Rent to Own

It’s time for 6 Sentence Stories. Denise at girly on the edge hosts this querky little blog hop in which a cue word is given and people torture themselves by writing a story related to the word using no more and no less than six sentences. This week’s  cue is  SHED.


Join us to learn how you can finance your future at one of our upscale residences. Imagine yourself conveniently located next to the often unrinsed receptacles of the recycling bins. Enjoy fine dining amongst the tantalizing aromas of rotting produce, and the leftover carcasses of rotisserie chickens. Looking for that special vacation home away from home? For a reasonable price you can purchase a timeshare in any number of abandoned shipping cartons, cardboard boxes, or holiday storage containers. Inquire at Field Mouse Condominiums located in the shed next to the big red barn.






I don’t know if you remember this scene from the Disney film, but I think my dog has something like this setup with the neighborhood mutts in the area. At the very least, she seems to have a thing with the Border Collie named Woody who lives next door.20180521_164843

Have you ever wanted to do something that you know is in your best interest, but specific people who are often trying to tell you what to do with your life are so overly invested in you doing it that you resist just because they want you to do it? I’m in that sort of immature war with myself right now.  I just have to stop it. I hate it when I get like this. I wouldn’t mind so much if these people thought it was their influence that got me to do these things, it’s just the fact that it encourages them to continue to stick their nose into my business where it does not belong.  I can tell them to back off, and I have, but it makes no difference. Typically, I can honestly say most days it doesn’t bother me, but I’ve been kind of soft over the past 6 months and a little more sensitive, and there are certain topics in life that I’m just more sensitive about and this particular thing is one of them.

I really need to find something fun to do today. I feel like I’ve been wasting a lot of time lately. It frustrates me when I waste too much time. I know by some other people’s standards my time doesn’t look wasted, but by mine, seems to be what matters to me. I really should be working, but I don’t think there’s a chance in hell that’s going to happen today.


Maybe it WAS a Dinosaur?

When Julie first arrived, one of my sisters had bought her what I thought was a giant snake. Now that I look at the photo, I see that it had feet, and spines up its back. Perhaps it was a gator, or maybe a dinosaur? Either way she dragged it around the house taking out furniture and anything else that was in its wake. They got really annoying. So of course, not having learned my lesson, after having thrown it out and broken her of it, I bought her a new one on Amazon last week. She seems to love it… And we’re off!

It still National Photo month so if you’d like to link up you can do so here.

May is National Photo month

Here’s the link up if you’re interested  in posting a photo! 

My photos today are from Google Earth I’ve been kind of traveling the world this weekend. Kind of vicariously! I’ve been everywhere from Mount Everest to Chernobyl, to the Pacific Ocean, to as  you can see, Easter Island, Tibet, and Nairobi.
