Today’s prompt: stripes, lemonade, astronaut

Today’s prompt: cousin, folder, iguana

I’m combining yesterday’s and today’s 3TC prompt words, because yep, I ran out of time yesterday. Hope you enjoy this little story. 🙂

Space Girl

MY cousin, Izzy, which was short for Isabel, wanted to be an astronaut when she grew up.

In order to go to college, and space training, she had to pay her own way, because that’s just the way it was in her family…unless you earned it, you didn’t get it.

So early on, she became a budding entrepreneur with her own business. She opened the first lemonade stand in her neighborhood. She took part in all the National Lemonade Days, by taking their little courses, and learned a lot on how to run a successful business.

Every year she’d set up her stand, offering regular lemonade, pink lemonade, and even lemonade ice pops that she’d made.  She kept a running count of her expenses, and her income, and her profits were soon out of this world good. Her little notebook folder, which she decorated herself with a cute iguana and colorful stripes along the edges was a conversation piece. Everyone commented on what a sweet little girl she was, and who had big aspirations could be such an imaginative artist, too.

Years passed, and Izzy’s dream was at hand. She was an accomplished astronaut, about to take her first flight into space. Along side her was her pet lizard, Lizzy, the first iguana to go into space. She and Lizzy made history that day, as they flew high into the sky on NASA’s latest and greatest rocket ship…destination – exploration of a galaxy far, far away.

Izzy and Lizzy never returned to Earth, but sent dispatches from their travels in space from time to time. Her messages all said the same thing…”Never give up on your dreams…reach for the stars.”

Three Things Challenge # 2

Today’s prompt: apples, laser, Michigan

***

I’m combining these two challenges in one today. We have SOCS hosted by Linda G. Hill, and the Three Things Challenge hosted by Paula. You can find details and other entries at the two above links.

Trying to think of something using these three words that pretty much have no connection – apples, laser, & Michigan, is making me yawn.

You see, the 3TC and the SOCS challenge both are today – Saturday.

Three Things Challenge & Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge are writing prompts, and I kind of want to combine them, because I can’t think of anything to do with either of them separately.

My cat Cricket is staring at me, wanting me to get up and get her something…probably food. She won’t eat apples, though, or any people food, except maybe a tiny bite of bacon or something once in awhile. There isn’t any apple flavored cat food that I know of.

We don’t live in Michigan, either. I did hear on the news that the cold weather up there froze some apples on the trees, which then they called ghost apples. That’s because of the ice that covered them, then the apples turned to mush, leaving behind the frozen ice form of the apple. The pictures looked pretty.

What’s any of that got to do with lasers? Nothing at all. We have a cat toy that shines a red laser dot for Cricket to chase around. Except she doesn’t. She just looks at it for a minute. Then she yawns.

Here’s a photo I took of her yawning one day.

This is something new I’m trying, called the Three Things Challenge. Paula has taken on the hosting duties for this. You can find details at the above link. Thanks, Paula!

What happens is she will list 3 words for us daily to make something of, be it a story, poem, or whatever we want.

The 3 words for today are: seashells, letter, and yoga

While doing yoga on the beach

My hand stretched out in a lengthy reach

Got distracted by pretty seashells

Meditations came with waves and swells

Arranged the shells with letters formed

Spelled yoga – now the sand adorned
