To the Left – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

https://lindaghill.com/2021/05/07/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-may-8-2021/

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “to your left.” When you sit down to write your post, look to your left. What is the thing closest to you? Write about the memories that thing induces. Enjoy!

***

Well, the first think I thought of was remembering the cadence calls for the Army. These were used to help the troops march in time. Most times they were kind of funny. There are all kinds of them.

***

But, that’s not what’s on the left here. There are a lot of things to my left, but none are very interesting. There’s a box of tissues, a container of antibacterial hand wipes, a couple bottles of hand lotion, a couple bottles of perfume, and some assorted papers. Boring!

The prompt didn’t say how near or far to the left, though. Nearest would be my phone, which is on the computer desk. Farther left is the back door, which is open. I can see through the glass storm door that the wind is blowing very hard tossing the branches and leaves of the tree all around. It’s hot out 91 degrees F, and sunny.

So, that that for this time. Have a super weekend. 🙂

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.) … I’d not want to be either of these. How about just nice and happy! 🙂

 

Have you ever made someone cry? … Not that I know of, except for laughing so hard they cried at something goofy I said or did.

 

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter? … Definitely a dreamer. It takes a lot of dreaming and thinking about things before I ever get up and go to it.

 

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play? … This would be an electric bass guitar. I had one one time, with very good intentions of doing just this. Didn’t work out, so I sold my guitar to a guy who actually did play it in a band.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – May

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – May 

https://lindaghill.com/2021/04/30/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-may-1-2021/

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “may.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

***

Maybe I can think of something for this prompt word ‘May’. I’ve been trying to think of something for hours, but nothing much is happening, so I go do something else, and then come back to the prompt word. Now it’s getting close to the end of the day and still not a whole lot to say.

Here’s what I’ve thought of:

Happy first day of May!

It’s a pretty nice day!

Not much to say …

It’s just May!

***

May 11th is the anniversary of the TORNADO! I’ve written about it before. May 11, 1970 I was in an F5 Tornado. Still gives me nightmares. Link to that story is here

May is my sister’s birthday month.

May can be still chilly or downright hot here in TX.

I may have an idea or two for some things to post about in the month of May. Still thinking about them … one is about all the houses I’ve lived in over the years, and the other is a fun way to ‘find’ some strange poems.

And …. that’s about it.

Hope your weekend is going great! ❤

Which would you rather throw away: Love or Money?  …I wouldn’t want to throw away either of these.

Do you believe you should do one thing a day that scares you? … Only if you are the adventurous type.

What’s the last thing you do at night? … Read a book until I fall asleep, then turn out the light and turn on my white noise machine tuned to ocean waves.

If you could own a mythical creature (unicorn, phoenix, etc.), which one would you pick? (A nod to the soon ending 2021 A-Z Blogging Challenge, my topic this year “Mythical Creatures”) 

I would have the creature known as Bastet. This is an Egyptian cat goddess who was known for her protection over all cats and for watching over the household.

From a Wiki article:

Bastet is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women’s secrets, cats, fertility, and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and disease, especially diseases associated with women and children.

Here’s my Bastet cat necklace. It’s silver and sky blue with Egyptian decor engraved on it. My daughter bought it for me in Las Vegas at the Luxor Hotel.

What was the last TV show you binge-watched?   If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?

I don’t know if you’d call it bingeing or not, as we just have the regular cable type stations and whatever and however many episodes they put on is what we watch until they stop. There are a few old ones like Friends, 3s Company, Andy Griffith, & Everybody Loves Raymond that we watch like this. We don’t watch anything new.

What’s your most prized possession and why?

Well, the usual like family, health, and home of course. Then there’s things like phone, computer, & TV. I’m thinking this question is asking for a certain one item? ummm … yeah … I have lots of ‘stuff’ and I can’t think of any that is more prized over another. Sure I have many things from my relatives that have passed on, which I treasure because it brings back good memories. Knick-Knacks, dishes, furniture, cards & letters, photos … can’t pick just one thing.

If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?

Petting cats

Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?

No

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Difference

Standard

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Difference

***

https://lindaghill.com/2021/04/09/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-april-10-2021/

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “difference.” Whatever the word “difference” conjures first in your mind, write about it. Enjoy!

***

I always like these little ‘Spot the Difference’ games. Most times I can find them all, but sometimes they are harder than they look.

***

What else …?

Some things that are the same have different words for it, such as – couch

What we have in our living room to sit on we call a couch. However, it can also be called a divan, a davenport, or a sofa. If there is a difference in the size of it, it can be called a settee, or a love seat. Still talking about basically the same thing in all of these words. Strange isn’t it!

Now for something different …

When I’m asked to make a choice of say a TV show to watch, and I don’t really care at all, I usually say it makes no difference to me. That is the truth, because I really don’t care which one is on. I barely pay attention to the shows anyway. The mister watches whatever he wants, and it is just background noise while I’m over here reading and blogging. haha!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! ❤

Here are this weeks new questions for SYW from Melanie! Thanks! Join in and read other entries by clicking the above link. It’s fun. 🙂

***

What is knowledge?  … Knowledge is if you know something – anything, and I guess if you’re alive you know some things. Oh, isn’t that what the Scarecrow of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ wanted, and he got a diploma or something saying he had knowledge?

How do you define consciousness (self awareness)? … Well, if you are awake you are conscious. If you’re asleep or get knocked out you are unconscious and you aren’t aware of anything, except maybe you’re dreaming!

Is it possible to prove that other people besides yourself have consciousness? … hahaha well you can just look at them and tell if they are awake or not. Guess that would prove it.

Would you be able to tell if time had been altered in some way? … I think I would be able to. We just had Daylight Savings Time the other day, and yep, time was altered and I noticed it.

Do you like potato chips (they’re called ‘crisps’ in Europe I believe)? … I really do like potato chips of any kind. I’ve tried to eat ‘just one’ before and it can’t be done.  🙂

If not now, then when? … Later when I get ‘a round tuit’. 🙂

Can you describe your life in a six-word sentence? … I don’t know … Old lady that loves all cats? haha 🙂

Do you remember that thing people used to say, about how you swallow eight spiders a year while you sleep? It’s not true, but do you think you’ve ever swallowed any? What bug do you think you’ve eaten the most of by accident? … I’m pretty sure I’ve swallowed a gnat or two. Sometimes they drown in my coffee. I try to pick them out, though. I almost ate a roach one time, but caught it before I did. It was frozen in a pot pie. I’ve been suspicious of those ever since.

What’s the best approach to resolving conflict? … Walk away – far far away. By the time you get back hopefully the conflict will have been forgotten.
