Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
My words are:
Log cabin ~ highland cattle ~ crack of dawn ~ site ~ bread ~ dump

There are days when I wish we lived in a log cabin in the middle of the woods, and had enough money for Bob to retire early. We could move to Scotland and raise Highland cattle; that's far away from everything, right?
Bob's work schedule has been crazy lately. When he has an out of town job, he thinks he's being smart by going into work early so that they can get on the road for the long drive to the job site. It seems like he's been going into work at the crack of dawn a lot lately.
For some reason he thinks I need to get up when he gets up. This used to be true when the kids were still going to public school. I liked to be up early enough to drink a little coffee before I had to get the kids up. But, I've been homeschooling for 6 years and that isn't the case anymore. (He's gotten used to me packing his lunch and pouring his coffee while he gets ready for work.)
I could clean the house, bake bread, and make a trip to the dump before the kids get out of bed when I'm getting up that early. Of course, I usually make Bob go to the dump and I don't bake bread even though I'm sure it tastes better. I don't even do much cleaning until I've finished my second cup of coffee.
Shhh...don't tell Bob, but there have been mornings that I went back to bed as soon as his truck was out of the driveway.
Now, take some time and see what words the other bloggers got and what they've done with them :)
I wonder who got mine!?
