Smelling Sweet – Part Six

Posted on 29. Apr, 2010 by in April

It turns out spending the fall researching couches was not at all exciting. I had homework and cross country and chorale to worry about. Not to mention college applications. So comparing prices and fabrics and coordinating pillows did not particularly thrill me. Grace, however, got a big kick out of it, as did my mom. […]

Smelling Sweet – Part Five

Posted on 28. Apr, 2010 by in April

“What in the world just happened in there, Grace?” I was desperate for her to make sense of it all for me. “What is Gregory’s family business, Claire?” she asked, looking over her glasses at me, even though she knew the answer full well. “Morrow Masonry. So?” I huffed. And then I got it. “Oh.” […]

Smelling Sweet – Part Four

Posted on 26. Apr, 2010 by in April

Benches. That’s how this whole ridiculous back-and-forth business got started. Lunch benches. When it’s cold out during the school year, we all sit inside at lunch, at the green and gold tables that stretch half the length of the cafeteria. It’s loud and it’s fun and pretty much just like every other high school lunch […]

Smelling Sweet – Part Three

Posted on 25. Apr, 2010 by in April

The rest of my junior year seemed to fly by after that. Grace introduced me to everyone, which in Mariposa doesn’t take real long. There was Laurel and Kaitlyn, Sarah and Jessie, Anne and Will, Cole and Mason. And then of course, there was Gregory Edward Morrow. I actually liked Gregory at first, I guess. […]

Smelling Sweet – Part Two

Posted on 23. Apr, 2010 by in April

Moving to Mariposa in the middle of my junior year was hardly what I considered ideal. But Daddy’s work called and he had to answer. He actually started working out here in earnest at the end of my freshman year at John Tyler High School. He flew home every other weekend, but it was just […]

Smelling Sweet – Part One

I’m starting a short story tonight folks! This will be quite a challenge for me, but I need it. I will be writing it in several parts, and if I write something different in between the sections, don’t worry. I’ll get back around to it. Smelling Sweet – Part One What folks around here don’t […]

New Toy

Posted on 21. Apr, 2010 by in April

I am pretty sure that the whole reason Jay started his web development firm is so that he could justify having all the latest and greatest tech toys. Since JLOOP is developing for the iPad, they had to have one, right? And lucky for me, Jay brought it home tonight so I could create This […]

Flimsy Promises

Posted on 20. Apr, 2010 by in April

Mist floats, stealing Spring’s soft scent, Reminding me that Winter is not far gone. Summer is still just a promise, And today it seems a flimsy one at that.

Sunday School

Posted on 19. Apr, 2010 by in April

After church on Sunday, Micah sat at the kitchen table. The rest of us rushed in and out, each busy with a different task. Jay was grilling sandwiches, Jacob was on the phone with a friend, Lucas was running through with his bike helmet and I was gathering gardening tools. And as we swirled all […]

Seeing Red

Posted on 18. Apr, 2010 by in April

Yesterday I threw a fit, Rolled around down in the pits, Losing track of words I spit, Where and how and who they hit. In front of me, silence spun, Dancing with what I had done. My voice was spent. There was none To take what was and make it un-. I closed my eyes, […]
