Today’s daily prompt from the daily post is Lookin’ Out My Back Door “Look out your back window or door — describe what you see, as if you were trying to convey the scene to someone from another country or planet.”

When I look out my back door, I see a series of things. The first thing which catches my eye is the vegetable garden. It is a couple of feet high, and has soil filled in it almost to the top. A wooden barrier or boundary surrounds the garden, with a step stool in front for people to tend to the garden.
Another thing I notice is the next door house. They have a fence which separates our property from theirs. There is a small rectangular window in the side of the home. There are two pine trees in the backyard, a little taller than our house.
Coming in closer to my house, there is a deck, a reddish-brown color. Robins, sparrows, doves, and occasionally hawks or cardinals perch on the railing. They play, fight, and feed. In the spring, sometimes I even see small chicks learning how to fly.

Today’s daily writing prompt from the Daily Post is “If I could turn back time“
If I could relive a part of my life, it would be the elementary school years. Those were the careless, free days. School days were kind of like daycare. We would play many games, do fun activities, and get lots of recess. (I remember playing four square with a bunch of friends outside. I was really good at that game. XD)
We never had to worry about anything important. Our only problems were things like, “He budged in line!” or “She took my spot!”
That is why I would like to relive and cherish those first years of my life. No work, responsibilities, or worries.
However, being in middle school, I am still relatively care free. I’m not quite a young adult, or a small child. I am right in between. When I’m older, my opinion on this topic might change. I have many more years to go. 🙂
Today the daily prompt from The Daily Post, is Origin Story. I chose the photo challenge, which is Beginnings.
My mom is growing some cilantro in the vegetable garden in my backyard. The plants are still tiny little sprouts sticking out of the soil, so I thought a picture of that would be a good way to represent beginnings.
