Time brings change

As the old adage goes: Time changes everything. This applies to my little blog now.  In the past I have focused more on Glitter Bug but as she grows things have changed. The stories she is living now are hers to tell or keep to herself. She nows dreads the flash of the camera. This change has prompted me into rediscovering what makes me outside of being her mother. ( I will ALWAYS be her mother no matter what.)

I thought  a quick post about sharing this would help explain where things are going and I hope you stay around to see where we end up. If not, that is cool and it was nice to have you here. I have just been told by Glitter Bug there are still a few stories she will let me share so she will still be around a little.

 

Until we next meet,

Where do those ideas go?

I am sure you can tell by the title of this post, my ideas have left me. Don’t get me wrong, they are still in the big space of my mind. They simply do not want to come out. Just as I get ready to put one on paper or continue with another one, they jump ship. Then all I can think is: What are you guys doing? Quit running away.” So that let sums up my ideas are at the moment.

My midget is keeping me busy. She has an attitude to match her cuteness. Some of things she says has you rolling and then the next minute you want to send her to her room. The other day she and I were playing and she look up at me so serious and said: “Momma, the Wizard of Oz is my movie. It is my second favorite. You can’t have it anymore. Okay?” I just agreed with her. She has always love it and simply loves her red slippers we got her. I don’t mind her wanting her own copy of it. We( aka me) have like three different DVDs of it and two VCR tapes of it. (Yes I know hardly anyone has a VCR player any more.) So yeah she can have her own copy of it.

This got long quick. Okay, I promise to have some more ideas on here within the week. Better keep checking because it will be a new one!!

1940s idea

Okay I had an idea about a teenager/college age person looking for work for the summer. The only thing left is a job no one wants, at an antique store which seems to be stuck in the 1940s or 1950s. The record player only plays that kind of music. No modern technology works there. It really feels like you have step back in time. Maybe leading to a mystery of time travel or people living extend periods of time. Something I really have never done before. I think it could be fun to write. Just having a blast with ideas floating around my head. Need feedback on this.

Another Idea

The black Cat waited in the dewy meadow with the cold grey morning light filtering through the tress hoping Sin wold return today. He was tow weeks longer than he should. If he did not return today, Cat would seek help from Marsh. That is if she would be any help to them. Cat told Sin to let him go as well, but he thought it would be too dangerous. Maybe next time he would listen to some advice instead of running to fix things. If there was a next time.

Just another idea. Things have been a little wild for me lately. Which is why I have not posted in a while. Keep checking back because I am feeling myself again.

New Story.

Well folks this is another one of my ideas. This one is not long. Hope you enjoy.

“Help the Faeries before its too late!!!”
That was the last text message I received from Jean two months ago. Since then I have been on a wild hunt, so to speak. Let’s just say for argument’s sake there are things in this world you not realize. Faeries being just one of the many things people have stopped believing in.

The last part of this story.

Well, this is the end of this story as of now. I am working on this one and I can’t seem to find any where this should go next. Hope you enjoyed this story and will be posting more as it comes available. Without futher ado the last part:

“She is here, keep looking. And it looks like I will be getting your pay for the next month. Never bet against someone who knows how Mages act.”
As I kept moving, I wondered why James had wagered against William. Surely Queen Miar would be interested in knowing that her own men bet on the outcome of the missions that they were sent. If they knew my true identity, why had they not acted? I began fleeing towards the line of trees that were near the road, a large shadow melted into view and walking very fast towards me causing me to spin around and start running towards the trees.
“Well, Tream, what did you see? Demanded William.
“Sir, just as Ream and I were closing in, the darkness became heavy around her and we lost sight of her. If we didn’t know that she was Mage Errigal, we would think her to be part Faye.”
“What is everyone’s problem with the Faye tonight? The tales that everyone is afraid of were made up by us. Stop talking nonsense. She is just another mage; there is no Faye within her. She used one of her tricks to escape us. More than likely she is still within hearing distance. Keep searching for her. I don’t want to report a failure to capture a mage, no matter how great they are supposed to be.”
Things just keep getting better with every breath, for the Seekers at least. I could not believe I had been caught in one of their traps. It would seem that I would have been better off asking for help from the Faye. It was too late to think that. To keep from being escorted back to the Queen, I kept running through the trees, since they were the few safe places for Mages. A gentle thought reminded the trees they needs to protect me and sent a plea for shelter to the Elves who lived in the area. I knew help would be questionable because of the standing treaty with Queen Miar.
As fatigue set in my legs, the morning light began filtering through grey clouds.

Glitter Bug and Momma day

Well, we did have a good day. I would say the only bad part was that I have misplaced my camera. So I am sad to say there are no pictures. I would not have traded it for anything. I think the best part was that my sister got her Explore stuck in her ditch. It was awful. Well for her but the rest of of us thought it was funny.
I have some great news! My husband starts his new job tomorrow. I am so happy he has work. It has been a hard year and a half with no job for him. I am just thankful I had two jobs to hold the family somewhat together. And now he can feel like a man again as he says. To me he has been a man the whole time. I don’t know how many men can stay at home and help raise a child.
Got to go to bed. Hope to tell yall about my next story soon.

