There's coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the decanters on the counter. On the counter there's a variety of freshly baked jelly and cream filled doughnuts apple fritters and I tripled the order of maple bars because they were so popular. Ice cold milk...whole lowfat skim and soy....is in the fridge beneath.
I set up a time out room for anyone who hogs all the maple bars....there's only soda crackers and tap water in there... and a chalkboard where you can write 100 times I will not hog all the maple bars....lol

CRYSTAL

Autumn leaves drifted across the crushed gravel as I backed my yellow Ford Fiesta out of the driveway and circled around the fenced pasture in front of my uncle's farm. It was mid October and we lived on the eastern outskirts of Gridley-A small town about sixty miles north of Sacramento.
I had grown to love my uncle over that short time, though I rarely let him know it. I really appreciated all he had done for me. I needed new friends, a new place to live, and yes-a new family. He gave me all of those things along with a way for me to talk with my dearly departed grandpa from time to time.
Having cousins was definitely new, especially a certain little girl who thought of me as her big sister. Alicia had no problem digging through my purse or playing with my makeup. Don't get me wrong, she's an adorable little girl. Her hugs and kisses got me through many tear storms as she also nestled her way into my heart.
Uncle Joe helped me through the worst of my grief, training me to use my Kachina powers, so I could reach out to Grandpa's spirit on my own. It was hard, knowing his spirit was so close, but never being able to feel his loving arms wrap around me. I could talk to him for short intervals, which grew longer as I was able to channel more energy into the amulet that held his essence. He and my uncle were ghost warriors. Honor bound to protect the Kachina, but they were family too. I was only half Kachina.
Raymond was a different story. He was shy and didn't bother me while I worked my way through the tears. Lately though, he'd taken to pulling pranks. The little stinker put a dead rat in my bed.
If it hadn't been for his mother I might have strangled the little monster. He hid behind her skirts for protection as the energy around my hands pulsed with bright blue light. It shocked me too. I hadn't meant to draw energy and I ran to my uncle afterward, frightened of what I might have done if I'd actually caught my cousin.
Uncle Joe settled me down and reminded me of the meditation games I played with grandpa. I thought they were just rituals he taken from his heritage. Grandpa had been grooming me for power all along. He just failed to mention it to me.
I learned to control my natural instinct to draw energy from the neighboring dimension when I got stressed and poor little Raymond had to wash all my bedding and clean my room for me for a month. Ha...ha...ha...rotten little brat.
I drove along the country road and came to a stop at highway 99, pausing as the pull of the nearby mountains grew stronger. Uncle Joe warned me away from The Buttes. He said they were patrolled by Skinwalkers and that I should keep my distance. A flash of the snake-walker who'd kidnapped me sent a shiver up my spine and I had to calm myself a moment to extinguish the deep blue light I felt rising to the surface.
I looked down at the cheerleader's outfit I wore. The skin on my right leg matched the blue of my mini skirt. The left leg stood out against the diagonal white section with pinstripes and the team mascot and the word BULLDOGS in gold across my thigh. My blouse had blue borders framing a white sash with the letters GHS in gold across my chest.
I calmed myself by focusing my thoughts on school. It was Friday-rally day and Tony Richards the smokin' hot varsity quarterback had just broken up with Denise Miller-the snooty best friend of the captain of our squad. Denise had tried to block my admittance and was pissed when her friend chose me over her objections. Ordinarily a cheerleader had to try out in April of the previous year, but a spot opened up and I had tons of experience back in El Dorado Hills. None of the other candidates could keep up with the trendy cheers I already knew by heart.
I turned right onto 99 and headed for school.
First period was Trig and I zipped through it, hardly noticing anyone as I watched the clock waiting for my next class US History. At the sound of the bell, I rushed to the bathroom to check my hair and makeup before I strutted into class. The guys in the front went quiet as I entered. I had to hide the smile inside me. I wouldn't want to encourage the wrong guy. Still their reaction told me all I needed about how I looked. Tony came in late and sat right behind me.
I trembled as he tapped me on the shoulder.
"Hey, can I copy your homework? The coach had us stay late for practice last night and I didn't get my History assignment done."
I handed back my paper without a word, giving him the full force of my smile.
He returned the gesture as his eyes lowered to my legs and traveled upward. "You must be new. I don't remember you from last year."
I blushed, praying my skin turned pink instead of blue. "I just moved here."
"Do you have any plans after the game tonight?"
I couldn't believe my ears. Was he really asking me out? I couldn't form the words so I shook my head indicating I was free for the evening.
"Do you like pizza?"
I nodded with another smile.
"Cool, it's a date then. You want to meet me in front of the locker rooms after the game?"
I swallowed twice before I found my voice. "I brought my car today."
"No prob's. You know where the Round Table is?"
I nodded again. It was hard to miss it. The sign was right along the highway on my way to school.
"Cool. I'll meet you-"
His voice broke off and I turned in my seat to face forward as Mr. Jarnigan called the class to order. I felt like I was floating above my seat with a permanent smile plastered across my face. Tony had to nudge me again when the teacher asked us to pass our homework forward. Tony's was on top and I noticed a small piece of paper under his thumb when he passed the homework forward. He'd torn the corner off of his assignment sheet and written-txt me 555-6161-on it.
I slipped the paper into my purse because Mr. Jarnigan was a stickler about no phones during class time. I didn't want to lose it for the day.
My science class was across the hall with Mrs. Fienrich. She, too, had a thing about cell phones, so I waited until lunchtime to text Tony. Besides I didn't want to seem too anxious. Guys are silly sometimes about feeling trapped. It's stupid really-they think they own every girl they've ever been with, but one little hint about that girl getting serious and they run like scared rabbits. I wasn't interested in serious right now anyway. I just wanted to have some fun. Not to mention making Denise as jealous as hail. I wasn't going to play nice while my best friend or even my worst enemy walked off with my guy.

