holiday, a wonderful surprise was waiting for me in one of them. 
Freya Pickard of the Pure Haiku and the Dragonscale Clippings blogs had nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you soooo much for thinking of me, Freya!


There are a few rules that go along with the award:
1. In a post  on your blog, nominate 5 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

Here are seven facts that you probably 
don't not know about me:
1. I can't stand exercising.
2. I love transitioning from night to day by having my morning coffee with a hot bath.
3. I am a strict purse organizer. I can't handle having things just lying loose in my purse.
4. My diet consists of low carb/high fat food. I feel good and I'm loosing weight.
5. I love red wine.
6. My camera is with me 24/7.
7. I had never written anything before I started blogging, and discovered that I love writing. 

My nominees are, in a random order:
