Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Silent/Silence

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 1/19

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “silent/silence.” Use one or both in your post. Have fun!

***

Today’s SOCS prompt words are silent/silence. Thanks, Linda!

***

It’s hardly ever completely silent around here. The TV is on from the time we get up, until I turn it off at bed time. We watch some things, but mostly it is just background noise. Once in awhile I do turn off the sound for a little bit.

I like hearing the birds tweeting, the wind rustling the tree leaves, and sometimes a dog barking. But, if I hear a dog barking (the neighbor has two of them – a big one and a little one), so if I hear them barking, I know they are barking at our outside cats. I have to go check, because sometimes the dogs get out and like to aggravate the cats. I have to yell at the dog to go back home.

A couple of times this week the big dog got in our back yard through a gap in the fence where the board slat had come loose. We try to patch it up on our side, but really the fence isn’t ours, it’s the neighbor’s, and they do nothing about the rotten wood that is falling apart.

So yeah, the dogs get out and when they get too close to the cats, the cats take a good old fashioned swipe with their claws right on the nose of the dog. The dog goes yelping and whining back home.  Not much silence then!

But what I started out wanting to write about is this… blogging silence.

Do you ever get the feeling that some bloggers just don’t like you and your posts? All you ever get is silence from them. There’s been a few over the years like that. I go to their blogs, leaving likes and some comments, and I get nothing but silence. I see they leave likes and comments all over the place, but not to me, ever.

I hope I’m not guilty of this, as I do try to get back to everyone, even it it takes awhile. Sorry if I’ve missed you, it’s not intentional.

That’s fine…not everyone has to like everything someone does, and I’m not here just to collect likes, but it still makes me wonder why. Finally, you just give up trying with them, even though others rave about what a nice person they are, and are one of the most popular blogger out there. Hmmm…silence…I don’t know.

No Peeking

Standard

No Peeking

***

So, my eyes are burning and tired alredy this morning, and I’m just going to close tem…yeah….alredy closed. I’m typing this all without peeking, except for a little bit. Have to see where the publish button is at the end, and go to the peace sign symbol place to get the little copy, but that’s all.

There will \probably be some mess ups, but mostly I know wehre all the letter keys on the keuyboard are with oout looking. I learned tis many many years ago.

We had an old manual Underwood typewriter…a big clunky old thing that I leanred to tope on when I ws a kid. There were little caps we put on top of all the letters to hide them. We did have a cheat chart though in case we needed it.

Anyway, to rest my eyes, I’m doing this without looking much. Nothing is going on here this moring. We had a tiny bit of thunder, but I don’t think it more than sprinkled earlier.

The mister is watching TV and going from one channel to another with American Pickers, to Friends, to whatever else.

I’ve had my coffee, and iced tea …need to get some more.  Breakfast is long gone and dishes done too.

I don’t know what I’ll post today. I did the Flower of the Day one already…now what? I mostly never know. Oh, I need to go listen to some songs songs…from yesterday’s Song LyricSunday posts. That’s always fun to do.

I wonder how many words I’ve tuyped already? Does it look like a lot or not? I’m still resisting peeking at this for a little longer.

I took a tiny peek out the back door (not y\my tuyping) and the baby kitties are out there playing in the yard, and climbng on the scratching post. They are so cute!!!

 

WEll, maybe this is enough for now, and I’ll think of a real post about something in a little while.

Here’s wishing you all a fun and interesting day!

Jigsaw Puzzle Update

Jigsaw Puzzle Update

***

It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned the jigsaw puzzles we work, and we are still going strong on completing them. Here’s how it’s been going.

I believe all these can be enlarged by clicking the photo.

***

We just finished this one today. It took a long time, as all those sunflowers were pretty hard to do. There were so many yellow and yellow/orange pieces!

***

This one was pretty cool. It was a glow in the dark one, and the middle photo shows it actually glowing.

 

***

This one was fun to do. The hardest part was the rug.

***

This one was interesting. It was fun to work, but kind of hard. At first we thought the picture and the puzzle pieces just didn’t match up, but in the end it did. There was a little booklet, with a story of a murder mystery, and after working the puzzle we were to find out who did it.

***

This one was fun, and not too awfully hard to work. Lots of kitty cuteness!

***

Here’s some more cat puzzles. I can’t remember in which order we did these. Seems we’ve bought so many puzzles featuring cats!

    

***

Here’s one that’s not about cats. It has toys and games from a long time ago. It was fun to see some that we had when we were kids.

***

I liked this one a lot, because it was all about spooky things of Halloween!

***

This one is the newest one, which we started today. So far, so good. I’ve already got most of the outside border done.

***

So, that’s pretty much up to date, if I didn’t forget one. Hope you enjoyed looking! 🙂

Seven More Jigsaw Puzzles

Standard

Seven More Jigsaw Puzzles

***

We’ve been steadily working on our jigsaw puzzles this past month. Here’s six that we’ve finished, and one we just started on.

This first one we just started yesterday. So far, so good. It’s called, “Puzzler’s Desk”, and is a Buffalo brand puzzle, and is 750 pieces.

***

***

I liked this next one a lot. We just got done with it a day or so ago. It has funny words on the items in the pantry, all to do with cats. 🙂 There were lots of pieces with specific words or pictures on them, so it was easier than some other puzzles. It is called, “Ethel the Gormet”, and is from, “The Cats of Charles Wysocki”, a Buffalo brand puzzle. It is 750 pieces

 

***

This one is called, “Kitten Kitchen Capers”, and is a Buffalo brand puzzle. It is 750 pieces, and was fun to do. Those cats were sure making a mess.

***

This one is called, “Classic Gas”. It is 750 pieces, from, “Wheels”, from the Master Pieces brand puzzle.

  

***

Here’s a few extra photos of puzzle things: 2 pieces that look like other things, puzzle dust (from the cardboard they are made from), and a large spatula we use to gather up lots of puzzle pieces at one time. 🙂

  

***

This one is called, “Roadside America”. It is a White Mountain puzzle brand, and is 1,000 pieces. Lots of things to find on this one!

***

This one is called, “The Man Cave”, and has lots of hobby type things in the room. It is a Ravensburger puzzle of 1,000 pieces.

***

This one is called, “Picture Purrfect”. It is one of the Cats series of Buffalo brand puzzles, and is 750 pieces. Very cute. 🙂

***

Next up I think we will do a Halloween themed puzzle that we already bought! 🙂

JIGSAW

I got some jigsaw puzzles for Christmas. This is the first one I’ve worked on, and just completed it yesterday. It has lots of cute kitties in the picture. I only worked on it about an hour a day for a week or so.  These are fun to do. Next up will be harder…750 pieces of a Mexican Sugar Skull! 🙂 Do y’all like working jigsaw puzzles?
