The wandering thoughts of a child of God, a wife, a mom to two theater lovin', homeschool graduates, one of which is a missionary wife soon bound for a foreign field far, far away, and a Grandma to the sweetest little girl ever! I'm a friend, a homemaker, a gardener, a woodwife of sorts, an aspiring herbalist, an artisan and crafter, the occasional writer of a fairytale or poem, lover of happy endings, somewhat of a hopeless romantic and a woman interested in traditional, sustainable skills.
Jenny's reached the 100th Saturday Centus and in honor of that milestone, she's using her very first prompt over again. This one is more lengthy than her later prompts and poses a challenge much more specific. She's giving us a word limit of 100 words plus the prompt to see where life takes us.

Here's my spin...
~ My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to retie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.
I stood up slowly and took a nonchalant look around. There didn't appear to be anyone watching so I finished tying my shoe and scooped up the bundle as casually as I could considering how fast my heart was beating. Once I'd stashed it in my bag, I peered into the opening, turning the soggy bundle over. There was a note attached that read, “If you want the key, meet me at 7PM at the old house. Bring the money. Come alone.”
Feeling like a deer, caught in the headlights, I slowly lowered my bag and looked around, again. ~
Pondering My Meanderings...
with much herbal love,
