    How would you like to help me? I am releasing a new Mantra book soon. I need three people who would like to review it for me on Redmund Productions when it is released. If you volunteer for this job, you will get a free, pre-release copy of the book in your choice of Kindle, ePUB or PDF.

    The drawing for an autographed copy is going to be the week it is released. :) Who is in?

    Flash in the Pan is back with the best micro-fiction from 26 authors. Even though the prompts range from culinary delights to eating establishments, these 250 flashes will excite, amaze, scare and revolt you. Set your imagination free and laugh. Toast with ghosts and ride through the countryside. Surprises await in stories no larger than 150 words. Flash fiction is the most fun in the smallest package!

    If we are not careful, the maitre d’ is going to toss us out on our ear!

Muse for Monday

It is only Monday. Why does it feel entirely appropriate to want to do nothing more than put my feet up? Mantra knows.

By a show of hands, who haunts a gym? No? Okay, so who has a torture device exercise equipment in their homes?

Better question: Is it a rack for laundry?

Mantra is under the impression all of that is money wasted. Every last penny. Not that fairies are in much need of watching their figures mind you, she think humans need a far more heuristic approach to the entire exercise phenomenon.

Slide Over is a look at the end of a muscle-building day.

At the end of your call there will be a brief three question survey. Your participation is voluntary, but appreciated.

Slide Over

Slide over, I want to sit down.
I’ve been on my feet all day.
Miles and miles and miles I’ve walked
Yet, never once left the house.
I deadlifted the laundry bin
Far more reps than is prudent.
Then, curled three dozen dishes
To the washer and cabinets,
Endangered a bunny species
And rowed out to Bermuda

With a broom, not a pair of oars.
Since you’ve asked, I will say,
When the babies’ naptime came,
I was quiet as a mouse.
Baking birthday cake from scratch.
I tested disinfectant
Where no one bothers to aim.
Won’t last very long, I bet.
Then, carpool, mail and homework.
So, don’t sit there like Buddha.

Slide over, I want to sit down.
I’ve been on my feet all day.


Are you a household bodybuilder? Which exercise do you do far too many reps? Is it really a laundry rack?

  2. Never been to a gym, but I have my own exercise equipment that I actually use. And an exercise cycle that gets an hour and a half use each week unless I go out on my real bike instead. I hate laundry, so if I could hook up the laundry machine to the exercise bike. . .

    • There’s an invention! Especially if the bike will sort the clothes and fill the machines!

      • I like this idea too, and will be attaching a line in the morning, I do hope that it works :) I wonder if my Evils will be pressed and sided away neatly into the drawer? :) lol

        Binky you are always
        quick to invent something new :)


        • If his invention folds, I will be promoting it to the nth degree. I will see to it there is one in every household in this country!

  3. Ha! I haunt a gym…

    You say it’s only Monday but to me it is Sunday – a week later. I get all the news old…

    • My darling, you are one of the few who still does! At least of the M3 Readers. Most of us are fit in natural or other confines. Something about organized sweating really turns me off ;) Great to see you tonight, even if it is next week, tomorrow and your morning <3

  4. I really like this one Red,
    and a busy mom indeed :)
    Love the way you weave it
    all into this awesome poem :)

    Have a lovely evening Red :)
