Tis´ beginning to feel a lot like Christmas – Flash Fiction

Molly folded in dried cranberries, candied cherries and orange peel with spiced Carribean rum prepping for the cake, a good month away.

´Perfect timing´, she thought before heading out to witness the first snowfall of the season. Molly spotted white tailed deers as she drove by the Nature Park in her hood.

Calling it a night, she sipped eggnog before curling up her toes under the blankets and dozing off to La-La-land.

She parted the blinds to bask in the sunlight, squealing in excitement. Like she did since a child, chancing upon perfectly sculpted icicles.

´Hello Christmas!´

Writing for Rochelle Wisoff-Field’s Friday Fictioneers based on this week´s photo prompt by Dale Rogerson.




  1. I really enjoy the excitement and anticipation in your story.—maybe because I love the first snow of the season, too. Now all she needs is a phone call from someone special, telling her they’re coming home—or to visit — or to take her sleigh riding. 🙂

    1. You just read my thoughts, Christine! I love white winters and white Christmas. The anticipation of the first snow is magical…I usually love to loiter around the neighbourhood and bask in the beauty of the falling flakes. There´s a mesmerising serenity about white winters…It´s so cold outside and warm inside…Oh love that carol too..Baby its cold outside..lol. Love the snow, the icicles, wild deers, sleigh riding everything….and when coupled with carols, christmas lights, treats…what you have left is sheer heavenly bliss. Keep reading..loved reading your thoughts as well. Hugs! 🙂


  2. How lovely that in a story about an elderly person living on their own there is no trace of melancholy. Molly is still enjoying all the excitement of winter and Christmas, just as a child would. Beautiful thought!

    1. Hey Penny! Absolutely..You got that one so well. A woman absolutely in love with her own company as well as others. I would like to believe that the child in us never dies…I dont think I´ll ever outgrow the little pleasures in life ….like watching the first snow fall or the sight of icicles or rainbows….they always cast a spell be it at 5 or 95 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your lovely thought. Keep stopping by! Cheers! 🙂


  3. That was lovely… and I am reading this watching our very first real snowfall – 1 cm doesn’t count, in my books… we’ve already had a good 8-10 inches so far today!
