What WAS My Neighbor Thinking?

It’s been crazy around here as I get ready for the South Carolina Writers’ Workshop, 21st Annual Writers’ Conference. I’m helping with the silent auction and my living room is full of items I have to take with me.  Hubby keeps eying the stacks and asking, ‘All that stuff has to fit in the trunk of your car?’ Um, yes? 😉

But prep work did not keep me from spending a recent day outside and giving my neighbor Don something to wonder about. Don’s a practical, down-to-earth kind of guy, retired. He works in his yard all day and I know he watches our place because he’s made observations like knowing when our son is home or away at college. We’re glad he sort of keeps an eye out, but I wonder what was going through his head a week or so ago when I spent that day outside.  A peek in my Writer’s Window will show you what he saw . . . and what I was doing.

Observations. Poet Mary Oliver has something to say about that in Cottage Quotes.  And I have a challenge to issue about it next month.

It’s another wonderful, rainy day in SC. Hope your day is wonderful, too.

    Great pic of the turtle…persistance pays off! I’m late stopping by, but glad things were so grand for the silent auction! 😉

    • Thanks, Roxanne. Persistence is the operative word in writing, too! The silent auction was a hit and I’m glad it’s over for this year. Now back to writing. Putting a challenge out there on November 1. Join me?
