Plowing Snow #It’s Six-Sentence Story Thursday Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

Last weekend, we must have gotten a mountain of the white stuff. On Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 a.m. to hear my snow removal guy using his power shovel, then his truck outfitted with a plow, to clear snow from my driveway, ramp, and sidewalks. It continued to snow throughout the day on Sunday and into the night. So, my guy came back on Monday, but not quite as early. Since more of the white stuff arrived Monday night, he came back bright and early Tuesday morning to, as they say in England, “have another go.” Winter can be a never-ending cycle during which you feel like you’re forever plowing snow.

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

      1. You’re welcome, and I’ll do my best–having more trouble with all the world/country’s issues this year than I did last year. But the pendulum always swings back, doesn’t it. God bless you hugely ❤ And a very Happy Valentine's Day coming soon!

  1. Agree with those who can’t wait for the snow to melt.
    Its interesting that we look for ‘what is not’ as reassurance that the earth will not always remain a featureless (and inhospitable) white.
    The patches of earth and lawn that push up towards the sun grow and we take heart that winter will, somehow, end.

  2. Supposedly the snow is on its way here and will become a blanket on top of the layer of ice caused by the freezing rain that has fallen all day. Hoping that we don’t experience a power outage due to limbs breaking from trees and falling on power lines. I love the beauty of the snow, but not so much the problems that often come because of it.
    Great SSS.

    1. Hi, Lisa, I would love for spring to come early, but, as I understand it, the groundhog saw his shadow a couple of weeks ago. So, it looks like we may get a few more weeks of winter. Stay warm and safe, and thank you for reading and commenting.
