⌗FMF, May 17th 2019, PROMISE

It’s Friday again. Write five minutes flat on a word prompt.

What a wonderful word prompt !

Although it is raining today in Toulouse and the weather has gone cooler 14ºC instead of 26ºC all week, the weekend is full of Promise.

We are spending two blissful days in our house in The Dordogne : the promise of the first cherries.

The promise of a quiet retreat away from Internet.

Time to write, read, garden (if the rain lets up) and the promise of heart-lifting spring cleaning in the house.

Clearing away the ashes from the fireplace. Sweeping the cobwebs from the beams and corners.

Working to music, singing and whistling along like Snow White.

Maybe even the promise of a fun game of tennis ! Or meeting with our neighbours and the promise of some enhancing, nourishing news.
