This old barrel was left behind by the people who had this house before us, and one day, after walking through town and seeing shops and restaurants fill … Continue reading A Barrel of Fun #WeeklySmile

Dandelion Fun #WeeklySmile

  Me and my dad went outside on the lawn Sunday, which is covered in dandelions right now. There was a heavy breeze, so I plucked a dandelion that had turned into a white puff of parachute seeds and blew on it. The breeze pushed the seeds towards my dad, and he tried to dodge them as … Continue reading Dandelion Fun #WeeklySmile

It’s Finally Warm! Yes, I’m Excited. #WeeklySmile

Spring has been a long time coming here, in northern New England. Weeks of cold and rain, and not a leaf bud in sight. But since May arrived, it's gotten mildly warmer, enough for the flowers to bloom, though not as full as they have been previous years. I heard on the news that this spring … Continue reading It’s Finally Warm! Yes, I’m Excited. #WeeklySmile

#BP #Friendship: Madnes and Oz

Madnes Solver, E E Rawls, wonderland, fantasy author, madness solver

How long have they known each other, and how close are they? Madnes and Oz have known each other since they were children. They are cousins, and they used to be very close, two peas in a pod, though they differ in personality. Sadly, things didn’t stay that way. A change overcame Oz, an icy cold, and he began hating the world and everything he once loved.

And soon Oz moved away with his parents, and Madnes couldn’t bring himself to say goodbye or try and mend the broken bond between them.
