The Shadows

Recipe (Sort Of?) – Nature’s Cereal

Hello My Food Darlings!              This recipe is going to be short and sweet!  Last month, I decided to try the “Nature’s Cereal” that has become popular this year.  I first saw an article posted where Lizzo shared her own take on the recipe alongside the originator’s recipe (TikTok’s @natures_food).                I have been eating this for the past…

Ollie the Pet Dragon

“Come here!!”  “Oliver, I said, ‘Come here!!’  No, no, no!! Don’t do that!!”  Ugh, I knew I should have signed up for dragon training class.  “What are you doing?!”  I run inside to grab the training book only to come back and see Ollie lying on his back, legs in the air, with his head covered in mud and a rose…

Thunder

Flash. BOOM!  I run and hide under the bed.  Body shaking, eyes darting back and forth.  What was that?  I scoot myself back further under the bed, against the wall, next to some crumpled up tissues.  Flash. BOOM!!  That one was bigger!  What is going on?  I squeeze my eyes shut so tight that I begin to see spots.  I wish I had my favorite blanket…

A Star Falls

            It was unusually windy that night.  As I gazed out the window and the leaning trees and tumbling leaves on the ground, I noticed a bright light off in the distance. As I focused on the light I realized that it was coming from slightly above our house, in the sky.  I initially thought that it must be…

Hungry Mouse

Something smells good.  I can’t quite put my finger on it but boy does it make my mouth water.  As I sit atop this tea cup, I peak through the crack of the cupboard next to the hinge of the door to see someone stirring an enormous pot.  An enormous pot of something.  That must be the something that…

Justice League (Original) Review

            Hello Everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Just a quick disclaimer that I am in no way a movie expert, comic expert, DC or Marvel expert.  I just like movies and figured this would be a fun thing to write about from time to time. And although this movie came out in 2017, I probably don’t need…

Easing In

Hello Darlings,             Since this adventure, as corny as it may be to call it that, with writing has just started, bear with me as I get myself organized.  In my first post I had mentioned that I had written my first response to a writing prompt. The book in particular that I am using is “A Year…
