Sunny Monday




Welcome to Saturday Centus, the weekly challenge to present a story, poem, or other writing based on an idea provided by Jenny Matlock of Off On My Tangent. This week, we have been given the prompt of "You Are My Sunshine" and must only use 50 words. We can, however, use a picture! The prompt is in bold below.


She dragged herself to the kitchen on a rainy Monday morning. She tossed a bagel into the dishwasher, poured a cup of coffee, and set the cooking level on the TV to high. She inhaled the aroma of her coffee, and said as she stared into the black abyss, “you are my sunshine!”

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my Monday mornings! Please jog over to Jenny Matlock's by clicking the logo below!

Funny, but I feel exactly the same way. I can not function without coffee every morning.

Oh yes...my morning sunshine comes in black, too. No cream, no sugar. High octane preferred! Excellent use of the prompt!

Since we live in Tucson, I really don't know just what rain is, but I have definitely staggered into the kitchen on more than one occasion. I certainly can relate to this!!!!

Talk about waking up in a fog. Reminds me of my neighbor's sudden onset of Alzhiemer's when she put her husbands pants and wallet in the microwave.~Ames

Thank you for you kind words about my SC-post.

Yours is so funny! I just love it. And it reminds me of myself. I'm still in the process of moving. Now I have all of these boxes to unpack and find places for everything. I have done a lot of stupid things during the move.

Take a peek at my cat, Sara's blog post and you will see what it looks like here at home.

Best wishes,
