Well-Deserved Munchies

She tiredly placed the slabs of bread into the toaster and then while they fused better together, she gathered up the jar of peanut butter and pulled the glass jar of strawberry preserves from the refrigerator. Once the toast was finished, she combined the ingredients slowly, still worn out from kneading the dough an hour ago.

With a glass of milk to finish it off, she tucked into her well-deserved lunch.

Death of an Appliance – Day One

Really could this have happened in
Only ten minutes?

Even though things aren’t completely gone.
News of the mixer’s demise will be met with grief.

I’ve taken part in different prompts and challenges, but the only month-long challenge I’ve ever taken part in is NaNoWriMo which is in November.

I decided that I was going to post a poem about it to help me feel a little better (and it does, a little.)