We texted back and forth all day, flirting and laughing at our inside jokes. It was a good day and the first time I hadn't thought of either Grandpa or being kidnapped since it all happened.
After school I sent a text to Uncle Joe that I was meeting some friends for pizza after the game and not to worry if I came home late.
I practiced my moves with the rest of the varsity squad, going through the entire routine while the freshmen cheerleaders took the field for the JV game. In addition to our sideline cheers the coach had choreographed a gymnastic dance routine for the halftime show. I had to land a double somersault dismount from the top of the pyramid while four other girls cart-wheeled outward toward the four corners of the mats.
Tony walked up as we were finishing our practice. "Hello beautiful. You girls put on a great show. I wouldn't mind staying to see it, but then you all wouldn't have much to cheer about if the star quarterback got benched."
"You don't have any problem with confidence, do you?"
"You're daam straight I don't. The coach drills it into my head every practice. You have to believe in yourself. If you throw a bad pass or get sacked, you just pick yourself up and try again. Let the scoreboard keep count."
I walked with him part way to the locker room, stopping a few paces past the girls' entrance.
Tony turned back. "I'll see you at Round Table's after the game."
I smiled and waved as he disappeared beyond the double doors. Feeling warm and fuzzy all over, I turned to find Denise right up in my face.
"He's not the guy he pretends to be. I'm warning you, don't go out with him. He's bad news."
"Yeah, yeah, he told me you hadn't gotten over him. Look, I kept my distance while you two were together. He's fair game now."
Denise's face paled, I could feel the coldness inside her. "I broke up with him, you dumb bich. Not the other way around. Something happened. He-"
"Yeah whatever, I'm a bich. You don't want him, but you don't want anyone else to have him either. You need to have nice long cry and get over yourself."
"Fine, but don't say I didn't warn you."
"Fine!"
I couldn't believe that girl. Tony was nothing, but nice to me. Maybe he tried to get with her. All guys do. You just have to shut them down, early on. She must have let him go too far. Besides it was only a first date and I had my Kachina powers to fall back on if things got out of hand.
Tony was awesome. Nobody could lay a hand on him. The loyal home crowd roared with applause, following our cues for more noise when the visitor's offence took the field. The score at halftime was twenty-one to three. Our team had three touchdowns to the other team's lone field goal.
We dragged the mats out onto the field in record time and everything went great right up to the finale. The pyramid of girls was perfect as I climbed to the top and spread my arms. I prepared myself for the double somersault dismount, taking a deep breath before I leapt into the air. That's when I felt the extra push. Thrown off balance, I knew my landing wouldn't be good. I pulled out of the spin after the first somersault, letting my momentum carry me another half turn. I drew energy from within and felt the warmth of it flood into my wrists as I landed in a handstand and pushed off again, flipping to my feet at the edge of the mats with both arms held high.
I bowed as the crowd cheers. At least the ones still in the stands-Moms and dads of the cheerleaders and a few others who gone to concession stands early and were waiting for the second half to start.
Turning my back to the crowd, I glared at Denise as she dismounted from the top tear.
There was no time to do anything else, besides the cardinal rule of cheerleading was to never let the crowd see anything except a smile.
Our coach ran up to me after the field was cleared, checking my wrists. "Are you alright? This wrist looks a little blue. You didn't injure it did you."
"I'm fine."
"That was a spectacular save." She pulled my chin up to face her eye to eye. "Or did you plan that?"
I felt tears welling in my eyes and I gave my head a subtle shake.
"Of course you didn't. What happened up there?"
My gaze shot to Denise, but I lowered it to the ground before the coach could guess what had happened.
