6 word stories

The fires just kept coming.

He loved her but she left.

Mountains are tall, men are small.

Friday can’t come any faster now.

Why are all the bluebirds singing?

Did you know about the mummy?

Can’t we all just get along?

Flower smell sweeter than your perfume.

If ever there was more time.

When the dinosaurs lived we didn’t.

Blocked

I think I’ve got writers block again. Maybe I’m just not quite settled in to my new situation. I’ve got a few great routines. In the morning Bronn and I go for a walk first thing, then when we get back I have coffee and he has breakfast, then I get dressed and have breakfast, then Bronn get his treat and I head to work. When I get home we go for a walk, I make my lunch while I am making my supper, and we are usually in bed by 9:30pm to read for a while. I’m out of bed by 6:15am.

It’s crazy how fast the day goes! Plus, I’ve been trying to hang out with my friends and my brother and his family. It seems busy and the next thing you know you sit back and realize you haven’t written anything lately, and what to write?? I’m too tired to write most of the time too. My brain is exhausted!!

How do i overcome this?

New Life

Well, it has been crazy busy for me the last little while and I have not made time to write. I wanted to write a novel in this November writing challenge but I haven’t even had a moment to collect my thoughts!!

I am loving the leap that I made! My job is great! It felt like it was meant to be, I only had one interview offer and I got the job. I also found a place to live with some pretty cool roommates! I’m enjoying it here for sure!!

It’s nice to be around friends again who want to hang out and we’ve done some really fun things around town! I really need to get on track for writing though, so there might be a few more random posts coming up here and there!! I’m still here though!!

Spooktober

So this month I decided to watch a horror movie every day (that I can, because obviously some nights get busier than others). There are 31 days in October…and I know that I will be skipping Thanksgiving weekend since I will be with my family and they don’t like scary movies…unless I can talk them into one! Or we watch Casper or Hocus Pocus or something family friendly. I have a few movies picked out…but basically this post is for recommendations!!

So far I watched The Bye Bye Man, and they Day before (which wasn’t October, haha) I watched Satanic which are both on Netflix and I didn’t find them very scary, although Satanic had a twist for sure.

I borrowed three from the library, tonight I plan to watch Life with Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. I also got 30 Days of Night which I surprisingly haven’t seen yet, and one called The Moth Diaries.

I have a few in my collection that I plan to watch like The Village, Dead and Breakfast, Cursed, Bram Stokers Dracula and probably the Ghostbusters movies. Maybe even the Scream movies.

That doesn’t take up a whole month though, so I am looking for recommendations!! What is a scary movie that you enjoyed, or like to watch around Halloween?

Before Cell Phones

Can you even remember life before smartphones? What did we do? Our social interaction was probably better, easier to meet people because people were looking up…but what else?

I’ve been sitting here waiting for the windshield on my car to be replaced, it takes 45 minutes to an hours. Right now I think I’m at minute 40. I’ve been playing with my phone the whole time. Texting, looking at Facebook, I called to make a different appointment, and now I am writing this blog post.

The magazines here are very outdated, there is a soap opera on TV that I never watch (the guy who works here…must be his program, haha), and the other girl waiting is on her phone too. It got me thinking…how did we get through this before??

Bronn’s Summer

As dictated to me from his soulful looks:

It started out great, she was taking me for walks and to this class where I got treats for walking on a teeter and going through TUNNEL. Sometimes it was scary because the sky made loud noises, but I liked to go see my new class friends. On the last day we got to run in the forest and it smelled like deer. Boy I was tired that night.

The human she calls Dad was putting a fence around the bone hurrying spot, but that means the little bucket will have more stinky vegetable stuff for me and Luigi to steal before it goes into the box box.

Then all of a sudden she came home from work one day and all the humans were panicky. There was a smoke smell outside. I don’t know what was going on. We laid around cuddling for days. She went to work and came home very quickly. The humans kept pacing. They felt worried.

One day they started putting things into the moving house, but it did not feel like we were going camping. I had to get in the car with my bed, and Luigi went in the truck, and we drove a long way. We stayed at some other Human’s house for a long time. That’s where I met Lily, she was fun to play with, but she just goes and goes. She doesn’t like snuggles with her human as much as I do.

