Small Stones – January 1-3 – Catching up!

Writing Our Way Home is sponsoring a mindfulness challenge for January.

The instructions:

1. Notice something properly every day during January.
2. Write it down.

I’m catching up on days 1 through 3…


January 1

As branch tips bend, ornaments tangle in limbs below, no longer swinging freely.


January 2

Office cleaned for the new year, file drawers close smoothly again.


January 3

Anne flaps to the top of the coop and walks the balance beam.

      • Funny, they look just like chickens to me! πŸ™‚ Seriously, though, while the observations don’t follow the 5-7-5 syllable haiku form, they follow the spirit, which is what I think Leslie is saying. Also, like Anne, my Harriet the Lab mix is the quiet ringleader — quiet except when it’s dinner or treat or “go outside” time, when she turns into a vociferous yelper while Hamlet just hangs back, shrugs his doggie shoulders and lets her do the talking.


        • We thought Anne might get stuck at the bottom of the pecking order because she was so calm and quiet when we first got her. Now the other two go at each other and Anne just stays out of the way, so we are wondering if she is at the TOP of the pecking order! πŸ™‚