I got nervous with the crowd and put too much into my jump. I didn't want to fall on my ass in front of everyone, so I pulled out early, hoping to save the dismount."
"You shouldn't have pulled out of it at all. You should have landed in a ball and rolled to a stop to bleed off the momentum. You could have broken your wrists or worse. I want you to sit out until the medic can take a look at you."
I was forced to watch the second half of the game from the front bench. Tony lofted the ball for a fourth touchdown in the third quarter, and then had him handing the ball off to run out the clock in the fourth. The Cougars scored another field goal in the third and a touchdown to close out the seconds of the game. Too little, too late to make a difference.
The medic didn't check my wrist until after the guys headed to the locker rooms. The light energy that the cheerleader's coach saw had dissipated shortly after the incident so there was nothing to see. The medic took his time, testing the strength and flexibility before he cleared me to leave. I rushed across the empty football field to my car, praying I'd get there before Tony did. I didn't want him to think I stood him up.
I saw Tony standing by my car as I entered the center lot where I'd parked.
He met me at the low cable fence. "I heard you made an awesome move at half-time. Did you hurt your wrists?"
I felt my face flush with warmth as he took my hand helping me over the wire.
Sweet and hot. No wonder Denise had trouble getting over him.
I followed his Dodge 4x4 down Spruce Street and turned left onto highway 99. The pizza place was less than a mile down the road. I parked next to Tony. My car looked like a toy next to his truck as he climbed down and looped his arm to escort me inside.
Several of his football buddies were gathered around a large round table, but Tony passed them by, securing a booth in the back corner.
He picked up the paper menu and asked, "You know what you want?"
I started to rise.
"No, no you're my guest. I'll get it."
"I'd like a garlic chicken pizza and a diet cola."
"No problem, be back in a minute."
He returned, carrying two glasses and a receipt for the pizza. It was a little weird after he sat down. Neither of us said anything. I'd had no problem texting him all day, but now that we were face to face I couldn't think of anything to say.
He finally broke the silence. "I heard you and Denise had words after I talked to you at practice."
Anger had seethed just below the surface since the incident at halftime. It broke like floodwaters over a dam at the mention of her name. "I think she's still hung up on you. I nearly broke my neck when she pushed me off the pyramid."
"I'm sorry. I'll go talk to her about it tomorrow. Don't worry about it."
I glanced under the table at the deep blue glow around my legs. Folding my azure hands in my lap, I took a deep breath and let it out slowly calming the energy I called in anger. The color faded, leaving normal skin tone in its wake. I reached for my soda and took several drinks. My glass was empty by the time they called Tony's name for the pizza. He hopped up and snagged the pizza from the counter and slapped it down on the table. Then he grabbed our glasses and went to refill them.
I got up, and met him on the way back.
"I need to use the ladies room. I'll be right back."
The drink had gone right through me and I felt like my make-up needed a few touches as well. Five minutes later I returned to the booth and sat down. Tony was so sweet he hadn't touched a bite.
"You didn't have to wait for me. Dig in."
He smiled as he ripped a piece from the pan and shoved it in his mouth. Everything inside me wanted to follow suit, but I held back sliding a small slice onto my plate and nibbling the end. I took a sip of my soda and it tasted a little flat like they were running out of CO2. At least it was wet. Tony had eaten three slices before I finished my first. I yawned, feeling super tired all of sudden. Everything around me seemed to fade into one gigantic blur. I laid my head on the table feeling almost like I had when the snake-walker had dosed me with either. Then everything went dark.

