Bubbles and comfort zones…

From Her Diary

soap-bubbles-801927_640I have always lived a quiet safe little life and have been happy or so I thought, but lately I have been feeling restless and bored.  Surely, there is more to life than predictable days and uneventful weeks plodding along year after year.  I want to go new places, try new things, meet people who are different than me, have adventures and excitement, and maybe even fall in love. It is going to be hard and I am scared, but I am going to burst the bubble of my comfort zone and go after everything I want in life. Okay, that’s decided and after some more planning and a good nights sleep I will take my first step tomorrow,…maybe.

It started with a flicker…

The first minute was nothing really.There was just a flicker like a skipped heartbeat in time.  But within moments that flicker burst into flames filling his vision, his whole world.  What he was seeing was all he wanted to see, something so beautiful, almost too beautiful to bear.  His newborn daughter.

It just takes a little spunk…

listenI’m telling you, big guy,together we can do this. It’s fine and dandy to be their best friend and all that,but ya gotta remember who’s boss. With a little effort and teamwork,we will have our humans trained in no time.They really do need a lot of discipline and a firm paw to be good and well-behaved devoted pet people. Just do as I say and they will worship us before you can say woof.

The Umbrella Tree…

 I am linking to Two Shoes Tuesday, the prompt this week is,
UMBRELLA–UNDER

And linking to Five Sentence Fiction, the prompt is,
DIVERSIONS

umbrella tree2

Like all children sometimes she thought life was just too complicated and confusing. What always helped her work out the puzzle of life was to go down the road to her magic place under the old Umbrella tree. She would sit there and let her mind wander where it would and before long the complexities and confusion would seem smaller and less troublesome. She was no longer a child but at times life still seemed an impossible puzzle and she would seek a diversion to help her recapture the contentment and tranquility that had slipped away. That’s why today she finds herself walking down the road to the Umbrella tree where she will sit and let her mind wander and soon all the pains and problems of life will ease and the magic place will soothe her soul.

Looking for family…

Today I am linking to
Five Sentence Fiction
the prompt this week is
Family

catandkitI thought I had found the perfect place with the best people for us to live with quietly and peacefully. The people here surprised me and I am not easily surprised. They talk sweet and nice, but they don’t love us or even like or understand us and they certainly don’t respect us.  When they started teasing and playing rough with the kid, my kid, I knew we had to leave before they broke his spirit.  So, here we are on the road again looking for a safe place to live, a sanctuary, a family.

Fantasy and entrances…

This story I am linking to
Five Sentence Fiction
the prompt
ENTRANCE
and
Two Shoes Tuesday
the prompt
FANTASY/FOOL

chapel-673934_640In the fantasy the doors opened wide and she made a grand entrance walking down the aisle to her handsome Prince Charming.  The reality was she and her not so handsome but very charming Prince were young fools running off to  the Justice of the Peace.  She didn’t have a beautiful white dress, bouquet of roses, diamonds, cake and champagne just a simple dress, a carnation corsage, a gold band, cookies and some wine. No big party with lots of guests and gifts just her and the Prince, the Justice and his wife. But the reality of fifty years of happily ever after far surpassed the fantasy of a silly young girl and her Prince Charming.
