Quiet Time

Leisurely Writing

I cannot dream up new worlds unless I set aside the time for it. So tonight this is my my respite. May the tea and words flow!


Another Misadventure

Just added another chapter in the Misadventures of Anna San…

I stopped to try on rings at Kohls after returning an Amazon package. I was looking for a sterling silver open heart ring like on the ads on FB but a slim gold band caught my attention.

“Oooh” I breathed and immediately slipped it on. It was just my size! I oohed and ahhed at how pretty it was and looked at the sale pricing chart. Then I tried to take it off.

*cough* Yeah, it was “just” my size meaning the zip ties and card made it too snug and it wouldn’t budge! 😢After struggling for an additional 5-10 minutes to remove the ring from my swelling finger, I took it as a sign that this was ‘the one’ and sheepishly stood in the checkout line.

“This may be a silly reason to purchase something,” I told the cashier, “but it’s kind of stuck on me.”

“I have never seen that happen before!” She gasped. She was both amused and concerned for my poor finger. After scanning the card on my hand, She called another worker over and they fussed over the ring card, trying to snip the zip tie without injuring my hand. No bueno. 😫

However once I thought I felt it wiggle, one of them pulled out hand sanitizer and the ring slipped off easily!

They truly were my heroes today!

“The One” Ring XD

It’s been a rough week, but God is faithful. Thank you Lord!

Thanks for reading!


Why Not?

This image was in my Pinterest feed this morning and it really resonated with me. So I picked up my notebook and drove to Starbucks.

I snagged a coffee and a scone and scored a table in remote corner. I nibbled on my pastry as I watched the snow then I opened the notebook and stared at the blank page. What character should I write about today?

I went through the list. No, no, no… Everyone has been written about ad nauseum lately.

I reached for my phone to get photographic evidence of this attempt at playing author. No luck. I left it at home.

I contemplated the vast page again. I just needed a hook to start writing. After some musing I settled on writing simple back story which quickly springboarded into fleshing out a pivotal scene. I was so engrossed that two hours passed by quickly!

I know this was a staycation novelty but I can’t wait for an opportunity to do it again. 🙂
