It would seem my muse woke up this morning. So not only did I take the liberty of posting a thrice-run story, I’m double dipping as well. πŸ˜‰

They sat at the kitchen table, a bag of pretzels between them. Light from the old-fashioned lamps cast a warm glow in the room. Shelly savored the salt on her tongue, then sipped her Cabernet.

β€œIt’s so romantic, isn’t it?” She moved her book closer to the light. β€œDontcha love it?”

Jon turned the page of his magazine. β€œNot the best reading light.”

β€œMust you be so negative? Remember, β€˜It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness.’”

β€œThank you, Eleanor Roosevelt.” He frowned. β€œI’ll stop cursing the darkness when the power’s restored and the TV comes back on.”


Adding more to my ETSY SHOP every day!

Getting ready for the Holidays. They’ll be here before you know it!

    • Dear D,

      I admit to frothing at the mouth when the power’s down and I can’t access the internet on my computer. πŸ˜‰ But my husband definitely takes it to a higher level of angst. Thank you.
