    What Really Happened In London

    I apologize for the late post but better late than never. Short and quick today. Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter L; NaPoWriMo challenge: write a dialogue poem. Hopefully, that’s self-explanatory. Hope you like my response. (If you haven’t guessed, I’m a big fan of tongue-in-cheek poetry.) xo Jesi   Libellous Story By Jessica Scott     Pussycat, Pussycat, Where have you been?   Oh, god. Not this again.   Pussycat, Pussycat, Where have you been?   Fine. Let’s get it over with… I’ve been to London. (Except I haven’t-do you know how long it takes before they’d let me out of quarantine?)   Pussycat, Pussycat, Whom did you see?…

    Hello Monday Part 1

    Go ahead and smack me. You know you want to. How can I be glad it’s Monday? But I honestly am. It’s a brand new day, the sun is shining brightly, and the smell of spring is in the air here. I truly enjoy Mondays. Sundays are the days I have a hard time with because everything opens late and closes early. But Monday…yeah, Monday and I are buds. Monday is when I can get almost everything done and then I only have to just work on the upkeep during the week. On the weekends with kids at home, there’s no way on earth that anything stays clean or in…
