Slice of Life: Do you not do Tuesdays? A slicing call to action!

    I'm doing my best to keep up the slicing habit on Tuesdays! All are welcome! Join us at Two Writing Teachers!

Do you not do Tuesdays?

Larkin's text had come through a while earlier, and I didn't understand it when I checked my phone. 

My response: ?


Oh no. Slicing. And I'm even hosting. I've checked for posts that have slipped through into the pending pile throughout the day, and when I woke up this morning, I planned on posting. I even had a few good stories to tell. Somehow, it kept getting put off. A workout, a meeting, a friend for lunch, a daughter to pick up at the airport, more friends for dinner. (It's good to have a warmer day and vaccinations!)

Today got away from me, I texted back to Larkin. 

Happens to the best of us. 

Did you write?


That settled it. It's well before midnight, and even more so in Denver where Larkin lives. I'm so happy that my daughter associates Tuesdays with slicing. Her text was my slicing call to action! Larkin, this one is for you!

Happy Slicing,


  1. Even the shortest text becomes a slice of your life, Melanie. This is a great model for those of us who slip in before the call of midnight. LOL Somehow I missed your March slices but of course you know that I enjoy reading your thoughts.

  2. Ah, what a sweet little slice of your life. I thought you would have some advice for us if we didn't do Tuesdays. Haha! But having a slicing daughter is a great reminder. This is precious.

  3. Love it! I must admit Larkin commented on my post and it made me so happy to see her on a Tuesday. I popped over this morning to comment on her post and found you too.

  4. I missed the first Tuesday after March and it's OK because mow I'm looking forward to Tuesdays.
