There is currently a poll for Poetry Fishbowl themes in late 2017. Vote for your favorites. I'll sort the most popular ones into a schedule tomorrow so I can post the advance announcement for the August fishbowl.


Poetry in Microfunding:
"A Hope and a Promise" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Aidan and Mrs. Ozenne talk more about Saraphina as she interacts with another toddler.  "The Inner Transition" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Berettaflies.  Valor's Widow finds out what Stylet has in his backpack.  "The Order of Their Stars" belongs to An Army of One.  Astin takes V shopping.

Weather has been sweltering and intermittently rainy here.  Currently blooming: dandelions, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias, firecracker plant, white and red clover, morning glories, spiderwort, echinacea, blackberry lilies, yellow coneflowers, Queen Anne's lace, frost asters, cup plant, black-eyed Susan, torenia.  Corn ears are thickening.  I picked blackberries yesterday.  Jalapenos are getting bigger.

Some news:

1) The linkback poem is now live.  If you have linked to the fishbowl, please tell [personal profile] dialecticdreamer so she can post your verse(s).

2) My net connection is terrible today.  That makes writing very slow and limits my ability to do anything else, such as forward linkback claims.  Also, I may not be able to finish a prompt for every person, or I might need to tweak the fishbowl structure -- I have a lot of outside obligations at the end of this week and most of next.  I will keep you posted.  Sorry for the hassle.

Overall, the home repairs went well.  A whole bunch of stuff got fixed and finished.  Some other stuff is partially fixed, due to running out of time/spoons/materials or discovering partway through that it needed more work than anticipated.  (This is inevitable.  So's the running back and forth to half a dozen different stores.)  A few things turned out less than perfect, like buying new lights that were supposed to be bright blue-white that turned out a deep yellow, almost orange.  But perhaps we can find the blue-white bulbs later.  I have a working light in my closet, a towel bar that doesn't fall off if I blink at it, and other great stuff.  The situation is greatly improved.  \o/

At some point, I want to go through at least some of the stuff from the closet and sort the less-usable items into rag bag or charity disposal.  Now that I can see WTF I am doing in there.  In my copious spare time.  :/

There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, May 2 with a theme of "history written by the losers."  Please drop by then and give me prompts!

Weather has been soggy all week.  The front has blown through, though, so today it is just cloudy and cold with standing water everywhere from all the rain.  We kept getting "flash flood" warnings except 1) it can't flash here and 2) the only warning you really need is when it starts raining upslope.  The fields will flood.  If it's also raining here, it goes over the road.  Pretty predictable.  The birdfeeders have attracted doves, grackles, some sparrows, and a blue thrasher.  Currently blooming: daffodils, tulips, violets, anemones, dandelions, white spirea, honeysuckle, spiderwort, carnations, marigolds, petunias, lantana, million bells, snapdragons, zinnias.  Onion chives and peonies have buds, and so does something in the white garden.
