Ahem. I’m at a loss for words these days. All of a sudden, I got nuthin’ honey. No complaints, no childhood reminiscing, Reiner is behaving himself, (hence the no complaints point above). All is good. But as you know, without conflict, without some juicy bit of gossip, story-telling falls flat.
For instance, the fact that oregano blossoms have a very gentle fragrance like lilac is mildly interesting but really, not fodder for a blog post. Ditto the fact that I spent an enjoyable half day processing thorianite crystals the old-fashioned way, by panning with water.
From my blog reading today, Sheena reminded me about the felt figures from Sunday School. The kind that are used to illustrate the Bible stories. A question: do they still use the felt figures?
Speaking of felt figures, if you have not by now found this blogger, Nicole Belanger Smeltzer, do pay her site a visit. Sweet and charming describes only a tenth of the impact.
Oh, yes! As regards religion, kinda/sorta, something else I learned today over on Michelle from the Green Study’s new blog: Followers of a vegan diet are not entirely in agreement on whether eating honey is allowable.
I had no idea. I am a vegetarian, more or less. If nothing else is on the menu, I will eat meat. I suppose I fall into the “flexitarian” category. I like that. Flexibility, you know? But it also feels a bit like cheating. That’s where the religion reference comes in. The commandments of a vegan diet vs the lack of commandments for a flexitarian one.
Regardless of your views, drop on over to encourage Michelle as she makes the month of August a healthy and mindful one.
Today I received a nice surprise from Frankie of Trucker Turning Write. I do enjoy his writing and am delighted that he is back after a short stay away. Liz awarded him The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. He in turn sent a shout out to fourteen folks that he felt worthy of the distinction. Including yours truly. I thank you kindly, dear sir.
Well, then, to today’s Daily Prompt. We are invited to write a post about any topic we want, in whatever form or genre, but make sure it features a slice of cake, a pair of flip-flops, and someone old and wise.
Uh-oh. I’ve got only 100 words left! Whattle I do?
Fake it, that’s what!
Summer. Flip-flop weather. I like my new flip-flops. I wear them pretty much exclusively. Every time I do, I feel scandalous. Know why? When I was a girl, mom, who was of course someone considerably older and certainly wiser than I, refused to buy us flip-flops if they were of the thong variety. For her, they were salacious, dirty, and disgusting.
Either that, or the strap variety was cheaper.
There. That was easy. Piece of cake.