Until we next meet,

Part four of my story

“Aye William is my name, now if you please.”
Silly man if he really thinks this proves anything. A simple illusion, which any mage could do, would work on the average person, but I must remember that William and his companion may not just be average people. So the picture would have to be of an actual person close to me; that way they could feel the connection I have to them. This idea was beginning to like very bad one. With one last thought, I began to bring up the image of April, my little sister that I had not seen in a few years, who would help for the aging part. It was hard not to make April look like Mother. Our mother has been sick for many years but had aged well because she was a minor mage, which explains how I got my ability. If I made April look like our mother when she was better, the Seekers could locate my family quickly and use their welfare against me. I must take caution. I could tell by looking at the two gentlemen, that they were starting to believe me and now I could keep tabs on them, without worrying about them following me.
“Alright, Err, we believe what you have told us. However, if we are going to be traveling tonight, then you must listen to what we have to say and follow what we tell you. It is dangerous to travel at night especially for ladies. Stay close and let us do the talking. One of the Faye’s favorite prey is night travelers.”
It was hard for me to keep a straight face at this. What some people will be believe. And to top it off, a Seeker no less, thought the Faye are dangerous. They were a Mage’s best communication. Of Course, now I know they didn’t know who I was. I would have to keep in mind what these men said. Mistress Morgyn would get a kick out of this one. That is if she was going to talk to me after trusting Seekers over her own people in this matter, no matter how strongly I felt about it. Trusting her was one thing, but some of her people were more loyal to Queen Miar more than Mistress Morgyn knew. To help her, I was willing to risk her wrath and future help from the Faye.
The traveling for the first couple of hours went fairly smooth. There were many times I had trouble dealing with certain problems that came about. One problem stayed with us, the two that were following us. If my companions were Queen’s Seekers, then they were playing their part as normal travelers very well. I could not let my full mage abilities be seen nor felt. However, we could not be slowed down or attacked by them. My sense of urgency was growing with each step. What was I going to do? There is no time to think, just time to act; our unwelcome company was upon us. The blackness began to feel more like a heavy cloak wrapping me within itself as I moved a fraction of an inch by instinct, two pair of hands grabbed the empty space that I had just occupied.
“Damn, Will, she is gone. Just like a Faye.” James cursed.

Part Three

things were turning out, they might just catch up to me before I reach the next town if I don’t ask for some help from either some other traveler or from the Faye. Asking the Faye for their help would the most likely thing but then other mages would be able to ask about me and then my plans would be known. I knew that there was a couple of Faye that did not help any mages besides me because of the favors done for them in the past but that did not stop them from talking to each other about me. The solution seemed easy enough but would the humans I picked be willing to believe that I was doing what I thought was right and not negating my duties or even worse turning rouge like that Gerald?
As I was packing the saddle bags and saddling my tired horse again, a thought kept coming back to me. The two men that were talking about me didn’t seem to be the normal pair traveling together. The one called William did not appear to be as old as the others thought him to be. Could he be a Queen’s agent? If he was then the other man, James must be as well. I knew that the Queen’s agents came in pairs because of the line of work that they were in is extremely dangerous. Only mages that could prove their unfaltering loyalty could become agents. I had turned down becoming a Seeker as only a few knew them. There have only been a couple times they could not find what the Queen sent them out for. The results of those fruitless trips are still something that is not discussed. If those two men are Seekers then they might not know who I am at this moment. I had been careful to keep the hood up as if it were cold which was not too unbelievable since it was early fall. No one seemed worried about me sitting alone instead of being around the big fire. All this considered I realized that I was relying on chance too much and asking them to go with me would let me keep an eye on them just in case they were Seekers. Done with packing, I set off to ask if they would accompany me tonight.
When I found them, they were quietly discussing with each other. I was only able to catch the last couple of words and they sounded strangely like these two men might know who I really was. For a fleeting moment I was tempted to turn and leave as quick as possible, but then decided if they knew me, it meant a pursuit I didn’t have time for nor wanted.
“Good evening. I was wondering if the two of you would be kind enough to accompany a lady on her journeys. I know that it is night and the worst sort travel at night, but I must make it to the docks soon. My mother is ill and a ship will be leaving within the next week. I need to be on it.”
“Lady….we don’t know your name. How are we to be sure that you really are on the errand that you say you are on? Not just bandit who is trying to deceive us. We saw you ride in after everyone else. Prove to us your errand and we will consider your request for our company.” William said.
“If you insist on such silly things which anyone can do William; that is your name if my memory serves me well? My name is Err.” I said.

Time….

The question of the day is where does the time go? It just feels just like last week that I put up the second part of my story but as I can see now it was not. Maybe I should not spend so much time on Facebook. Point of this post you ask? Just to say family is doing fine. Freya is exploreing the world and kinda figuring out her own boundiers we have set for her. She has kept us going night and day lately. However, I would not chance any of it. Speaking of her, it is time to go fly with her fairy wings. Will post pictures of this later.

Until next we meet,
A
