A Wednesday Visit to MY World! Welcome!!!

Each week Three Word Wednesday gives writers and those who would like to be writers a mid week prompt of creativity.. three words are chosen and we attempt to write something from the chosen words.. This weeks fine words are.. dread.. grasp.. and pacify..




Beneath the Bridge

he faces each day with dread
demons holding sanity just out of his grasp
a bottle will pacify

My Grandmother ironed with one of these ancient smoothing irons.. she heated hers on a pot-bellied .. coal burning...stove.. It now shares space with other old treasures on a shelf in my dining room.. I never look at it without thinking of her.. I love old things.. I admit to being spoiled by all the wonders of our modern society.. Can you even imagine having to survive in a kitchen like the one pictured here?..

Although it rarely happens.. today I was lucky enough to have a picture for Watery Wednesday that would also meet the challenge for the theme of "Clouds" offered by Lensday..

On this hot.. lazy day at the shore the water was wonderful and the clouds simply beautiful.. Puffy and white they hung in the blue sky.. changing into many things as they floated silently over head.. mesmerizing the eyes..the wonderful combination of salty air.. warm water and a beautiful sky... a sweet balm to sooth the mind and renew the spirit.. I surely need a trip to the shore!!

What a day! As Wednesdays usually go I guess it wasn't too bad.. Expecting and needing rain for the garden... I was still selfishly glad for the sunshine.. Plumb tuckered out by my new exercise routine.. dog walking 101.. I was glad that Dave was able to get a walking path mowed for me and our newest pet.. I don't mind walking and walking and walking till he finds the most perfect spot.. but it sure is easier to walk at 1am if the ground beneath your feet is not covered with tall grass and prickly weeds.. I am indeed a lucky woman... I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog and into my simple world today.. Thanks for stopping by!.. Have a great night!

Patsy, perhaps I shouldn't admit it but I too have ironed with one of those old fashioned smoothing irons - heated on a stove and hot enough to brand. They get the creases out very quickly but you can't afford to make any mistakes as once a mistake has been ironed in it is almost impossible to get the crease out!
