Coffee Time – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Point & Write


Coffee Time – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Point & Write


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “close eyes and point.” Grab the closest printed material to you when you sit down to write your post, open it up (if it’s a book, flyer, etc.), close your eyes, and point. Whatever your finger lands on, use that as your prompt. Have fun!


Thanks for the fun prompt, Linda! This kind is different, as we point to some word or phrase in whatever we have to read close at hand, and then write about it.

Sometimes it take me a few tries to get to something I feel like writing about. I just don’t know what to write about the word ‘the’ or some other word I might have pointed to.

Anyway, today I used a book that I’m reading (it was actually in another room, but there wasn’t much of anything of writing around here where I am).

So, on page 131 of the book, “Monument 14”, by Emmy Laybourne, was the partial sentence ‘fresh pot of coffee’. I can work with that just fine.

We used to use a really old vintage coffee pot. It’s the same kind my parent’s used, and I was lucky enough to find the same kind at a yard sale years ago. It makes great coffee drip style.

Later on we did get a Mr. Coffee machine, and it would make a fresh pot of coffee in a very short time.

Then we got a Keurig coffee making machine. It only makes one cup at a time. So, a fresh cup of coffee is ready whenever you want it in less than a minute. Or maybe a minute – I’ve never really timed it. So easy to use!

Photos are of our vintage coffee pot, as it comes in three parts you put together. Next is of this one plus our Keurig one. I like having both. We can use the fancy one, and just in case it stops working or the power goes out, we can make our fresh pot of coffee in the vintage one right on the stove.


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. That’s a real old-timer, and it looks like it got a lot of use. Bet it makes great coffee. And, unlike the drip coffee makers they sell these days, that one was built to last. We finally bought an electric percolator, and the coffee is great…

    • Thanks, John! I love the old drip o later we have. I have two of them, and gave another to my daughter. I learned to make coffee on this kind, and it’s always good. Just takes a little longer to brew it. 🙂

  2. I like the idea of ‘Random’. Not long after I discovered writing, I discovered something else. I can write about anything. I’m confident I would be able to write a short story about anything in the room. Possibly a glass of water, or pair of shoes. 😊
