Daily Prompt: Ready, Set Go

Daily Prompt: Ready, Set Go.

I awoke this morning to darkness, a great dissapointment after the days of sun we’ve had. I look out of my window now and all I see is grey. The trees hunker under the ice and snow that’s gathered on their branches, they show no signs of life, their aura’s are undetectable to me. The smoke from my neighbours house is whisked away immediately upon its egress from the chimney, no gentle drifting upwards, no puffy, sweet smelling clouds of woodsmoke linger here today.

Inside, my dogs lay near the unlit fireplace, perhaps hoping I will light it and sit there with them, warm and cozy, protected from outside elements. Its tempting, I look into Hope’s deep brown eyes and want to join her, curl up on the sofa with a soft blanket, run my hands over her soft warm fur and tell her my secrets.

I hear the wind blowing around my house and shiver, I know I have to go out soon but I’m not ready to leave the protection of my warm home for the frigid deepfreeze that is Winnipeg.

About Reviewer Rose

Hi, my name is Rose, I'm no longer in the flush of youth, I have a common-law husband and two teenaged daughters, multiple pets, and more debt than I'm comfortable with! Anything sounding familiar? Well, its all too familiar to me and I plan on changing a few things around here. I'll keep the husband, kids and pets, but some things just need to change! I am embarking on a journey of discovery. Warning, this blog includes discovery of self, writing, learning and growing. There may be posts that you won't be comfortable reading, but I have supressed some things for so long, things I don't want to keep anymore, so will leave them here on these pages. I hope you will follow while I live, learn, heal, try, review and share, and I hope you can grow along with me in my pursuit of betterment!
