The boxes were filling up with old clothes, DVDs, CDs, books and even an old guitar. This was part of our plan to declutter. Detox. Create order out of chaos. Part of our marriage counselling ‘homework’. Create a space for love and togetherness to grow.
“Wait, not that one. Roy.” I took from his hands a green beenie, fingered the aged wool fondly.
“You haven’t used it in years, Katie. Chuck it!”
Ignoring him I placed it on the bed away from the boxes. Little did Roy know that it belonged to my late husband.
Screw cancer, I thought bitterly.
Just in case it is not widely known, “Beenie” is the term we use around here for woollen hats.
Thanks to Bjorn for the vivid photo for this week’s Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle. The challenge is to write a story in 100 words or less. This has really helped me to grow as a writer making each word work for its place on the page (or screen.) I suggest you try it. And it is fun to get to know the other writers through their flash fiction.

I have just celebrated one year on wordpress and I’m pleased that I got to spend all of it with you lot! It has been entertaining, fun and educational. Here’s to another year.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