Hi LOB
Ditto to your comments about Leo.
Yes I am back at work today, but this week is a short one for us, we all have Friday off.
How are you feeling ? I do hope that things are getting better for you, each day coming closer to being totally weaned off the meds that give nasty side effects.
I was sad to see that you are still not able to read books, but am so glad that you can read here and post too.
Take care ♥

Slow going here redandwhite. I am better though and so that is progress however slow it may be. I'll get there. Thanks for asking. Today I'll try reading again. I have a couple of new books that I'm really looking forward to get started on. One is a Stephanie Bond book.

How nice that you have 4 day work week this week. Do you have special weekend plans?

Is everyone sleeping ??

Wishing a good start of the week. Every tree, and every bush are stretching to life. Flowers are blossoming here, in a few weeks it will be a colorful explosion. The Peach, Pear, and Plum trees put on their timid pink and white flower. They'll look like colored candies from afar.

I had scrambled eggs at breakfast and I remembered a story I wrote while eating them a little time ago. I'll reproduce it here in a post, if you don't mind, just to share what could happen in a feverish mind when eating scrambled eggs...

I just love the way you use words, always a pleasure to read your posts, I am really looking forward to the blossom appearing.

Your breakfast sounds good, mine was just coffee and a pc !
Love it when you share... waiting impatiently...

Hi, redandwhite. Good morning.

I'm trying to find where the Ammy bot complains, in addition to the obvious ones, that is.

Tender Moments

He liked those moments of infinite sweetness, when time seemed suspended. They meant life to him. Cleaning was the hard part, though. Amy loved a pristine house.

***

"MISSING FOR NINE DAYS"

The words took the full width of the newspaper. He nodded to the boy.
"Oh, that's for Johnny, sir. He went missing. No one has seen anything...this is a peaceful county."
"Must be peaceful for Johnny now, too."
The boy looked puzzled; he didn't get the pun.
"Listen. Any motels around?"
"No, sir. We don't want trouble with people coming and goin'. This is a..."
"Peaceful county. Got it."
"That's $32, sir."

***

He hated driving in dreadful weather and, that night, the weather was crazy. He didn't know the roads either which added to his frustration.
"Jeez!" Water wet his shoulder as a corrosion crack on the roof had just lost its battle against the elements. He needed to change cars, not just his life.
He saw the rusty mailbox in a lucky blink. He hadn't seen any sign of life for miles and he was tired, too. He stopped when he reached the house. The flat wooden cottage had a side barn and it was engulfed in darkness. The door opened, a tall silhouette filling the entire space of its frame.
"Howdy! I think I'm lost. And the weather isn't helping..."
The tall man didn't react. A long awkward moment, time dangling like that in a bad voting system. He stepped forward.
"I could spend the night...maybe in the barn?" He pointed to the car. "Roof's leaking..."
He couldn't see the man's face. The silhouette advanced and he saw the man was smiling. Good, smiling is always good.
"Sure...that's nothing," the man said, waving to the pitch-dark and rainy sky. "But it will get worse. Get the car in the barn."

***

The living room was neat, with lots of little details only a lovely wife could care for. "So...here for business?" The man asked while they shared a beer.
"Yeah. You married, sir?"
The man looked around and smiled. "Indeed. You can tell, huh? She's visiting her sister, in San Francisco." Both men smiled.
"What kind of business?" the man asked.
"I...represent people. I took a detour. I want to reach Boise tomorrow. There might be some business there."
"Have a meeting?"
"No. Just exploring."
"I see..." The man paused. "Well, you need to get up early then. You can't drive fast on these roads."
"Sure, though the scenery is fantastic."
"Mountains always are. By Halloween, they are a joy of colors. Amy loves this season."
"Your wife..." It wasn't a question, and the man just nodded.
"Let me have you try a specialty of the house," the man stood up and went to the kitchen. He came back with two glasses.
"Here, taste this. A pure mountain specialty." It was very strong, but delicious.

