Hiya, Welcome back to PEP! On a separate note from PEP, Paula’s Pet Paradise is taking off! Which of course, I’m thrilled about and thankful. I have a steady walking job as well as several dog-sitting jobs through the middle of May and then much of June is booked already. I’m ecstatic that it’s going so well and will be doing my best to ensure it continues to do well.
I will do better about posting on Fridays. The problem is not only am I busy with Camp NaNoWriMo, which is going very well, but PPP is taking off and my schedule is fairly sporadic-not that I’m complaining. I’m actually enjoying it as every day is different. Also, I couldn’t decide what to make the focus of April as I did writing last month. I think I may continue Cheryl’s Adventure for the last few Fridays this month and do a new Focus come May, maybe animals. If ya’ll have any request, I’m happy to read and consider them.
This week’s question: Things you’ve done that you never thought you could do?
My answer: the first item off the top of my head is climbing Dunn’s Waterfall in Jamaica. I did it as I was with someone who wanted to do it, I hadn’t even heard of it before the cruise we were on. Looking at it, I had no idea if I could do it or not. But I took my chance and gave it my all. I have video proof that it really did happen, that I really did climb the waterfall from the bottom to the top. It was exhilarating and I will continue to try and do other things that I don’t know if I can do them or not. If you don’t try, you never will.
What’s your answer?
This week’s baking and cooking: This week I baked Lemon Yogurt Muffins and Three Layer Brownies. They were delicious! I also made Spicy Hot Corn for the new cooking recipe: Sides. This month is Salads. Now, however, I’ll be moving from place to place over the next few weeks for dog-sitting so I can’t be sure when I’ll be doing more baking or new cooking recipes. I do promise that I will update this with pictures and details when I have new recipes. Also, you can watch my Instagram, I always post the new baking there.
This week’s writing: A continuation of last week’s:
The branch made its connection with a *Wham*! He went down, grasping at his neck where the branch had hit on the upswing she’d had. She didn’t stop to make sure he stayed down; choosing to take off while she could. She didn’t know where she was headed, she just knew the woods had to end eventually.
Pushing her way through the trees, she didn’t realize she never heard his footsteps behind her. She’d managed to crush his trachea, depriving him of oxygen. He wouldn’t be getting up again.
Not realizing she was now completely alone, she stumbled through a crop of trees, feet suddenly hitting a dirt road. She stumbled over the different ground and fell to her knees. Her hands gripped the dirt, mind scrambling to catch up with the fact she was now on a road. Roads had to lead somewhere, now she just had to pick a direction. She pushed herself up to her feet, stumbling to her left, hoping it would lead somewhere safe, that he wouldn’t catch up to her.
