Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF

“Where you going kiddo?”
“I thought I heard Friday on the patio.”
“You are right Friday is here.”

 

It is Friday again, and I think I must spend part of the week in a state of unconsciousness. That would be the only reason the week passes so quickly. Well, here we are on the eve of the weekend.

It has been a week of finally getting past the block on my WIP. I still can’t figure out what the problem was, but managed to move on. I have been able to score one thousand words a day which is my goal.

On Sunday, we will be visiting the Enchanted Forest again. There are some interesting things done with the trees so we will concentrate on those. I hope you can make it.

This week’s JohnKu talks about peace and quiet. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

When all is quiet,

Do not suspect something’s wrong . . .

Sound of peace working.

    1. The only time to worry about quie is when you have a toddler in the house. 😁

  11. Good poem. I’ll admit that peace and quiet puts me on edge. Too many calms before the storms.

  16. Hi, John! I’m happy your muse decided to visit you again. They can be so temperamental sometimes. A peaceful weekend sounds fantastic, but it’s not happening for me this ‘Mother’s Day’ weekend, though. Have a good one. Happy Writing! πŸ˜€ xo
