My plans last night was to work on The Boondock Kids once my boys had gone to bed. I was not thinking about the grass I would have to cut though. I had let both of my yards go for too long between writing on the weekends and working on my rental house. I had to mow and ran into trouble about 20 minutes later.
My second mower quite running because the high grass over heated the motor, leaving me with a much cheaper push mower as the only option left to cut the grass. What only takes one hour to mow, took just over three hours. I was very hot and admit that my woork schedule had a say in my tiredness last night.
I picked up my boys and spent the night ordering a pizza and having a great dinner. As we sat around the living room eating, I struggled to remain awake. As 9:30 came around, Rylen was already asleep while Lynden was growing tired. we all decided to turn in and call things a night. Only Ethan remained awake, watching television for a short time.
This morning we had another great breakfast and played some board games and even a little on the Nintendo which has become a Sunday afternoon routine for us now. Lynden and Ethan went with their mother on a short trip while Rylen and I drove one town over and ordered two vanilla milkshakes. The store was busy, giving us a reason to take a country drive as we drank our shakes.
We eventually came into another neighboring town and decided to visit so grandparents. It was a good time spent and allowed me a great evening with Rylen. Then it was time for him to return next door to his mother and I began laundry. Done and put away, I sat down and worked in another page of The Boondock Kids.
The Kids were all laughing at Kelmare and his comment that a classroom seemed to be a wonderful place to sit. It was then that they reached a large plateau area that gave them a vast area in the mountains that allowed them to see various levels of mist in the air.
Kelmare was asked how they were to go any further and he happily pointed out a gentle slope that led off of the left side of the plateau and further along in the valley. Mario and Sindy led the way towards the slope when Louis stopped. When asked what was wrong, he replied that something did not feel right and he felt as though something was coming.
Mario and Sindy did not feel anything and assume that Louis’s fear of heights might have their friend a bit nervous. As they began to make their way over the side, Cristena also stopped, saying she too felt as though something was coming. Kelmare then peered over the edge of the plateau for a moment but could not see anything.
Louis and Cristena made their way towards the center of the plateau and began to look around. This made Mario and Sindy slightly cautious as they moved away from the slope and towards the center as well.
The, From out of nowhere, a seven foot tall creature floated up from the valley and hovered just over the edge of the plateau. I had long pointed fingeres and toes, white spiked hair and had cobalt black eyes that almost appeared hollow. It’s black duster overcoat flapped in the air as the creature hovered.
Sindy asked what this creature was and Kelmare knew immediatly that they were in trouble because before them was a Whimsic!!
As the day ends and a new week begins, I want to wish you a wonderful Monday! Oh, I almost forget, a date of October 3rd has been set for me talking to a high school writing class. I am super excited about this and look forward to setting a concrete time.
