Take Seven: November 13th

It’s Friday……….. and Friday the 13th to boot.

Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

Our words were:
after, day, dream, ear, envy, error, fallen, familiar, flash, fragrant, hero, limp, pleasure, remember, scarred, smoke, spirit, superstition, tow, unlucky, vane.
He was no dreamboat, mentally scarred and walked with a limp, but she saw beyond that, saw the spirit of the hero he once was and in a flash, had fallen for him hook, line and sinker.
Some had said it was an error of judgement to take on such a traumatic history and didn’t envy the difficulties she might encounter, but she didn’t listen and never went anywhere without him in tow. They were inseparable now and trusted each other implicitly. She’d had a weather vane designed in his likeness which was very popular and a good money earner.
As she stroked him lovingly behind the ears, he rumbled with pleasure, the fragrant smoke of jasmine drifting across the room, relaxing and calming after a long day. She had no qualms about the old superstition that black cats were unlucky.
witches often had them as their familiars.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Very nice! If black cats are unlucky, I’m sunk, I have three! No, I am not a “cat person,” two just moved in on their own accord.
