A to Z Challenge { M and N }

We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posts
  for April's A to Z Challenge!
I'm testing my writing skills with fiction.
These may consist of an opening paragraph, or might even end up as an entire short-story.
I have no idea where my fingers and keyboard will take me
as I'm inspired with each day's corresponding letter.
Take the journey with me!
I look forward to your feedback.
Today's letters:  M and N


 Ever have one of those days where you know if you even PEEK at the computer you're not going to get everything you need done accomplished? That was yesterday for me. Morning arrived and my feet hit the ground running. It was the last day of school before Spring Break, and weekend storms were in the forecast. We worked on our lessons, and then went outside to work in the yard. Son#1 mowed the back yard with the tractor. I pulled out push mower and went to work on the front yard. Son#2 picked up sticks and added them to the 'burn' pile. I stitched some little items for some neighborhood children's Easter baskets...2 crayon booklets, 1 marker roll, 2 baby blocks, and a taggie Bunny w/embroidered chenille face...all so cute...and I forgot to take snaps. The rain has arrived, and here I am catching up on the A to Z Challenge; hence, the combination of M and N. :o)


The muliebrile midinette in her nacarat skirt of nainsook and her ruffled nankeen blouse of mousseline macarized her job as a myropologist. The niasiserie of her métier was pure moria to her, though most didn't understand how she could maintain employment with her manager. That man was mephitic! His napiform melon was oddly macrocephalous, while his menald face gave way to his macilent form. This noddypeak manager emitted a niff that even musk couldn't mask, yet the midinette still maintained a nitid mindset.


Special thanks to Noah Webster and his Unabridged Dictionary for the 'M' and 'N' words.
