Six Sentence Story: Reservation

Linking up again with Six Sentence Stories.  This week's prompt: Reservation.


She searched through the file cabinets of her brain, mentally pulling out memory after memory, then discarding them in a heap, promising to restore them to their proper place later.  

I've never had a humorous mix-up with a reservation?  How can that be? I guess I won't participate in this week's Six Sentence Story link up.  

Then, suddenly, as she embraced her hesitancy, the answer hit her like a heavy thesaurus.  She opened up her laptop and started to type.

    1. Thanks, Ivy. I should make it to this week's party, too--I just have to narrow down which experience to write about. Wind is a constant here in the desert.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …
