The day dawned grey and wet. The laundry longed to be sorted and washed.
The sun peeked through the clouds and the muddy mess in the backyard beckoned.
The dirty dishes called out to be detailed.
The browning bananas begged to be baked into bread.
Dinner needed to be dished, laundry needed to be hung and folded.
A blog sought to be written, others’ waited for feedback.
Dusk settled grey and wet. The only thing left was my book.
I just want to finish my book.
I am participating in the 10th annual Slice of Life Story Challenge hosted by Two Writing Teachers. This is the 27th day of the 31-day challenge, the first birthday of our tiny pups, and the first day of Spring Break.
