My Random Thoughts and Misc Ramblings

Lazy Day

The clarity of my ambition is often outmatched by the tenacity of my laziness. I am feeling really really really lazy today, so thanks to Linda for the excuse to just Write One Line and to FOWC and Sheryl at One Daily Word Prompt for the word prompts (clarity/ambition) that perfectly fit my mood!

But it was those damn marks around ‘proves’ that really did it. She was not some kind of random wacko going on… Continue reading Cassie & Nessie