***

The pain in his mouth was excruciating. And what was that smell? Someone was cooking. He couldn't move. Tied up and hung like a pig, his entire body was spinning. Semi-conscious, he still felt the blade violating his neck. Right below his ear, then pulled out with force, cutting into one of his carotid arteries.

***

The county sheriff knocked on the door. It was pouring rain again.
"Hi, Doug."
"Sheriff."
"I know I'm wasting my time but have you seen a tourist driving around here these days?"
"A tourist? You gotta be kidding."
"Yeah..."
"Hey, before you go, I have tongue and kidney pudding. Killed a pig this week."
"Nahh, thanks but I'll pass. Gotta go. And...so sorry for the loss of your wife, Doug. Amy was a fine lady."
"Sure. Anytime, Sheriff."

***

He loved those moments of infinite sweetness when hearts slowly stop and lives fade, trembling under his hand like a candle's flame in an evening breeze. Cleaning was the hard part, though. Amy loved a pristine house.

Good morning everyone. A couple of Freebies to start the day . . . . .

The Lost Ark - Fantasy

In a lonely bar in eastern Turkey, ex-National Geographic photojournalist Sam Ward is hired to find an eccentric professor who disappeared high atop Mount Ararat, fabled resting spot of Noah's Ark.

Accompanied by the professor's beautiful daughter, archaeologist Faye Roberts, Sam soon stumbles upon a secret stronghold-a base of operation for unleashing hell of earth.

Now running for their lives, Sam and company are about to come face-to-face with the greatest archaeological discovery of all time....
.

Arthur: A Fantasy Novel (Grail Quest Trilogy #1) - Fantasy

Hidden deep within the ancient, mist-covered hills of Glastonbury, England is a secret that could forever change the world. A secret that could help usher in a new age of enlightenment for all mankind.

Or so the legend goes....

Plagued by months of persistent dreams of King Arthur, Merlin and the Holy Grail, mystery novelist James Dupree finally sets out to England to understand the meaning behind his nightly visions. Upon arriving in Glastonbury, a locale deeply connected to stories of Camelot, Avalon and the Knights of the Round Table, James quickly discovers that not all is as it seems in this quaint little town. There's a raven-haired girl dying of a rare lung disease, knights with swords, and perhaps strangest of all is the man who emerges from the forest...a man who just might be the greatest king Britain has ever seen.

Something is happening in Glastonbury, something mysterious and powerful and not-of-this world, and somehow James Dupree is in the thick of it. Mankind is ready for the next great spiritual shift. But to do that, one man, one simple writer, must journey deep into the heart of a mystical land in search of a legendary relic.

But there are others who seek the treasure...dark forces who will stop at nothing to keep it for themselves, and end Dupree's quest for good.

At once inspiring and pulse-pounding, ARTHUR is for anyone who dares to dream-and dares to slay dragons.

Once again I forgot to check the last page to see if I was on the right days thread! This is pasted from the last thread

@NC Kathy - back from my self-imposed exile - sort of ... I was just having a quick sticky beak to see what has been happening before cooking dinner, and saw your ETA - WoW! I can't imagine trying to write a letter like that! I like the card you found - that is lovely. I am sure you will find exactly the right words to say.

A big happy cheery hello to everyone. I hope you are all well. Sorry, I don't have time to catch up on all the posts at the moment

Leo - I was pleased to see that you have this up on google docs so that I can read it when I get a chance. Being newish to the thread I missed the earlier installments.

Wish I had a little more time in my day *sigh* seems like it is dark before I have done half of want I want to accomplish. I bought your book a while ago but still haven't gotten to it yet. I did manage to finish last months book club read though :) I have reached a new milestone I wanted to share. #22 in my sub genre. Can hardly believe it.

I decided not to dwell on that.

Good morning, r&w:)

I have changed, but it is not showing yet I guess:)

ETA It used to be that a name change showed immediately for the owner and started showing at intervals after about 12 hours, then permanent from about 24 hours, but now it is a lot less predictable. I changed it this morning CET so it should show pretty soon.
