My Project - A Six Sentence Story

It was one of these lazy summer Sundays, with not much else to do but to feel the lush grass under my toes, to enjoy the sun's heat on my skin, and to listen to the girls laughing as they run and play with their friends.

It was one of these lazy summer Sundays (or any day, really), where Calvin did not quite know what to do with himself but to crawl all over me and let some drool drip on to my shirt.

It was one of these lazy summer Sundays, when a tub of soap bubbles just happens to turn up, and I started to entertain Calvin (or myself??).

It was one of these lazy summer Sundays, where I watched Calvin chase bubbles as good as he could, watching them in awe how they shine in all colors of the rainbow as they slowly waft across the yard, dancing on the breeze.

It was one of these lazy summer Sundays and I was laying on my back on our backyard trampoline, blowing bubbles, and listening to Calvin's giggle as he tried to catch them, when my gaze fell through the bubble wand up to a little circular piece of sky.

I think a project may have been born.


This piece of writing was born thanks to Ms. Ivy Walker's ingenious link-up, the Six Sentence Stories. Thank you so much, Ivy!!

  4. I felt so relaxed languishing in your story. Bubbles are so much fun, aren't they? Being outside with a curious toddler, feeling the love. Nice story.

  5. I think you've come up with a great project to do, although I will say the first thing I thought was that you would be holding the bubble wand up and a drop of bubble formula would drip into your eye. Ow!

  6. You so perfectly captured the mood of a kick-back and relax Summer Sunday. The repetition was so soothing. A project born of bubble rainbows would have to be something quite wonderful!

    1. It was more the bubble wand, Josie! And yes, lazy summer Sundays can be quite relaxed around here, especially if the girls are out and about the neighborhood with their friends ;-)
