Micro shoe


Susan from Stony River sets a weekly
Challenge Picture each Monday,

where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer


The cobbler lozenge slipped from Fey’s fingers into the shoe. She’d heard about the Elves and the Shoemaker and planned to rewrite history. (140 characters with spaces)

or

Cinders  knew the cobbler lozenge would resize the shoe and then she could marry the Fairy Prince. (97 characters with spaces)



I’m still feeling weak and washed out a lot and then I get a day when my energy seems to have returned only to feel wiped out again the next day.  While I find I can do  snippets on blogland I then have to lie down again as I feel so tired. It means I get very little done and feel frustrated. I am off to see the doctors again tomorrow, so fingers crossed.

  11. Cool "take"! Lahzzinjgehe...lahhhzzzendahgehnzz... Lonzenge! There! I've got it! Lozennge is a hard word for me to say. I think it's the "z" and the "g". They shouldn't be together in one word. I'm just saying.

  12. I voted at last. Slap my wrist for taking so long!

    I really wish you were starting to feel better. Horrible, nasty viruses. I hope the doctor comes up with some helpful suggestions.

    Hugs

  16. I, too, thought immediately of the Shoemaker. It's one of my favourite sayings. But I really loved your "cobbler lozenge"! Not a mint, a lozenge. Fabulous!

  26. I hope the doctor can find what's wrong and help you get your energy back! Very cute stories - at first I thought you said 140 words and then I realized it's 140 characters. You said a lot in those 140 characters!