When that was over, I thought we were going home, but then she went somewhere by herself and she sent me with her Mom human and Dad human. It was cool though because Luigi and I went to a lake and we played and played. Lily was there too, and some other dogs, and cousin Milo who kept trying to hump me! I’m secure in my sexuality though so I just kept walking away. Everyone has a weird cousin, I’ve heard.

We had some normal time, but then she started putting all her stuff in to boxes. I though, oh no! Now what? We got into the car again, with me bed, but this time we had an adventure! We stayed in a big house with our own special room and had yummy food brought to the door.

Then we went to stay with Tracy human and the little humans Evan and Justin for a few days. It was okay, but I could smell that cat smell and I couldn’t see them. I’m sure they were behind that door they sometimes went through. I don’t know why they couldn’t hear me when I shouted for them. I’ll never know what was behind that door for sure.

Finally I found out where she was taking me. There’s this new place called home. We have a new bed too. There are these girls who come home and they give me pets when I greet them. A dog can’t complain about that! Plus, I get to go for two long walks a day! So many good smells, and some other dogs who get to do the same thing. I think I’m gonna like it here!

I’m glad I get to do all this cool stuff with my human, even though sometimes I get confused and anxious…it always seems to turn out okay in the end because we’re always together!

Road Tripping with Bronn

My dog is a pretty good traveller. The only thing about travelling with him in the summer time is that I have to go through drive-thrus, stop at rest stops, and use pay-at-the-pump because it is too hot to leave him in the car! We left this morning with a car load of our possessions to head to Lethbridge for our new chapter. We went to get our tires pumped up and the girl accidentally let him out of the car, good thing he got back in quickly.

I had to turn around and go back to Mom and Dad’s because I almost forgot his leash! That wouldn’t have been very good! Then we went through the A&W drive-thru for breakfast which made him super excited about the trip! They made it wrong though, they put ketchup instead of mayo. It was still tasty though!

We drove for an hour then stopped at the 108 rest stop. I like that one because there is a lot of space for him to stretch his legs. Plus I had to pee. Darn coffee!!He greeted some couples who pulled in with their 5th wheel trailers. Then we were on our way.

The air conditioning quit before we got to Kamloops. It was hot so we pulled over and took a little hike. I had four missed calls from the office I left on Friday… I called back and it was just some misplaced paperwork (not mine). Then did some texting updates of our trip and we see on our way!

My old boss called to apologize but also thank me for calling back. We were at the Arby’s drive-thru. Bronn was pretty happy about that too. After lunch we drove for a while, it felt like there was never going to be another rest stop and it was warm in the car. The air still circulates, it’s just not cold air coming in. We finally found one called Craig-something. There was a little gift shop there and I tried to tie Bronn up to go in and get water, but he made a fool of himself with panic. He could see me but he couldn’t get to me. I had to untie him and wait until the store emptied so we could both go in. Going to have to work on that!!

After that we finished our journey to Revelstoke. We got a bit lost and had to try two hotels before getting a less expensive, pet friendly room, but the car was way too hot to keep going. Hopefully tomorrow the air conditioner works better!

We went for a walk and found a pet store so we got some treats and a stuffy. Then ordered Chinese food, and now we’re just chilling. Hopefully we can get a good sleep tonight. There are other dogs in the hotel, and we are right next to the train tracks! We’re safe though!

Fall Into New Beginnings

Autumn is my favourite season. Maybe part of it is because my birthday is at the beginning of it, but I also like the colours. The browns, yellows and oranges. There are also amazing smells, like pumpkin pie, turkey, spices and cranberry too!

The fashion is cute too. The boots, scarves, and layered outfits. A lot of people get cute new hair styles for school, new clothes, and school supplies. It just seems like a time for new beginnings, which is funny because for the trees and animals it’s the end of the season as they prepare for winter. Leaves falling and bears going for a long winter nap.

That’s why I am so excited to be starting over again at this time of the year. It’s pretty perfect for me. It seems like things are falling into place nicely so far, like it was meant to be. I am sure there will be a struggle here and a bump there, but I really feel like I am doing the right thing!

Cheers! To new beginnings!

What If

What if you just woke up early.

Or, you never fell asleep.

What if right now was your dreams,

If you are awake, this is your reality.

What if when you were awake it was your dreams,

And when you are asleep is your reality.

How then, would you know what is real,

How would you know what is fake?

How do you know now?
