SOCS – Yawn & #3TC – Apples/laser/Michigan


Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Yawn

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 16/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!


Three Things Challenge # 2


Today’s prompt: apples, laser, Michigan


I’m combining these two challenges in one today. We have SOCS hosted by Linda G. Hill, and the Three Things Challenge hosted by Paula. You can find details and other entries at the two above links.


Trying to think of something using these three words that pretty much have no connection – apples, laser, & Michigan, is making me yawn.

You see, the 3TC and the SOCS challenge both are today – Saturday.

Three Things Challenge & Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge are writing prompts, and I kind of want to combine them, because I can’t think of anything to do with either of them separately.

My cat Cricket is staring at me, wanting me to get up and get her something…probably food. She won’t eat apples, though, or any people food, except maybe a tiny bite of bacon or something once in awhile. There isn’t any apple flavored cat food that I know of.

We don’t live in Michigan, either. I did hear on the news that the cold weather up there froze some apples on the trees, which then they called ghost apples. That’s because of the ice that covered them, then the apples turned to mush, leaving behind the frozen ice form of the apple. The pictures looked pretty.

What’s any of that got to do with lasers? Nothing at all. We have a cat toy that shines a red laser dot for Cricket to chase around. Except she doesn’t. She just looks at it for a minute. Then she yawns.

Here’s a photo I took of her yawning one day.


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Aww, Cricket is so cute 🙂
    Our apples (at the top, where we don’t pick) freeze and fall down and ferment, and then my dog gets tipsy on em. It’s a thing dogs do. Never knew that until her. Vet says it’s okay, no more than one a day, cause she eats the seeds as well, and those can be poison to them if they eat too many. She doesn’t get one a day, she seems to ration them out to about two a week, lol — temperance, I guess.

    • Thanks, Margaret! She’s a sweet kitty.
      I sometimes combine a challenge or two if it happens that it works out in some fashion or other. Saves time a little I guess. 🙂
