5 Five Minute Friday: Active

83 / 100

5 Five Minute Friday

This week’s Five Minute Friday  writing prompt is: Active  Some days my clocks seem to be able to be more active than me. Or at least so it seems. I am laid up again this time from a partial knee replacement.  As the healing progresses I look forward to increasing my activity level.

five minutes or less

1. Write for five minutes on the word of the week. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write. 

5 Minute FridayLast weeks prompt was Deep and I didn’t even get five minutes as this was all I wrote….Deep cinnamon-apple-mug-cake.That seems to be an issue for me. Not enough time. I am not doing the task of time management well. We have gone through some transitions in the household and I am working on creating new routines and a new ‘normal’.

5 Minute Friday

When I was younger I was always active. I loved running and jumping. Gymnastics and bike riding was a favorite of mine.  These days it seems my mind is much more active than my body due to high pain.  I just wish the mind was a bit less active at sleep time.


I am trying hard to be a much more active participant in my life. I am trying to be more present and mindful. The last few days my active thoughts have been trying to remember creative (and non messy?) play activities for a 4 year old.  I’ve been active trying to order supplies that we need online and planning for the coming winter.

And my timer is active and now buzzing telling me my five minutes is up.  (free write ends)

I am a parent of six and a gram of three. I’ve worked with kids. I feel like I should have better preparedness but… I need my readers help. What are your favorite preschooler toys, books and activities?  We are providing for a preschooler in need and I want to give it my all.

So far painting and play-doh have been two favorites of the child. I’d like to come up with some crafty make at home activities. Please drop your favorites in the comments.

Meal planning, the only thing the child wants to eat is cereal… so I am working on that. Any tips and tricks, drop them below. Thanks for stopping by and reading!!

  1. I honor your commitment to that pre-schooler in need.
    My 2 year old granddaughter loves to be read to, and yesterday she loved my holiday favorites by Meadow Rue Merrill and the Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs.
