This is a prompting Blog

My intent here is to write a poem from the prompt I give to you , the reader, in hopes that it will inspire something and get others to write with me.

Yesterday was my Birthday....

You all know how it is, never enough time to do what you really want to do, that has been my whole week... no seriously...check it out...

Monday this is what we showed up to do..a whole lot of digging...

And while that was happening there was also a lot of blocks... Five hours and 98 fifty-five lbs blocks later...there was still a lot to go, but we have to rest sometime so we went home for the day ...

Tuesday we got this far...another five hour, 114 blocks day... dog tired...

This is where we went home again... Wednesday we finished the wall... another two hours...
And this is what it looks like all together...
See where the dirty blocks start ?
From there back to the second chain link fence is what we did in 11 1/2 hours...

Then, ummm did I mention yesterday was my birthday and my mom came to see our yard for my birthday ?? Well it has been almost a year since she has come up, so it was VERY special !! She completely surprised me with not just one, but two cakes !!

(Accepting or not, Mom will always call me that!!)

Not only that , but we had a few friends come by right after we got home, so for the rest of the day I looked like this...

This is me after work...and we had company till dark-thirty (8pm my time )

All of this to explain to all you who read our blog and wait for us to read yours... We barely had time to keep up with life so we apologize for our shortage on  reading you, we will try to catch up this week end.
Till then we hope you will still read the rest of the month challenges on JL Dodge writes... it is almost done.

  8. Sorry I missed your birthday. I hope you had a great day and have another years worth of great days too.
    The wall looks terrific. 12 hours of work? It would take me a year.
    And that's just the planning!
