So Here's the Plan

Sort Of....

I spent yesterday writing...working on two children's Halloween stories to be read at the farm market/pumpkin picking/corn maze place. It ended up taking me longer than expected but I was having such a good time, I forgot about nearly everything else.

I did have a doctor's appointment in the early afternoon which took up some more time, so somehow the day just slipped by.

So the deal is that, if all goes as planned, I will don my witch's costume for a weekend or two or more and head over to the market to become the witch storyteller for the little kids.

One story has a fireman as a main character since the market is celebrating local firefighters during the season. The other story focuses on a black cat named Reggie...gee, seems to me I have a black cat named Reggie...who is looking for some meaning in his life. Both stories are written in poetry form, something the kids seems to enjoy.

I have written children's sermons for church so I have some experience at such "entertaining." It's always fun if the stories go over well. And I am ever hopeful.

Haven't done much today except start on some much needed house cleaning. The never ending project has a long way to go, but I figure a little at a time can go a long way.

The Boys? Just kind of hanging out, mostly in the stalls. It's a little warmer again and I'm thinking perhaps the flies are active again. If I get up the ambition...something I seem to have in short supply as far as the horses go right now....I'll go out in the evening for some kind of work with them.

So, for now, that's it. Nothing more at the moment.


  1. I'd love to hear your stories and I'm sure the children will be captivated. This is such a fun time of year for children.
    As for the horses, they'll be there later too if you feel like working with them.
    Have a great time being a scary witch.

    That must be exciting - to do your own stories for the children! Have a wonderful time!

    Our flies are very bad right now - getting in their last bites, I guess, before frost.

  3. Well, we need to hear your stories! I was thinking about writing a children's series....one of those things to put on the bucket list:-)

  4. Wonderfull idea.
    Would you mind to send me the stories, I would love to read them to Olly for Halloween.

    I can receive emails on my gmail account, I cannot send any .. gmail keeps crashing. I really enjoy the horoscope email.
