Tuesday Tales are Hardy

Image
Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! It's time for Tuesday Tales.






A group of writers gather together and give our interpretation of a specific word prompt each week. This week we share the prompt "hardy".  You never know what you might encounter when you get inside our minds. This will be an excerpt from my brand new yet-to-be-named WIP.

Enjoy!~



I bought out every fruit tree the local nursery had in stock. I’m sure I made the owners day with the amount of money I spent. Today, money was no object standing in the way of what I wanted to do. Conner and any available work staff helped me load them all into my dad’s truck and trailer.
“Are we going very far?” Eyeing the full load, he appeared to gauge the success rate of getting everything to the site.
“We aren’t going far at all. I’ll drive slowly with the hazard blinkers on. Don’t you worry about me.”
“I’ve never doubted your determination. It’s those trees who have to survive your lead foot.” Smiling, Conner raised an eyebrow, jerked his he…

Tuesday Tales and Lightning Strikes

Ahoy Fellow Fathomers! It's time for Tuesday Tales.




A group of writers gather together and give our interpretation of a specific prompt each week. Most of the time we write to a certain word. Once per month we write to a picture prompt, and limit our entries to 300 words. I chose lightning. You never know what you might encounter when you get inside our minds. This will be an excerpt from my new yet-to-be-named WIP.











“I’m not sure when I can make it through a storm without wanting to throw up.” Rubbing my clammy palms down my shorts, I tried unsuccessfully to rid my body of the horrible waves of rocking sensations.
“I promise you won’t feel that way forever.” Connor’s voice took on that deep reassuring tone when he truly wanted to get a point across.
All I wanted to do was hold my son- my baby sleeping soundly in his crib- completely unaware of his mother’s impending meltdown. “How can I raise him to be self-assured and confident if I’m a ball of nerves all the time?”

“I remember your favorite flower.” Connor’s words floated through the air as he bent forward, plucking a tall proud Indian Paint Brush from the ground.

When I was a child, I imagined Native Americans actually using these flowers to paint. Those lush red petals spreading some naturally made paint across buffalo hides and peace pipes. As a knowledged adult, I’m sure they couldn’t have used those flowers as a brush, although it’s magic to believe they did.

Connor used to pick these for me every late spring. Even at an early age, he was learning how to be simply romantic, the best kind of gesture came from his heart, not his wallet. I appreciated h…

The decision to eat more went round and round in my brain, while the scrambled eggs cooled to room temperature. Soon, it would be even less appetizing, so, I needed to decide fast. The baby kicked just in time, giving me the cue to make a happy plate. I’d give it my best effort, taking another challenging swallow. My mind reversed to a mealtime far far away in our cozy country kitchen. Garrett’s voice softly drifted into my mind. “This looks good, I’ll fix you some.” Surveying the pans on the stove, I could still see the game plan brewing on his face for p…
