The She Shed – Friday Fictioneers

Top of the mornin’ to you, my Readers!  Been up and at ’em since 6:30 am.  Why, you ask?  Because.  Because. I dunno why but I decided to not try to go back to sleep and get stuff done!  Coffee and Friday Fictioneers seemed like the perfect place to start.  The sun is shining – YAY!  FINALLY – so I shall be taking advantage of it before it’s off to work.

The She Shed

When they visited the property, she spotted the old potting shed.  Her husband was quick to say they would tear it down first thing.

“Oh hell no!” she exclaimed.  “Consider it my project, darling.  I’ll fix it up.  You’ll be amazed, just you wait and see.”

He shrugged and they bought the property.

As promised, Charlotte worked on the shed diligently, ripping out the overgrowth, painting and beautifying.  When done, she showed it to Sam.

“Wow!  I’d hang out with you here!”

“Don’t think so, Bud.  Virginia Woolfe said a woman needs room of her own…   It’s my She Shed!”

  1. Good morning. Almost 7am here on the prairies, where we have been experiencing days of high winds, but not many drops of rain. I woke up early, too, but started the more mundane task of laundry.

    Enjoyed your little tale; I’m sure she will love her “she shed” now it’s all cleaned up. And that buffet, which looks like one my m.i.l. once had, would be beautiful if restored. 🙂

    • Oh, trust me… she kept that beauty! 😉
      I have been helping Rochelle with some link ups (her own included!)
      Getting warmer by the minute so looks like the pool shall get vacuumed and the outside lamps washed and bulbs changed – been in the dark for a while!

  2. Laughter ensues! LOVE it! For a brief few months before we downsized in a move, I did have a “studio”. I can’t begin to say how much I miss it. Now, I have to share with Hubby and his Ham radio rig…. no quiet contemplations allowed…Ugh! Looking for an acre of land to set a little shed on…yep, indeedy!

  3. Dear Dale,

    I have my upstairs room…my writer’s garret, if you will. Fortunately, hubby’s too lazy to ascend the stairs and we can keep it that way. 😉 Love Charlotte’s spunk. Good one! Thanks for sharing coffee and technology this morning.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  4. My she shed’s the kitchen. Oh and the bedroom. And then there’s the bathroom… Great take on the prompt Dale, and thanks for getting my link up there, you little techno phobe you! 🙂

    • My shed was the kitchen, and my bedroom and definitely my bathroom – the only one NO ONE is allowed into…
      You are most welcome, Madame!

  5. Love this flash in so many ways, Dale. It was beautifully written and I loved the concept of a “she shed” and I want to sign up for one. I definitely need my own space. Just what every woman needs.
    I really loved the photo for this week’s prompt with the plants growing around the sideboard. There was so much that could be done with it.

    • Thank you so much, Rowena! I am pleased as punch you think so. I think we really do need it.
      It was a great photo indeed!
      Dale xo

  6. Yeah, we’ve heard of the “man cave”, it’s about time for a she shed 🙂 And she didn’t do all that work for him to move in with his beers and newspaper.

  7. I built Connie an 864 square foot building. It’s got a wood stove and CDs of Allison Krause, but she still comes to the house at least once a month.

  8. I really did have a she-shed as a child. It was just great. No brothers allowed. Now I have my she-writer’s den that looks out at my wonderful garden, which contains a shed that resembles my old she-shed. I like what you did with my photo prompt, Dale. It made me smile and reminisce most pleasantly 🙂

  9. So funny how men seem to need a space of their own – a man shed full of tools, a room filled with their collectables – but it doesn’t happen so much the other way round. A She Shed – I like that Dale 🙂
