How to Waste Time – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Instructions


How to Waste Time – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Instructions

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 13/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “instructions.” Write instructions for anything you know how to do. As detailed or as rambling as you’d like. Enjoy!


For today’s SOCS, Linda has given us the instructions to write about instructions. This will be interesting to see.

If you’d like to join in, just click the above link for details, and also to see more entries about instructions. 🙂


I’m probably an expert in wasting time. I have plenty of time in a day, just like everyone does, but at the end of the day I’ve found I did nothing much.

If you’d like to know how to waste time too, here’s some instructions of the way I do that:


Get up early

make coffee  & feed cat

play computer games while you are waking up

look outside – it’s still dark

heat up coffee that has gotten cold already

Look outside – it’s light out now

Count cats

go in another room

forget why you came in there

go back to original room

flip through a jillion tv channels for something good

don’t find anything good

look out window at the birds

count cats again

feed & water cats

talk to cats

decide to listen to that song that you can’t get out of your head

find it  – listen to it

listen to several more songs

decide you need to move around some, so do some living room dancing

try to get the cat involved – she just stares at you

make up silly words to song for the cat – she just stares at you, then goes to sleep

go get some iced tea

think of something to write on blog

now you’re hungry – go to kitchen – maybe you’ll get an idea

take a photo of what you found to eat

look at the hundreds of photos you already have

look at the time – half the day is gone already

get a text from somebody – answer it

this takes awhile, as the conversation goes back & forth

look at time

get more iced tea

count cats – aww they are so cute … look at them being cute

wait – one of the cats aren’t there

worry about where that cat is

watch birds eat cat food

watch cats watching the bird eating their cat food – and they don’t care

check the weather on TV or phone – look outside to see if it matches what the TV or phone says – it doesn’t

try to keep your eyes open, because you got up so early you now need a nap

play some computer games to stay awake

remember you’re supposed to be doing a blog post

look at time – it’s late – time for bed

next day – repeat all the above


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • haha They do seem to multiply around here. We have quite a few outside cats, some regular that stay all the time, others come and go. I like to keep track of how many are out there, and don’t like to be missing any. Also, sometimes they get under the truck, so we have to make sure none are there before we drive off. 🙂

    • Thanks, Li! When the mister was still working, the days had a different routine, but now we just do whatever we want, which turns out pretty much the same every day. 🙂
      Very cool for the tag! I’ll check it out and respond soon. 🙂

      • I hear you on the routine. There is something to be said for it, especially when it is what you choose you want to do every day 🙂 OK on the tag!


      • This is true, it is nice to do whatever you have in mind each day. Still, I waste too much time just thinking of what to do next. haha!
        🙂 🙂


    • Thanks, John!
      We feed and shelter quite a few out there. I like to know they are all still around, and miss them when they are not. Cats sure have a way of finding hiding places. 🙂


    • I’m sure you’ll enjoy your retirement! Guess I never retired, as I barely ever did work a job outside of the house. But, the mister sure likes his retirement. 🙂
