Thursday’s Special, watching the swarm…

Today, Lost In Translation Thursday’s Special prompt is

SWARM

Here is a picture of the boys watching a swarm of pigeons.

look

Well, maybe it wasn’t a swarm.
But there were more than two.

Jack and Teddy do like to watch the birds.
Although, they are a bit intimidated when a hawk
perches on the balcony railing.
Even the small red-tail hawks are bigger than they are.

Time and thanks…

Hilary at Feeling Beachie and Obi at Eloquent Rambles
have four statements to complete.

Here I go

  1. I just can’t seem to get everything done and it is driving me crazy.
  2. This time of year is beautiful.
  3. If I could I would go back in time, stay in school, and become a radiologist.
  4. Reading makes me lose track of time.

My fill in’s seem to be all about

To day I celebrate the small things that are big things to me.

I don’t drive so I rely on friends to take me to work and home again
and everyday someone is always willing to take the time to do this for me.
I have the best friends!

The days are shorter and getting cooler.
The trees are changing color and leaves are falling.
Everything is so beautiful.

I love reading and can’t imagine what it would be like if I couldn’t.
I am thankful for the teachers who taught me to love books
even though I didn’t like school.

Maybe she has a point.

But I wonder

is wisdom wasted on the foolish?

Wanting to be Julia……

The prompt for Five Sentence Fiction this week is

ENVY

sadwoman

 Everyone wanted to be Julia, to have her charmed life.   She had it all;  beauty, talent,  money, big house, cute kids, handsome husband.  She would sadly shake her head when      they would tell her how lucky she was and how they would gladly trade places with her.They didn’t know the truth, and would never believe, that she was afraid, abused,  devastated, depressed, alone, ashamed.  With a breaking heart she hid behind all the  things they envied and just wanted to be anyone but Julia.
