Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Dana, Beth, and Anna
for hosting this meeting place each day in March
and for nurturing our writing lives.
I was in search of an idea, when along came Elisabeth of the dirigible plum's six word memoirs about slicing. I didn't stay true to the form since some of my lines overlap, but this is a poem of six word lines about what's swirling around in my head right now.
YEAR TWO OF RETIREMENT, STILL SCRAMBLING!
I warned husband. Tuesday is mine!
Blocked it out on sub calendar.
Then a friend needed immediate attention.
Missed email for meeting with neighbor
regarding new mailboxes, rescheduled for tomorrow.
Gorgeous day for walk with Karen.
Book, Brownies, and Beyond meets today.
We're moving March Book Madness brackets
to more visible spot in hallway.
Women's organization meets tonight, need time
to work on agenda and plans
for upcoming special event in April.
Called Debora to schedule Courtney's shower.
Yikes! If I slice today, now
is the time. What happened to
Tuesday, my day? Life came along!
