She Keeps Me Warm

This Is Your Song

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

She Keeps Me Warm by Mary Lambert is a great song.  It’s my kind of lesbian anthem, sweet and cheery.  The song is all about comfort and love.  I fell in love with the first time I heard it.

If I had written (wrote?) this post back when I first heard this song, the title of this post would have been “I can’t change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to.”

Last winter, Mercy was keeping the apartment so hot that I had to where shorts and a tank top whenever I was home.  One day this song came on and all I could think of was Mercy…She keeps me warm!

The Train that Wouldn’t Pass

It’s the end of Spring Break and I haven’t been out of the house much.  I’m bad about being active during breaks from school.

“Let’s get out of the apartment.  We need ice and I need to stop at he convenience store” Mercy prods me.

Ok, I’ll be ready in a minute.  What’s it like outside?   Is it raining?

“Not raining right now, the sun’s even out.”

I look in the mirror. Wow!  I showered last night, but my hair is spiked on one side.  A quick rub with a damp washcloth and some leave in conditioner and I look normal again.

Ready!  Let’s go.

I grab my jacket before heading to the door.  We walk out the door.  As I get two steps from the sidewalk, I see big rain drops slowly coming down.

“Shut up!  It wasn’t raining a minute ago!”

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

I didn’t say a word, just put on my jacket and stepped into the rain.

Born to Be With You

Daily Prompt: Born to Be With You

Got a soul-mate and/or a best friend? What is it about that person that you love best? Describe them in great detail — leave no important quality out.

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!

Mercy is my partner of 16 years.  She’s 5’10” , has short brown hair with blonde highlights, beautiful brown eyes, a cute little crooked nose, long elegant hands and feet, big-boned, flawless skin with a slight natural tan, and long legs.  She doesnt find herself beautiful, but I get lost in her face.  I have a thing for vampires and after her long stay in the hospital last year she now has semi-permanent vampire bite marks on her neck where her central line was. (I know I’m weird.)

Que Sera Sera

Daily Prompt: Que Sera Sera

Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny?

Simply answer? Yes.

But wait there were two options, how can I answer yes?

Because I’m a Pisces through and through.  I almost always have at least two answers to the same question.

What do I want for dinner? Sushi!  No.  Steak!  No. Tofu Pad Thai! No!

Except when I have only one answer…like when teaching Math.  Although even then, I may give two different ways of looking at the problem.

Moments to Remember

Daily Prompt: Moments to Remember

What are the three most memorable moments — good or bad, happy or sad — in your life? Go!

Mercy almost dying Feb 27, 2013 and a doctor saying, “She’s really sick.  We don’t know why and we don’t know if she’s gonna make it.  It might be leukemia.”  Thank God she got better and is thriving.  There are still more steps to achieve, but critical isn’t even on the table any more.

Share Your World – Week 12

Share Your World – Week 12

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

I love the smell of home cooked food.  In fact, as I walk through my apartment complex and smell someone cooking, I’d like to stop and knock on their door to find out what they are cooking.  I don’t stop, but maybe I should write a story about someone who does stop every time.  What would the resident say to this strange woman knocking on their door and asking about their food?

Now if we are talking about scents to wear or to smell on others?  I love Egyptian Musk by Garden Botanica and have worn it for 20 years.
